We transformed this notably icky and gooey yucky stuff into the most magical princess slime that will leave your little ones in awe.
I just love making all types of fun crafts with Brinkley and even my boys love playing with this stuff. But today we really wanted to make it special with a princess fairytale theme.
So what better way than to create something pretty (well, that may be a bit of a paradox!) and girly than with glitter fairy-dust!! I really think this may be the prettiest slime I've ever seen! Check out how we created this whimsical DIY slime.
What you'll need:
- Clear Glue 8 oz (3 x 4 oz bottles)
- Baking Soda
- Food Coloring
- Eye Contact Solution (I recommend the contact solution that I've linked here as the one in the photo didn't work well)
- Heart Confetti/Sparkles
- Mixing Bowls and Spoons
How to make:
- Start by adding the clear glue to a bowl (4 oz)
- Then add the glitter of choice
- Add about 2-3 drops of pink food coloring
- Add a teaspoon of baking soda
- Combine these ingredients
- Then add a few drops of the eye contact solution
- Stir and add more contact solution to get desired consistency
- Make a few variations of colors and glitter/confetti (make some lighter by adding less food coloring)
We love this recipe the best! It is by far the most kid friendly recipe we have tried (and we have tried them all)... There are so many ways to make slime but this one is a no brainer and turns out great every time. It has the right consistency and doesn't harder over night which a lot of the other recipes have done. I like the contact solution formula much better than the borax versions. The borax versions I've tried have always come out more like gack or flubber. And for those of you who may not know what the difference is well, it's really just that slime is easier to pull and play with. Gack/flubber just kind of wiggles and around and is more dense. I hope that helps but definitely let me know your thoughts and other recipes below in the comments section! Would love to try them out!
Here we have taken all the colors and lined them up to create this gorgeous pattern! The kids will love mixing and combining the different colors. It reminds me of the old fashioned candy pulling that fascinated me as a kid!!
TIP: Have a boy at home or a not-so-girly-girl that may not be into this pink fairytale slime? Well, simply switch out the pink for blue and add stars instead of hearts and you have a great galaxy slime recipe that I am sure will impress!
