Home Made Glitter Slime

Most children love playing with Slime and it's relatively easy to make some at home. This recipe is for Glitter slime because who doesn't love a spot of glitter, particularly at Christmas time.


PVA or clear glue

Bicarbonate of Soda

Contact Lens Solution

Gel food colouring

Glitter (optional)


Tip 1 cup of the PVA glue into a clean mixing bowl.

Measure out 1 teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda and mix together well with the glue.

Add a small blob of food colouring and some glitter and mix it into the glue and bicarbonate of soda mixture until it has fully blended. Add more food colouring if you want your slime to be bright and bold.

Measure out 1 tablespoon of contact lens solution. Continue to combine until the mixture starts to become stringy and come away from the edges of the mixing bowl.

Take the mixture out of the bowl and start kneading it with your hands. You may need to do this for about 30 seconds, or until it stops sticking to your fingers. It should become elastic and super stretchy. If it is still too sticky, just add a few more drops of contact lens solution to the mixture. Be careful as too much may result in your slime becoming too brittle.
