I am sharing today a tutorial that your kiddos will love.

We { Mimi and I } are showing you how to make Glitter Slime

in just four simple steps.


How fun is this?

Let’s get with it!



1 Elmer’s Glitter Glue

1 Cup Water

1 tsp. Borax

1 Tb Water




Mix 1 tsp. Borax and 1 Cup water together.

You can find the Borax at your local stores in the Laundry section.

Call me crazy but I love the box.



Have your little helper empty the Glitter Glue into a bowl.

Oh the anticipation!



Add 1 TB. Water to the glue and mix it together.

This will help the glue to become a little more flexible.



Then pour the Borax mixture inside of the bowl.

Let their little hands work the magic as they combine the glue and the mixture together.

Right away you will see how the Glitter Slime will start to form.

I love this part when you hear them say oooh and cool at the same time!

Isn’t it pretty?


Don’t leave the slime in the water mixture too long since it will make the slime too hard.

Finish mixing it in your hands.

It will look like this!


TIP: Don’t throw the extra Borax mixture yet.

If the slime gets too slimy you can put it back inside and it will harden some more.

We made the Glitter Slime in three colors.


At this point all that was left was to have fun…

Time to play!


To store it we used baby food jars.


And it was at this point that I thought

Wait a minute! 

What about if we make some Halloween Glitter Slime Monsters with it.

So we did!

You can check out the tutorial here.

 They should be scary but I am going to say that they are super cute!

Happy Tuesday!
