Inside Fun: Make Your Own Slime


Keep busy and banish boredom at home with this fun hands-on project.


  • ½ cup of water
  • ½ cup white glue
  • 1 tbsp saline solution
  • ¼ - ½ tsp baking soda
  • Food coloring (optional)

Make It

In a bowl, mix ½ cup water and ½ cup of glue well to combine completely.

Add food coloring, if desired.

Stir in ¼ to ½ tsp of baking soda

Mix in 1 tbsp saline solution and stir until slime forms and pulls aways from the sides of the bowl. (If your slime still feels too sticky, you may need a few more drops of saline solution.)

Start kneading your slime! It will appear stringy at first but just work it around with your hands and you will notice the consistency changes.

Be careful, adding too much saline solution can make for a slime that’s too stiff and not stretchy.

You can also mix in other ingredients, such as glitter, foam beads or shaving cream.
