Things You'll Need
(2) 5-ounce bottles clear Elmer's glue
3 to 4 tablespoons contact solution (with boric acid)
1 teaspoon baking soda, divided
2 tablespoons green glitter
2 tablespoons red glitter
Sequins, polymer clay sprinkles and/or buttons
Polymer clay sprinkles are available on Etsy.
Empty one bottle of clear glue into a bowl.
Fill the bottle with warm water until it's about 1/3 full. Replace the cap, shake well and pour it into the bowl.
Add 1/2 teaspoon baking soda. Stir well.
Mix in 2 tablespoons of glitter. You can use multiple colors if you'd like.
Add 1 1/2 tablespoons of contact solution. Mix well until firm. The slime will be sticky at first, but it will firm up as you stir. You can also knead it with your hands if you don't mind the stickiness. If needed, add another 1/2 tablespoon of contact solution.
Fold in the sequins, polymer clay sprinkles and/or buttons. Feel free to mix and match.
Store the slime in a sealed container in the refrigerator when not in use.
Repeat with the green glitter. Happy holidays!
