If there is one craft activity kids go crazy for, it’s slime.
I recently had a rare morning to spend one-on-one with my youngest (aged 6) and when asked what she wanted to do for the day, the answer was to make glow in the dark slime.
We bought two bottles of the pink glow in the dark Elmer’s glue and went to work to make our glow in the dark slime.
- 2 Bottles of Glow in the Dark Elmer’s glue (available at Target and Woolworths)
- 1 cup of warm water
- 1 teaspoon of bi carb soda
- Contact lens solution (available at chemist)
- Bowl and spoon
- Dissolve the bi carb soda in the jug of warm water. Mix until dissolved.
- Empty the glue into a separate bowl.
- Slowly add the bi carb water and mix with the glue.
- Add squirts of the contact lens solution and mix until it thickens and starts to look like slime.
- Stretch and knead to get a slime consistency the kids can play with.
The real test was to take it into a dark room to see if it would really glow in the dark….
And it did! The pictures are hazy but that slime sure does glow!
It’s pretty cool playing with it in daylight too.
