What you will need to make the slime:
- 1 cup Clear Elmer’s Glue
- 3 cups shaving cream (like Barbasol)
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- 1½ tablespoon contact lens solution (containing boric acid) This Elmer’s Activator is good.
For the polar bear face you will need:
- Black foam cut into a nose
- Jumbo wiggly eyes
Optional Steps for more bling!
- About 1 ½ tablespoon glitter in white, silver, or iridescent
- Food coloring or gel
- Toys or foil confetti (if desired)
How to make the slime:
1. Empty the glue into a large bowl.
2. Whisk in the shaving cream.
3. Add the baking soda to the glue mixture and stir to mix thoroughly.
4. If you are adding additional glitter, confetti, or coloring, stir these ingredients into the glue mixture.
5. Add contact lens solution to the glue mixture and stir well. (Note: regular glue will require less contact lens solution than glitter glue. Add the contact lens solution slowly, mixing between additions, and add only enough to bring the glue together into a soft ball.)
6. Remove the slime from the bowl allowing any excess liquid to remain in the bowl. (There might not be any extra liquid. That’s okay.) The slime will be sticky. Begin to play with the slime, kneading it as you would bread dough, to bring the slime together. The slime is ready when no longer sticky.
7. Best if stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator when not in use.
