Entertain Your Kids in 5 minutes - Adventures With Ellie

Entertain Your Kids in 5 minutes

I must admit I was trying to avoid to get into this activity because well let's face it creating anything slimy can get interesting, but I decided to jump and said what the heck let's make a mess.

To my surprise there actually wasn't one! Now are you wondering what am I talking about? Did you catch that hint. Yup I'm gonna share how to make slime in less then 5 minutes.


*Baking Soda
*Food Coloring of your choice
*Contact Solution (I know say what!)

Of course you will need a bowl and something to mix with. It's pretty easy and promises for loads of fun! I gave each of my girls their own spoons and bowl to help keep the peace.

They got ready to get to work. I told them they were in charge all I did was pour the glue and then the rest was up to them.  (FYI I used my Micheal's coupon to get that big 1/2 gallon of glue! )


Start with 1/2 cup of glue, then add 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda get your kids to put their muscles to work  as they mix and then add the food coloring of choice. Get them mixing again!

Now this is when the magic happens. You add 1 tablespoon of contact solution and have the mix and it very quickly changes in the slime substance!

The last step you have to move quickly and mix it and pull out the bowl and there you have it!

As you can see my girls really have been loving this and there has been making slime the past 3 days! Oh I must warn you if you keep it out it will dry out.  What I did is wrapped them up in saran wrap to keep the moisture in them.

If they do happen to dry out good thing is it's pretty easy and fun to make some more! My girls also made different kinds by adding glitter glue in their slime so you can try that too. If you make some slime let me know.

Yay, for easy and fun crafty projects. I've got a few more that I'll be sharing perfect for the upcoming Summer time can't wait to share with you.
