I have tried and loved all different recipes for slime over the past few years. This time, I started with THIS recipe from Allison at Learn - Play - Imagine. I liked this recipe because there was no exact measuring and that totally spoke to me that day. I just wanted to quickly dump everything together and have a fun and colorful activity to keep my girls entertained while I made dinner. I started with her base and then added a few other ingredients to get the right color and sparkle for our troll themed slime.
Glue (or gallon size if you want to make lots of slime)
Fine Glitter (optional)
Since I was making 3 small batches (one for each color), I had a separate bowl for each one and I used about:
2 oz of glue
2 oz of liquid starch
1 small squirt of paint
1 small shake of glitter
This recipe is based on a 50/50 mix of glue and liquid starch so you can make your batch of slime as big or as small as you want if you keep those proportions. Mine made enough so each girl had their own small batch to play with.
So full disclosure here - I almost gave up at this point. The slime was very stringy and lumpy and wasn't blending in with the liquid in the bowl. I dumped out the liquid and had my girls keep mixing with their hands on the table to keep them entertained. At this point I went in search of a new recipe and started it (but it was an even bigger fail). I turned around and the slime the was the perfect consistency.
their Trolls characters and played with them in the slime for almost an hour and then play with it again the next day.
