Make glitter slime

Little artists will have a ball making glitter slime, plus it’s a great activity for childhood development.

Playing and making glitter slime helps children to improve their gross and fine motor skills, concentration and coordination.

This project is great for those rainy days where kids just want to play. Best of all, you don’t need a lot to make glitter slime and the glitter is totally optional, so you won’t have to worry about the house becoming a glittery mess, which if you ask us, really is a win, win.

Extra materials you will need:

  • 2 tsp green food colouring
  • 3 cups shaving cream
  • 5 tbs contact lens solution (make sure it has boric acid in it as this is the slime activator)
  • 2 tsp of bicarb soda (to reduce stickiness)

Measure 1 cup of Mont Marte Clear School Glue and pour into a mixing bowl.

To dispose of glitter slime thoughtfully, it’s best to cut up the slime into small pieces before throwing it away in a general household garbage bin, cutting it up will help slime break down quicker than in a large chunk. Or alternatively make the slime in smaller batches and keep it in an air-tight container to store.
