How To Make St. Patrick’s Day Slime

  1. Empty entire bottle of clear glue into a bowl. One bottle of clear glue makes a generous helping of slime to play with.
  2. Add one tablespoon of baking soda.
  3. Pour in one tablespoon of saline solution.
  4. Squeeze in 1-2 drops of green food coloring. Trust us, a little goes a long way!adding glue, baking soda, saline, and food coloring to bowl for slime
  5. Stir in your food coloring and add more to get your favorite shade of green.
  6. Pour in your preferred amount of glitter.
  7. Use your mixing spoon and quickly stir your St. Patrick’s Day slime. At first, your green glitter slime will be VERY sticky and will get all over your hands if you touch it. It takes a few seconds for it to mix and form.
  8. During this process, if your slime is still sticky, you can squirt in small amounts of the saline solution until the slime becomes less sticky and starts to pull away from the sides of the bowl.
  9. Take the slime out of the bowl and start kneading it until it holds its shape. The more you knead it, the less sticky it will be!adding glitter to slime mixture

To add little St. Paddy’s day whimsy, knead in some gold coins for good luck!
