Patriotic slime

Easiest Recipe Do it yourself slime

Step 1

Project Notes:

– All types of Elmer’s® glue work with this recipe. For Patriotic Slime, we used two 5 fl. oz. bottles of clear glue and one 4 fl. oz. bottle of white glue.

– Be careful when children are crafting with sequins, as the product does have a choke hazard warning on the label.

– Protect your work surface with wax (or palette) paper and wear an apron (or other protective garment) to protect clothing, as the food coloring may stain.

Find your favorite glue slime recipe. For the Patriotic Slime, add color to each slime according to your recipe’s instructions.

Step 2

This slime has three colored stripes: blue starry slime, red glitter slime and white slime. To make blue starry slime, use one 5 fl. oz. bottle of clear glue. To get the color shown, add Royal Blue food coloring, according to your recipe’s instructions.

TIP: Dip a craft stick into the food coloring container, then mix the color into the glue, stirring thoroughly until it’s completely blended. Always use a new, clean craft stick when dipping into your food coloring in order to avoid cross-contamination.

Step 3

Flatten out your slime on a piece of wax (or palette) paper and sprinkle on fine glitter in silver and dark blue. Fold the slime’s edges in toward the center to blend the glitters into the slime. Continue until they are evenly distributed throughout the slime. Repeat to mix tiny silver stars into the slime.

Step 4

To make red slime, make your favorite 5 oz. clear glue recipe. To get the color shown, add red food coloring. Repeat Step 3 to blend red glitter into the slime. Continue until it is evenly distributed throughout the slime.

Step 5

To make white slime, use a recipe that calls for a 4 fl. oz. bottle of white glue. You do not need to add anything else to this slime.

Step 6

Form each slime into a long strip and lay each one next to the other on your non-stick surface. Now, fold and twist the slimes together until you have blended them just the way you like.

Step 7

Store your slime in an airtight, sealable container (or re-sealable plastic bag).
