How Long is DIY Slime Good?
This amazing Glow in the dark slime is good for about a week of use. After that time it starts to become a little too sticky and slimy to play with. However, if you will add some activator, it will help out the slime a bit and in this case, the activator would be the contact solution.
- 1 (8 ounce) plastic storage jar (available at Michaels or on Amazon.
- 2 (6 ounce) bottles Elmer’s Glow-in-the-Dark Glue in green (You only need about 1 ½ bottles)
- About ¼ cup warm water
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- 1½ tablespoon contact lens solution (containing boric acid)
Supplies For the Jar
- 1 sheet black cardstock or construction paper
- 1 small piece red cardstock or construction paper
- 1 small piece white cardstock or construction paper
- 2 black 1-inch pom poms
- Glue stick, glue dots, or hot glue
- Or print these Face and Eyes Hair
How to make Frankenstein Glow in the Dark Slime
Empty the glue into a large bowl.
Fill the empty glue bottles about ⅓ full with warm water (about ¼ cup) and seal with the lid. Shake well to combine the remaining glue with the water. Pour into the bowl with glue and stir to combine.
Add the baking soda to the glue and stir to mix thoroughly.
Add contact lens solution to the glue mixture and stir well until the slime becomes a ball.
The slime will be sticky. Begin to play with the slime, kneading it as you would bread dough, to bring the slime together. The slime is ready when it is no longer sticky.
Best if stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator when not in use.
To create the jar:
Cut the templates from the designated colors.
Trace the circumference of the lid on a piece of black construction paper. Cut it out. Glue to the top of the lid.
Cut a strip from the black construction paper that is ½ inch by 9 inches. Attach this to the rim of the lid using glue.
Attach the facial features to the jar as well as the hair to the lid.
