Now that we finally have some cooler weather, there’s no better time to get outside! I’ve seen a bunch of slime recipes all summer, but have been extremely hesitant due to all of the ingredients and how messy it can get. Then, I found this wonderful recipe, that’s basically only 3 ingredients and confetti! The best part is the lack of food coloring, which means less mess for me! This recipe is just as amazing as it sounds, and it’s a perfect activity for the whole family. Check out all the details for my favorite family activity this fall!
- 4 oz of clear Elmer’s glue
- 1/4 tsp baking soda
- Multicolored confetti
- Saline solution – 1 tbsp or more as needed
- First, grab a large mixing bowl or wide cup to mix your slime in. Then you can start mixing the clear glue and baking soda.
- Next, mix in a tbsp of confetti. Then very carefully pour in the saline solution. Make sure to stir while pouring the saline. Feel free to add in as much confetti as you want, just mix in slowly.
- Then squirt in some more saline solution into the mixture and start mixing with your hands. It helps to apply some saline to your hands so it doesn’t stick to your slime!
- Keep adding the saline solution in small increments, until the slime is no longer sticky. It might be easier to knead the slime on a mat or flat surface.
Keep in mind, there are so many variations you can apply to this recipe. Maybe you’re looking for a little more spunk but aren’t adding food coloring is worth the hassle. There’s a great recipe for glitter slime, and you just have to substitute your glue for Elmer’s glitter glue! Both adults and kids will have a blast stretching, bending and squeezing your slime. It’s fun to make, fun to play with, and is stress-free. What are some of your favorite family activities you plan to do this fall? Leave your comments below!
