Half term is still going strong and we have been experimenting, How to make slime using products from the UK. We have made unicorn slime, fluffy slime, glittery slime and not so good to use slime. Today on the blog we are sharing a tried and tested recipe from our farmhouse here in rainy Bedfordshire.
So I guess if you are here wanting to learn How to make slime using products from the UK then you should probably grab a pen and write a shopping list. Remember to check your cupboards before heading off to the shops as you may even have the products at home.
Please note that although these products were totally safe on my child’s skin, they may not be on yours so I take no responsibility for items that you choose to use.
Having said that, however, you choose to make your slime the most important task is to have fun. We had so much fun experimenting and using safe liquids we found in the bakery cupboard to try and produce different textures and colours.
You will need:
PVA Glue. We use shop bought glue from hobby craft.
Bicarbonate of soda
Contact lens cleaner Must include borax in the ingredients
Shaving foam if you want your slime to be fluffy!
We start off by using around 3 small cups of PVA glue and a TBSP of bicarbonate of soda. Using a big bowl, mix the two products together and decide which sort of slime you would like to make. Now is a good time to add food coloring, glitter or even as we did, sprinkles!
Or all three.
Gradually start to add the eye contact solution one TBSP at a time until the mixture begins to stick and has a consistency like slime.
