Slime. Kids love it, parents hate it. Well, I guess I don’t hate it but I sure don’t love it as much as my kids do! It’s a fun activity to do with them though that gets them busy and creative! I’ve got the details on how to make purple glitter slime without borax and my kids loved it! The one thing I love about making slime is how you can make it so many different ways.
How To Make Purple Glitter Slime
Here are the supplies you will need to make the purple glitter slime.
- White Glue – you can use regular Elmer’s School Glue but if you plan on making a few different batches of slime, get this 1/2 gallon of white glue that is perfect for slime making!
- Activator – I prefer using Contact Lens Solution but I know a lot of people prefer using Liquid Starch. I’ve also tried Elmer’s Magical Liquid Activator and wasn’t impressed.
- Baking Soda
- Royal Purple Acrylic Paint
- Foil Sheets
Here are the directions to make the purple glitter slime.
- In a large bowl, add 2 cups of white glue.
- Add the purple paint and stir until you get the color that you like. You may have to add more paint if you’re wanting a darker purple.
- If you’re using liquid starch, add 1/3 cup to the glue and paint mixture. If you’re using contact solution, use about 3 tablespoons.
- Add 2 tablespoons of baking soda.
- Now, it’s time for the kids to have some fun. Let them start using spoons or their hands to mix the slime.
- The more you mix it or knead it, the thicker it will get. Lay a piece of the silver foil sheet on top of the slime. As your kids knead it with their hands, the foil will start to break and will mix into the slime making a really cool looking slime mixture!
This purple glitter slime is really cool to make and my girls loved it. I love that you could use different paint colors or foil sheets to mix it up! Have you made slime with your kids? What kind of variations have you made?
