How To Make Rainbow Slime

Rainbow slime

Empty the glue into a large bowl.

Fill the empty glue bottle 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 bowl with glue and stir to combine.

If you are adding additional glitter, confetti, or food coloring, stir it into the glue mixture.

Add contact lens solution to the glue mixture and stir well. (Note: regular glue will require less contact lens solution than glitter glue.

Add the contact lens solution slowly, mixing between additions, and add only enough to bring the glue together into a soft ball.)

Remove the slime from the bowl allowing any excess liquid to remain in the bowl.  The slime will be sticky.
