Make your own rainbow slime

Do you need a fun holiday or weekend project for the children? Learn how to make rainbow slime with our easy recipe. For this lesson we've used Mont Marte School Glue Gel, Mont Marte Scented Glitter Glue, bicarb soda and laundry detergent. Simply mix all your ingredients in a bowl and your slime will be ready to go!


Step 1. Adding the Glue.

The first step is to measure out 74 ml of glue. One way to measure the correct amount is to draw a little line half way up the bottle. Pour this into the mixing bowl.

Step 2. Adding the Baking Soda.

Next we need to add 2 teaspoons of baking soda to the glue and mix it thoroughly with a spoon. Baking Soda is also known as Bi Carb Soda. When you are shopping for baking soda, remember that it [ Baking Soda ] is a different ingredient to baking powder. Baking powder is a rising agent, so be careful not to buy this by mistake.

Step 3. Adding the liquid laundry detergent.

Next addition to the slime is to add 1 teaspoon of liquid laundry detergent to the mix. As soon as the detergent is added the mixture will thicken up.

Not all laundry detergents contain the same ingredients. So some experimentation may be required.

Step 4. Adding the glitter.

The last step is to add a bottle of Scented Glitter Glue. Mix this thoroughly. Once it thickens to the viscosity of pizza dough, take it out of the bowl and mix it manually. If it is too sticky add another teaspoon of Baking Soda. Continue to stretch and knead it until it turns into the correct consistency. Follow theses same steps to make Strawberry, Green, Yellow, Blue and Purple Slime.
