DIY Slime Kits


For Christmas, Peyton & Charlotte asked for the Nickelodeon Mystical Slime Kit by CrazArt. Super cute kit, but would absolutely be gone in 1 day! In order to have enough slime for all 3 girls to play with (including a non-toxic, “taste friendly” option just in case the little #bossbaby tries to eat hers!), I decided to make a kit for each of them myself.


Remember, that making slime is a science experiment and ALL science experiments should be supervised by an adult at all times.


How to Make Saline Slime


I bought all of my slime supplies from Amazon except for the Up & Up Saline Solution, which we highly recommended for making slime. You can click on the links below to be directed to the Amazon or Target to purchase supplies for your kits!

Saline Solution Slime Kit Supplies:


Saline Solution Slime Recipe:

  • Mixing bowl and spoon
  • White Glue – 1 cup
  • Water – 1/4 cup
  • Baking Soda – 1 tsp
  • Up&Up Saline Solution – 1/2 tbsp to 1 tbsp depending on stiffness preference
  • Wilton Color Right Food Coloring
  • Glitter

To Make Slime:

  1. Mix the glue and water in bowl until combined
  2. Add your baking soda followed by your food coloring
  3. Add saline solution. NOTE: Stretchy solution = 1/2 tbsp, Stiff consistency = 1 tbsp
  4. Keep stirring until the slime forms away from the sides of the bowl, then begin kneading slime with your hands
  5. Keep kneading until the slime is no longer sticky, which can take up to 5 minutes. Use this time to knead in your glitter (or whatever else you’d like to add for decoration)

Voila! It’s that easy to make slime! It’s a little bit harder to make the Borax or starch based slime recipes, but the saline recipe is easier to get right the first time! 


The girls are going to love getting their baskets full of slime making goodies and we will absolutely have a blast doing some slime experiments over the next few weeks!


For the #BossBaby Slime Kit, I chose the following recipe from Teach Beside Me

You can also find some DIY Slime Recipes on Pinterest for some more ideas on what to put in your slime or to make some seasonal slimes too! Below is my board of awesome Pinterest sensory play ideas.
