    Elmer's Recipe for Pastel Swirl Slime

    This pastel swirl slime is so dreamy and mesmerizing. Here’s how to make your own. It’s super easy and kid-friendly!
    • Easy to Moderate

    Supplies Needed

    4 x 4 fl oz Elmer’s White School Glue
    4 x ½ tbsp. of baking soda
    4 x 1 tbsp. of contact lens solution
    Your choice of 4 different pastel colored food coloring


    1. Pour out an entire bottle of Elmer’s White School Glue into a container. 
    2. Add the first pastel colored food coloring and mix until reach desired color.
    3. Add ½ tbsp. of baking soda and mix thoroughly.
    4. Add 1 tbsp. of contact lens solution.
    5. Mix until slime forms and it begins to get harder to mix.
    6. Take the slime out and begin kneading with both of your hands.
    7. If needed, add ¼ tbsp. contact lens solution to make the slime less sticky, and set aside.
    8. For each of the remaining pastel colors, repeat steps 1-7.
    9. Once all four colors are created, lay all colors side by side and swirl to make your magical pastel slime swirl. If you knead too much, the colors will eventually mix and become one color.

    *Adult supervision is required; This project is not appropriate for children under the age of 3 years. Always wash your hands before and after making and playing with slime. Warning: If large quantities of contact lens solution are accidentally ingested (greater than a tablespoon), get medical attention immediately.

    *Some contact solution brands work better than others, check out our Slime Tips section for all the details.
