    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.  Set aside.
      
     For Red & Blue Glitter Slime:
    1. Pour out one bottle of Elmer’s Red Glitter Glue into a container.
    2. Add ½ tbsp. of baking soda and mix it thoroughly.
    3. Add 1¼ tbsp. of contact lens solution.
    4. Mix until slime forms and it begins to get harder to mix.
    5. Take the slime out and begin kneading with both of your hands.
    6. If needed, add ¼ tbsp. contact lens solution to make the slime less sticky. Set aside.
    7. Repeat steps 1-6 with Blue Glitter Glue to create blue glitter glue slime.

    Putting it Together:
    Take all 3 slimes and lay them next to each other. If desired, twist and knead for a swirled effect. Note: If you knead too much, the colors will eventually mix and become one.


    *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.
