How do you celebrate Earth Day? Do you plant trees or visit local parks? There are SO many fun activities to do with your family since it is Spring and Earth Day. If it isn’t quite Spring where you are or you are not able to make trips to your local parks, here is a great recipe for DIY Earth Day Inspired Slime.
Slime has been the latest craze for kids and is fun to make with just a few ingredients. This Earth Day Inspired slime has blue and green colors which are perfect for Earth Day and will be SO fun to play with.
DIY Earth Day Inspired Slime
- 2 cup hot water
- 1 tsp borax
- ½ cup water, room temperature
- (2) 5 oz bottle of clear glue – Elmer’s works best
- Fine glitter (blue and green)
- 2 plastic containers for mixing
- 1 slime container for storing
In a second container, pour ¼ cup of room temperature water. Squeeze a 5 oz bottle of clear glue into the water. (We go through a lot of glue here so we buy it in the larger containers. It’s cheaper and nice to have it on hand!)
(If you want crystal clear slime – skip the glitter and add ins!)
Pour the glue mixture into the hot water and borax mix. Let it sit for 20-30 seconds. I let it sit just long enough to rinse my empty bowl or you can use a third bowl.
The slime will start to form pretty fast in the hot water. Pull it out and put it in your empty bowl. It will be pretty sticky at this point. That’s ok!
Knead it for a few minutes and it will thicken and set.
Repeat the process, except this time add green glitter instead. Have fun swirling your blue and green slime!
Store in an airtight container.
