Baking Soda Slime

Recipe
Optional additions:
Note:  You can use any variety of Elmers glue to make this recipe.  However, I do not recommend substituting other glue brands, as the results may vary.  The contact lens solution you are using must contain boric acid.  The solution that we used can be purchased on Amazon here.

Method
  • Begin by pouring 1 cup of glue into a large mixing bowl, using one bowl for each color of baking soda slime that you wish to make.
