Slime is all the rage right now and even though I don’t see much of it in my kindergarten classroom, I still hear about it from other teachers. I have also been hearing about it from my 10 year old, fourth grade daughter. It seems like her and all of her classmates are obsessed with it and everyone has a different recipe. My daughter has begged me to make some, but to be quite honest, I was a little apprehensive to make our own batch. I had read quite a few stories and seen a few videos on kids getting chemical burns from borax and other related ingredients that are in some slime recipes. That in itself was enough for me to say no. But my daughter convinced me that there were some super easy and safe recipes, so we headed out to Target to buy the ingredients. So now let me introduce you to a recipe for Simple Safe Slime Recipe for Teachers, by a teacher!


Ingredients:

1 bottle of Glue (We used regular white glue and glitter glue and both worked!)

1/4 tsp Baking Soda

Buffered Saline Solution (Contact Solution)

Food Coloring (Optional)

First, pour the glue into a bowl. (honestly, this takes the longest of any of the steps.)

Next, add the baking soda.

Begin to stir. Add food coloring. (If desired)

Stir and begin to squirt in the saline solution.

You will immediately notice a change in consistency. Continue to stir. (You can add some saline solution to your hands and remove the slime, so you can manipulate with your hands.)

And finally you have Simple and Safe Slime, made with only 3 {safe} ingredients!!

    1. Thanks Anne for stopping by! Honestly, 1 bottle of glue and the other ingredients made enough to fill a little more than one of the shown Ziploc containers.

    1. I didn’t exactly measure it, because as soon as you start adding it, the ingredients start to combine into slime. I would say it’s maybe 1/8 cup. But you just add as needed. Hope that helps!
