Clear Bug Slime

  • Slime Ingredients:
  • 5 oz of clear glue
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tbsp contact solution
  • plastic bugs
  • Container for slime

1. Thoroughly mix the 5 oz of clear glue and 1/2 cup water in a bowl.

2. Mix in 1/2 tsp baking soda. This will determine how thick your slime will be.

3. Add 1 tbsp of contact solution. This makes the slime sticky, so don't add too much! Mix this until it pulls from the side of the bowl.

4. Knead the slime until it is less sticky, occasionally adding plastic bugs.

5. Store in an airtight container.
