Basic Slime

What you’ll need

  • Contact lens solution or saline solution. Get it cheap as you can find it BUT IT MUST contain BORIC ACID. Check the ingredients list because if it doesn’t have this it won’t work
  • Glue. Experiment with this! PVA school glue, glitter glue, coloured glue there’s lots of different types of glue out there now that will work.
  • Bicarb (1 teaspoon per slime ball)
  • Bowl or container for mixing.
  • Glitter, foam beads, sequins, essential oil and other bits to experiment with. Not essential, but just cool to try different add ins when you get your slime base perfected.

And a good tip to remember... vinegar dissolves slime.

How to make it

  1. Pour all of your glue into the plastic bowl
  2. Pop in one teaspoon of bicarb and mix until any lumps are dissolved.
  3. At this stage add in any add ins (if you want to) glitter, foam beads, shaving cream, essential oil etc. If you want to experiment, this is the point to do it!
  4. Now you need to add your saline/contact lens solution. Start with a good squirt (2ish tablespoons, but no need to measure) and then stir like crazy. You’ll notice straight away that it starts to polymerize* which is very cool.
  5. Keep stirring like there’s no tomorrow. Get those biceps working and really stir it. Try and get as much of the saline/contact solution combined with the glue as possible. Keep stiring, keep stiring! If your mixture is still sticky, add a squirt more solution and stir. Repeat until you get to the point you can lift your slime ball out of the container and now it’s time to squeeze, squelch and squish your slime in your hands until it’s not sticky anymore.
  6. If you need to you can keep adding saline/contact solution (little bit at a time) until you can stretch your slime without it sticking to your hands.
  7. Go crazy! Your slime is complete!
  8. Store in an air tight container
  9. Make sure you read and obey the slime rules below

THE Easiest Slime Recipe Ever

1 stick of Blu Tack + 2/3 pumps of hand soap = STRETCHY SLIME!!
No borax, no measuring, no mess, no fail slime!

Fluffy Slime

What you’ll need to make fluffy slime: 

  • Contact Lens/Saline solution
  • Craft Glue
  • Water
  • Shaving cream
  • Cornstarch
  • Foaming hand wash
  • Moisturiser (whatever you’ve got lying around)
  • 1 large cup
  • 1 large mixing bowl
  • Food colouring
  • Airtight containers to store

Another tip... toothpaste removes food colouring from hands.

How to make it

  1. In a bowl add 1/2 cup of glue, 1/2 cup shaving cream, 1/2 cup foaming handwash, 1 tsp cornstarch and a couple pumps of moisturiser. Stir.
  2. Add your food colouring. Stir again
  3. 1 squirt at a time add your contact lens/saline solution. You’ll need to experiment with how much you need for your perfect slime consistency, but we found around 3-4 squirts worked well.
  4. You’ll notice almost straight away that your mixture starts to become sticky and slimy. When it’s at the point you can take it out of the bowl with your hands start kneading and folding your slime until it’s nice and stretchy. Add more borax if it’s too sticky. Add a tiny bit of plain water if it’s too tough.

And there you have it! Fluffy, stretchy SLIME! Store it in an airtight container and it’ll last a while too.

The Rules of Slime

  • Slime is for outside, it’s messy and sticky but also lots of fun for OUTSIDE play!
  • It’s for “big kids” only to play with. These ingredients are safe to touch but NEVER to be eaten, so don’t leave slime around kids who are likely to put it in their mouth.
  • When you’ve finished playing with it store it in an air tight container.
  • Always wash your hands when you’ve finished playing

DreamBIG Children’s Festival is South Australia’s iconic biennial arts festival for schools and families that places its audience at the centre of fresh, inventive, imaginative and inspiring arts experiences.

More than 2 million South Australian children have participated in the festival since its inception in 1974 (as Come Out Festival), and it remains an intrinsic part of growing up in South Australia.

Adelaide Festival Centre has produced DreamBIG since 2015, and has embraced the responsibility that comes with putting on an event that holds such an important place in the hearts and souls of South Australians of every age.

DreamBIG Children’s Festival is divided into two program streams – the school’s program where children participate in events and performances through their school, and the general public program for families.

The next DreamBIG Children’s Festival will take place from 19 May – 29 May 2021
