Fun and Simple Spring DIY Homemade Slime
Let me let you in on a little secret…no matter how old I get, I’ll always have a love for slime. There’s just something about how stretchy it is, how colorful it can be and how it’s like your own instant stress reliever that has me falling in love with it over and over again.
And honestly, this homemade slime recipe is one that I love. Not only am I crazy over the Spring colors, but the tiny bubble texture pieces take it to a whole other level as well. It’s great for sensory awareness, too. I *might* have this sitting on my desk to play with and squeeze when I’m feeling as though it’s a little bit of a stressful day.
Slime is great for kids, but it can be a fun DIY project for adults, too!
Is homemade slime safe for kids?
The ingredients used in this slime should be fine for kids to help make. Just remind them to never put the slime in their mouth or any other the ingredients, either. It’s always recommended that any time a craft is being created, adult supervision is needed.
What makes this one of the easiest slime recipes to create?
Due to the fact this recipe only needs 4 ingredients, it can’t get much more simple than this! You might even have them all sitting and ready for you in your cabinet at home! (and when that means that you don’t have to run out to the store and pick up anything else, 100% awesome.)

How to make homemade slime
The cool part about making slime is that it literally takes no time to do. All you need are a few simple ingredients, a little bit of patience and a good storage container so it doesn’t dry out.
Ingredients to make DIY slime
- 1 bottle of glitter glue (you can choose any color you want for this)
- 1 tablespoon of contact lens solution
- One teaspoon of baking soda
- 1/2 cup clear bean bag filler or foam balls (found in the sewing section of most craft stores – just ask, they’ll know!)
How to make this slime recipe with contact solution
Grab your bottle of glitter glue and dump the contents into a large bowl.
Next, add in your contact solution and your baking soda.
Once done adding those items, dump in your bean bag filler pieces or your foam bowls, depending on what items you went will.
Then, it’s time to stir really, really well! Keep stirring until it starts to form into what resembles slime, and them take and start kneading with your hands.
Once it is holding together well and no longer sticking, it’s time to enjoy!
