How about making some awesome Crunchy Slime!!? Adding colorful fishbowl beads to your slime adds a neat texture that’s super addicting to play with and also EASY to make. Oh and not to mention the crunchy sound it makes when squished…😍
You can add them to your favorite slime recipe, or try using this simple recipe I’m sharing today using contact solution.
DIY Crunchy Slime
- 6 oz. Elmer’s school glue
- 1/2 tablespoon baking soda
- 1 tablespoon water
- 1/2 tablespoon contact lens solution (Make sure it contains boric acid and sodium borate for it to work.) – We used this Blink brand
- 1/4 cup fishbowl beads
- food coloring and glitter, if desired
1.) Add glue to the bowl.
2.) Stir in baking soda, and then stir in water.
3.) Stir in contact solution. This is the activator, so you should notice it start to get firm right away.
4.) Add in fishbowl beads, food coloring and/or glitter. We added red beads, glitter, and food coloring to this batch for a fun Valentine’s Day theme!
5.) Keep kneading and kneading with your hands until slime forms! If it’s super sticky, you can add more contact solution as needed.
6.) Eventually you’ll get this wonderfully addictive crunchy slime to play with!
