  4. Dip your fingers in a little of the contact solution (this will help it not stick to your hands as much) and knead the slime until it fully forms. If it’s still a tad too sticky, add a tiny bit (a teaspoon at a time) more contact lens solution and knead again.

This slime is so sparkly your kids won’t want to put it down! 

You can see I didn’t add any measurements for the glitter since you can put in as little or as much as you want. I ended up using 5 different colored glitters in pink, purplish pink, teal, green, blue and a hint of silver that are all included in this 30 set glitter kit

Of course if you want to keep it super simple, you can use Elmer’s glitter glue in pink and blue and just skip the added glitter altogether. We prefer adding our own glitter so we can make it exactly how we want it!

Parents or another adult should always make the slime. This type of slime should not be used with children 3 and younger. 

If your child has sensitive skin use gloves while playing with the slime or watch them to be sure the slime isn’t irritating to the skin.
