Colour Slime Recipe

Make colourful slime without the fuss using Elmer's Colour Glues that come in vibrant, opaque colours and gem-like, translucent hues! Simply mix with a few common household ingredients. It’s super easy and child-friendly!

Supplies Needed

  • 147 ml Elmer’s Colour Glue
  • ½ tbsp of baking soda
  • 1 tbsp of contact lens solution


  1. Pour out entire contents of the 147 ml Elmer's Colour Glue into a bowl.

  2. Add ½ tbsp of baking soda and mix thoroughly.

  3. Add 1 tbsp of contact lens solution. Mix until mixture gets harder to mix and slime begins to form.

  4. Take the slime out and begin kneading with both of your hands.

  5. If it's too sticky, add ¼ tbsp contact lens solution and knead. Keep adding ¼ tbsp contact lens solution until desired consistency.

*Adult supervision is required; this project is not appropriate for children under the age of 3 years. Thoroughly wash your hands before and after making and playing with slime. Warning: If large quantities of contact lens solution are accidentally ingested (greater than a tablespoon), seek medical attention immediately.

*Some contact solution brands work better than others, check out our Slime Tips section for all the details
