Let’s get slimy!
Mix Your Monster Slime Ingredients
This monster slime recipe really couldn’t be any easier!
First, pour the whole bottle of glitter glue into a mixing bowl.
Don’t worry about making a mess.
I promise once you add the other ingredients, the bowl will clean up really easily!
Next, stir in the baking soda.
This adds a little more substance to the slime and makes it a bit more puffy feeling.
It also makes the slime slightly less translucent.

Finally, add in the eye contact solution.
Start with one Tablespoon.
If your slime is too sticky, add a few more drops in and stir again.
The eye contact solution is what reacts with the glue to decrease stickiness and create the stretchy substance you’re looking for.
Add Googly Eyes to Your Monster Slime
Next, separate the slime between the kids.
It’s time to add the eyeballs!
They had so much fun squishing in the eyeballs to make their monster slime.
My littlest chose the jumbo eyeballs, while the boys squished in tons of tiny ones.
