How to Make Confetti Slime
- Combine 4 oz. of glue, 2 oz. of cold water, and 1 tablespoon of contact lens solution into a mixing bowl. Mix this slowly for about a minute.
- In a separate cup or bowl, mix 4 oz. of warm water with 1 teaspoon of baking soda. Stir the slime until the baking soda is dissolved.
- Now pour the baking soda mix into your glue mixture. Stir very gently for about a minute with a craft stick.
4. The slime will now be stretchy. Let this sit for 5 to 10 minutes to allow the ingredients to settle and gel together.
5. Test your slime. Knead the slime to activate it and if it is too watery, be sure to add a few extra drops of contact lens solution. Gently knead and watch the slime thicken over time.
6. Finally add the confetti. This is the fun part, the colorful confetti will look fantastic in your clear slime and will be such fun.
