If you have kids, you know how popular slime is! All three of my kids LOVE to make slime. Did you know that there a million ways to make slime, too? Well, maybe not a million…but a lot! (This ocean slime is another one of my favorites!)

There’s fluffy slime, slime with baking soda, slime with borax, slime without borax, slime with pudding (YES, this is a thing), and many more! Today I’m sharing a SUPER EASY slime recipe that you won’t have any trouble at all making!

How-To Make Slime


This Slime Recipe is so easy to make! You only need 3 ingredients!

Slime Ingredients

  • glue (we used clear glue but you can use clear or white)
  • borax
  • water

That’s it! We like to make our slime all pretty and add lots of glitter, but that’s optional. I know that some people would rather not have the glitter in their house. BUT if you do it correctly, you won’t have glitter on your hands, tables, and floors. It stays right in the slime with this recipe. Just follow along! There’s no need to buy slime at the store when you can make it right at home!

Make Easy Slime At Home!

  1. First, take 1 cup of glue and add it to a larger bowl.
  2. Sprinkle glitter right over the top of the glue. I used about a tablespoon here.
  3. Mix well.
  4. Next mix 1 cup of warm water with 1 tablespoon of borax to add to the glue mixture.
  5. Add a tablespoon of the borax/water mixture to the glue and mix well after each addition. It usually takes about 4 tablespoons. You just mix and pour. Mix and pour.
  6. Mix until the slime isn’t sticky anymore. Continue to knead and mix.
  7. When you’re done playing with your slime, add it to a container and cover well. Glad® Press’n Seal® is PERFECT for this!
