How To Make Your Easter Slime Eggs


What you will need

- 1 cup PVA glue

- 1 tsp of Baking Soda

- Food colouring and glitter

- 1 tablespoon of eye wash solution (that contains Boric Acid)

- Mixing Bowl and spoon

- Cookie shape cutters

- Fillable Easter egg containers


Getting started

1 - Mix the PVA with the Baking Soda.

2 - Add 2 or 3 drops of food colouring and mix further.

3 - Keep stirring and mixing until the glue has changed colour completely.


Next Steps

4 - Now add the glitter - this can be any colour. Mix this in further.

5 - Now add the eye solution and keep stirring. The mixture will become harder to stir and start to     come away from the sides of the bowl.

6 - Take out the mixture and start to knead it between your hands. If it is still very sticky, add a small amount of eye solution again. Keep kneading and adding tiny amounts more if still very sticky.


And Finally...

7 - You will know the slime is ready when it no longer sticks to your hands and only sticks to itself. 

8 - You can store your slime in your eggs and it will stay slimy for up to a month.
