Ingredients for Slime

Supplies for Making Slime

  • 2 Plastic Containers for mixing
  • 1 Plastic Container for storing


In a plastic container, pour in 1 cup of hot water and stir in ⅓ tsp. of Borax.

In a separate plastic container, pour the entire bottle of glue in and ¼ cup room temperature water. Mix together gently.

Add the glitter to your glue mixture container.

Next, add the gold sequins to the glitter and glue mixture.

Add food coloring to get the perfect honey color. Use only a tiny amount of each color and add more as needed.

We put a knife in the gel food coloring and only used the amount that stuck to the knife. So don’t put in too much all at once!

Add a bit of gold and brown until you see the color that you’d like. It doesn’t need to be equal parts of each color. Mix and match with amounts until you are happy.

Next add bees to the glue mixture.

Pour the container of the glue mixture into the water and borax solution.

Let the honey slime sit for 30 seconds. You will see it instantly start to glob up and get thick.

Rinse out your glue mixture container while the honey slime is sitting for 30 seconds. Dry with a paper towel.

Pull out the honey slime mixture from the container and add it to the dried plastic container. It will be sticky! Knead the honey slime for a few minutes. If you need to firm it up, add a touch of the remaining borax and water mixture.

Store in an airtight container.
