Making slime is a super fun sensory activity for kids, even older kids and parents can enjoy playing with the big hunk of goo that comes out of mixing a couple of simple ingredients together.
Materials Needed to Make Jurassic Dinosaur Homemade Slime:
- 6 oz. Bottle of Elmer’s Washable Glitter Glue
- 6 oz. Purex Sta-Flo Liquid Starch
- 1 Bottle of Elmer’s Washable Clear Glue (optional)
- Measuring cup
- Spoon (optional)
**Note: If you don’t use the Elmer’s brand glitter glue/clear glue or the Purex brand liquid starch, your results may differ. I found everything I needed at Walmart and the liquid starch was located in the laundry detergent aisle.
Have your child complete the following steps:
Step 1: Pour the bottle of Elmer’s Glitter Glue into the bowl.
Step 2: Pour 6 oz. (3/4 cup) of Sta-Flo Liquid Starch on top of the glue.
Step 3: Mix like crazy. But not too crazy or you will get goo all over the place. Little hands can mix (it’s sensory activity after all) or use a spoon to mix.
Step 4: Mix, knead, mix, knead, until a good consistency is found. If your slime is still not coming together after a long time of mixing then add either more glue (adding a little clear works fine) or more liquid starch.
Troubleshooting: If the mixture is stringy and sticking to your hands then add more liquid starch. If the mixture is too stringy and slippery than add a little more glue (we added clear glue).
Step 5: Add dinos and play!
