DIY Glittery Red Slime using Borax

Playful Life with Kids DIY Glittery Red Slime using Borax 1

And yes, we finally gave into the slime madness and created our own DIY Glittery Red Slime! Last year, around December my friend gave me some Borax. Borax is used in many projects and one of these is a SLIME. So during the Christmas break, we made our very own glittery slime using borax.


1 pack of Elmer’s Glittery Red Glue

1 teaspoon borax

warm water


Procedure in DIY Glittery Red Slime using Borax

1. Dissolve 1 teaspoon of Borax in half cup of warm water

2. Pour the Elmer’s glittery red glue into a container.

3. Mix the borax solution into the glue.

4.Mix until you get the slime-y consistency that you want.

5. Knead and knead the Glittery Red Slime so it would lose some of its wet feel.

6. Enjoy your DIY Glittery Red Slime!

Caution: Avoid getting it on textile as the borax makes it hard to clean up after.
