CLEAR SLIME recipe
Clear slime is amazing to look through. Can you imagine all the adorable and silly faces your child will make while looking through the slime?
Here is how you can make the simple clear glue slime recipe.
Add four ounces of clear slime to a bowl. Add 4 ounces of water and stir, very gently.
The key to this slime is going slowly, so you don’t create air bubbles in the slime, which makes it harder to see through.
Warm one cup of water and add a teaspoon of borax powder. Stir until the powder is dissolved.
Slowly pour the borax water into the glue mixture.
Carefully stir the glue to avoid creating air bubbles.
Within a few seconds, clear slime will start to form.
Once the slime forms, carefully remove it from the remaining liquid.
The more you squeeze the slime, the cloudier it will get, so to keep the slime clear, treat it gently.
Stretch and play with the slime.
My kids liked testing the opacity of the clear slime by placing small toys behind it to see how much detail remained.
Surprisingly, at the right angle, the slime acted like a magnifying glass! I hope your child enjoyed learning how to make clear slime.
