This Taffimatter Glitter Slime recipe is great to make at home!
Author: Fun With Mama
1/2 cup of clear glue
1/2 cup of water
A little bit more than 1/4 cup of Staflo or liquid starch. (You can substitute this for saline solution.)
Bowl to mix
Spoon to mix
Tray to minimize the mess
Yellow Food coloring (or whichever color you plan to make our slime)
Add in your clear glue, water food coloring.
Then add in your glitter. Use as much as you want. Then mix it.
Now start adding your Staflo in slowly... If you add too much your slime becomes too hard and unusable. Slime is definitely a science.. sometimes your slime experiment works, other times it doesn't. That's what's so great about it... your child has to figure out how to put it together. If something needs to be added, they can try to troubleshoot it.
At this point, we had used 1/4 cup of Staflo. This is the time you should pick it up and start kneading it with your hands. Slime HAS to be kneaded... it helps it become less sticky. If your hands are colder, the less sticky it will be.
It was still too sticky so we added about 1/8 cup more.
We then left it to set a bit (for a few hours)...Then it was all ready!
