Elmer's Glow in the Dark Glue
Nothing reminds me of back to school more than Elmer's school glue. I don't know if it's the bottle itself or the smell of the glue. Either way it's a sure sign school is on it's way! This year it's a sign of fun in our house though. We were lucky enough to get a few bottles of their Glow in the Dark glue to have a little last minute summer fun to make some glow in the dark slime.
Just check out how cool the glue looks after you put it under a light for a few minutes! Here's a cool recipe right off the Elmer's website if you want to try out some slime time fun for yourself.
Elmer's Recipe for Glow in the Dark Slime
5 oz Elmer’s Glow in the Dark Glue
½ tbsp of baking soda
1 tbsp of contact lens solution
1. Pour out entire contents of the 5 fl oz Elmer's Glow in the Dark Glue into a bowl.
2. Add ½ tbsp of baking soda and mix thoroughly.
3. Add 1 tbsp of contact lens solution. Mix until mixture gets harder to mix and slime begins to form.
4. Take the slime out and begin kneading with both of your hands.
5. If it's too sticky, add ¼ tbsp contact lens solution and knead. Keep adding ¼ tbsp contact lens solution until desired consistency.
*Adult supervision is required; this project is not appropriate for children under the age of 3 years. Thoroughly wash your hands before and after making and playing with slime. Warning: If large quantities of contact lens solution are accidentally ingested (greater than a tablespoon), get medical attention immediately.
PS: And don't forget to pick up some regular Elmer's School Glue while you're out for your kiddos back to school list too! Happy school shopping :-)
