Black Glitter Slime Recipe:
- 1 (6 oz.) bottle black glitter glue
- ¼ cup warm water
- ½ tsp. baking soda
- 1½ Tbsp. contact lens solution that contains boric acid
- 1 Tbsp glitter (if you want a more glittery slime)
- optional: pumpkin confetti
- Empty the black glitter glue into a medium sized bowl.
- Add 1/4 cup warm water to the empty glue bottle and seal with the lid. Shake well to combine the remaining glue with the water.
- Pour into the bowl with the glue and stir to combine.
- Add the baking soda to the glue and stir to mix thoroughly.
- If you are adding extra glitter or confetti, stir them into the glue mixture at this point.
- Add contact lens solution to the glue mixture and stir well.
- Remove the slime from the bowl allowing any excess liquid to remain in the bowl. The slime will be sticky. Begin to play with the slime, kneading it as if it were bread dough, to bring the slime together. The slime is ready when it is no longer sticky.
Note: Glitter glue requires more contact lens solution than making slime with regular clear or white glue. Add the contact lens solution slowly, mixing between additions, and add only enough to bring the glue together into a soft ball.
Slime should be stored in an airtight container or resealable bag when not being played with.

- To make this black slime more appropriate for Hallowe’en, you can add different types of Hallowe’en confetti.
