Step 1: Gather Listed Materials

Step 2: Add Glue to Bowl

Empty One Bottle of Elmer’s Glitter Glue Into your Bowl

Step 3: Add Baking Soda and Mix

Add ½ teaspoon of baking soda into the bowl and mix thoroughly

Step 4: Add Contact Solution and Mix

Add ½ tablespoon of contact solution to bowl and mix together

Step 5: Add Even More Contact Solution

Add another ½ tablespoon of contact solution to the bowl and mix thoroughly again

Step 6:

Once ingredients are mixed in take slime out of bowl and kneed the slime. Slime should be very sticky at this point but this is normal, keep kneading for about 5-10 minutes.

*Note: If your slime becomes too sticky add another ½ tablespoon of contact solution

Step 7: Put Slime Back in Bowl

Once slime is kneaded place back into the bowl you’ve already used

Step 8: Add Foam Beads

Slowly add foam beads to the slime and mix the two together. Use caution when adding beads because these beads can easily roll away

Step 9: Add Even More Beads

You can now add more foam beads by flattening the slime a bit and adding beads to the center of the mix and folding slime over the beads

Step 10: Enjoy Your Slime!

Once beads and slime are mixed you are finished! Enjoy your unicorn slime!

*Pro tip: To make your Unicorn Floam Slime last longer store it in plastic tupperware
