Perfect for summer play, #SharkWeek or any day of the year – whip up this 3-ingredient DIY Shark Slime that is non-toxic, safe and easy enough for your kids to make!
This year is no exception. We’ve been brainstorming fun ideas in preparation for Shark Week next month and my boys came up with this fun and easy DIY Shark Slime. SO EASY that the kids can make it themselves! And with just 3 non-toxic ingredients, you’ll be a-ok with letting them. So we headed to our local Michaels Stores and got the glue and sharks we needed for the project, thankfully mom already had baking soda and contact lens solution on hand!
- 6 ounces blue glitter glue (we used this one)
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 1/2 tablespoon contact lens solution (we used this one)
- Toy sharks (we used this one)
And the steps:
Simply squeeze all the glue out into a small bowl. Add in your baking soda until mixed thoroughly. Then add your contact lens solution and stir until the mixture no longer moves.
This is such a fun summertime activity! Totally doing this with my kids soon!
