Do your kids love making slime? My sure do. We made Under the Sea Ocean Slime with glitter school glue and tiny ocean sea animals. This post contains affiliate links.
I have a bit of a confession. I think I have as much fun with slime as my kids do. I don’t know what it is, but it’s very relaxing to play with it, squishing it between your fingers and just letting it run through them.
Molly and I have been waiting to do this one for awhile. We decided to make an ocean of slime with blue glitter glue. We wanted a lot of slime, so we used two bottles.
Then, after the slime was set, we add a bunch of sea life. I had this tiny little packet of tiny animals, but we wanted more, so we broke out some sea life from our Light Up Aquarium Mason Jars and added them into the slime as well.
These are very similar or the exact same to the animals we used.
For this recipe, I used liquid starch. Sometimes I use Borax and sometimes liquid starch. I find the liquid starch method is sometimes stickier, but it’s stretchier, too.
Supplies needed to make Under the Sea Ocean Slime
- TWO 5 ounce bottles of glitter glue
- 10 oz water
- 1 cup liquid starch
- a dozen small plastic sea creatures
How to make Under the Sea Ocean Slime
In a large bowl pour out both glue bottles.
Fill each glue bottles up with warm water, give it a good shake, and pour into the bowl.
Add the liquid starch by adding half the amount. Then stirring, and slowly adding the rest in as the glue turns into slime.
Then pull the slime up and knead it in your hands to remove excess water.
Lay the slime onto a plastic or silicone mat or cutting board and fold in the sea life creatures.
Store in a plastic ziplock bag for storage.
I think I see Nemo hiding in our slime! My favorites were the stingrays. Molly was always hunting for those evil sharks.
