Step-by-Step Guide on How to Make Ocean Slime with Your Kids:
Empty the glue into a large bowl.
Fill the empty glue bottle about ⅓ full with warm water (about ¼ cup) and seal with the lid. Shake well to combine the remaining glue with the water. Pour into bowl with glue and stir to combine.
Add the baking soda to the glue and stir to mix thoroughly.
If you are adding food coloring, glitter, or confetti, stir the glitter into the glue mixture. Add contact lens solution to the glue mixture and stir well.
(Note: Regular glue will require less contact lens solution than glitter glue. Add the contact lens solution slowly, mixing between additions, and add only enough to bring the glue together into a soft ball.)
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 you would bread dough, to bring the slime together. The slime is ready when no longer sticky.
Best if stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator when not in use.
In addition to making Ocean Slime, this fun ocean playdough activity can be used to sculpt different ocean creatures or to create an underwater scene with coral reefs, rocks, and seaweed. This can help children learn about different animals that live in the ocean and can encourage children to use their imagination while learning about different elements of the ocean environment.
