All you need to try this really fun st patrick’s day activity are a few simple materials you may even already have on hand at home:

  • 1 bottle of Elmer’s Washable Clear Glue (5 oz/147 ml)
  • 1/2 cup clear school glue
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 teaspoon Borax (found in the laundry aisle)
  • green food coloring
  • green and/or gold glitter

In a bowl combine  1/2 cup clear school glue and 1/2 cup water. If you want a bigger batch just use more; you need equal parts of water and glue. Mix in as much gold glitter or green sequins as you like – the more the better!

In a sepearte bowl mix 1/2 teaspoon of borax into 1/2 cup warm water until combined.  The hotter the water, the faster the Borax will dissolve; this makes the activator.  Slowly add the activator to the glue-glitter mixture. We added 1 Tablespoon at a time until we reached desired consistency. Unlike white glue slime, if you add too much activator to clear slime, it won’t be stretchy.
