Make Your Activator

Add 1 tsp of borax powder (provided) to 1 measured cup of HOT or BOILING water. Stir until dissolved.



Please gather:
  • Bowl
  • Spoon or Spatula
  • Measuring Spoon (1 teaspoon!)
  • Lotion (any kind!)
  • Everything in your kit
  • Step 1: Make your activator (Video included).

    Step 2: Grab a mixing bowl, spoon or spatula, a teaspoon measuring spoon, and the activator you made. 

    Step 3: Pour your bottle of glue into your empty bowl. Try to get as much glue out as possible.

    Step 4: (Optional) Add 2-3 drops of scent.

    Step 5: (Optional) Add 2-3 drops of colorant. 

    Step 6: Stir together for an even base. Make sure you mix it until it’s all perfectly even and blended. 

    Step 7: Add 1 teaspoon of activator.

    Step 8: Mix THOROUGHLY! It takes a lot of stirring to get the activator completely mixed with the glue. It may feel strand-like and stringy. That’s normal. Keep mixing, and don’t give up!

    Step 9: Add snow fizz powder; the more you add, the more sizzly your slime will be. We recommend starting with ⅛ of a cup, as you can always add more later. You can also add about ⅛ of a cup of Bingsu beads at this point (this is optional and will make your slime super crunchy). Mix thoroughly.

    Step 10: Add another teaspoon of activator and then mix again. At this point, the slime may look stringy and/or clumpy; that's okay! Trust the process and keep stirring! It may feel like it takes a long time to fully mix the activator and glue together. It actually does - a good 2 minutes of non-stop mixing.

    Step 11: Add a third teaspoon of activator and then mix thoroughly. Yes, there is a LOT of mixing involved. We don’t add all the activator at once because it will blend better and create a more optimal slime if you go bit by bit.

    Step 12: Time for the 1 finger test! Slowly smush one finger into your slime, and then lift it out. Then what? See the next step.

    Step 13: If it sticks to you, add another 1/2 teaspoon of activator and mix, mix, mix. If it doesn’t stick to you, move on to step 15!

    Step 14: Mix again. Continue adding activator and stirring until the slime is no longer sticky.

    Step 15: Add some activator to your hands and then mix the rest by hand, really blending it in as if you’re massaging dough.

    Note: if your slime feels hard at this point, add some lotion one squirt at a time. Mix thoroughly between drops; you may only need one! (Only do this if your slime is tough!)

    Step 16: (Optional) Add some more bingsu beads and bury your dinosaur so the dig can begin!
