About this deal

Slime is pleasantly cool to the touch and is wondrous and exciting, without being too gross or making an actual mess. We recommend using Elmer’s clear glue to make this mermaid slime, because it works consistently and gives good results. I just transferred all of my recipes from one recipe card plugin to another and the other didn’t have numbered steps so I think there was just a space that this card interpreted this way. However, keep in mind that although adding more activator (saline solution) reduces the stickiness, and it will eventually create a stiffer slime.

While this slime is NOT edible I do have an edible Nutella Slime that you could add a few mermaid toys too if needed. We did test trying to make a mermaid slime with sequins and because the sequins are bigger, thicker, and less smooth the feel of the slime is not as smooth as this slime.My son is particularly fond of the ocean and the beach and he has a great friend who is also fond of mermaids. Now slowly add the baking soda/contact solution/water mixture to slime mixture, 1 teaspoon at a time. Yes - The slime is formed by a chemical reaction between the polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) in the glue and the borate ion from the boric acid in the contact lens solution. For my kids who will get upset if the slime sticks to them a bit (it comes off very easily if you rub your hands), I just wet down their hands before they play and keep some water ready to keep their hands moist, which stops the slime from sticking. This is exactly how much you will need with the Target Sensitive Eyes brand, but other brands may differ slightly!

Different brands may contain different amounts of boric acid, so you may need to adjust the amount of activator in your slime if you use a different brand. She loves all things ocean so when she asked if we could make “Mermaid Slime”, I knew we had to give it a try.Tinkering with the baking soda and saline amounts will change the consistency of the slime to thinner or thicker.

I’ve noticed that clear glue and school glue need different amounts, but it also is affected by humidity – I need more starch in the summer than in the winter. You will find everything you ever wanted to know about making homemade slime right here, and if you have questions, just ask me! But we like to caution that adding in too much contact lens solution will make the slime become harder and not as stretchy to play with.
