DIY Honey Slime
Our house for the past year or so has been a slime factory. Our 9 year old has even started her own YouTube channel for slime. I’ve learned that glue, glitter and well, slime, is inevitably going to cover our kitchen. When in Rome you know? So now, I have joined the slime making crew. Don’t tell anyone, but I actually like to make it. (I still don’t like to clean it though!) My favorite part of creating slime is coming up with new and creative ideas to inspire our slime.
This honey slime recipe is one of my favorites actually. It looks like real honey! Well, except that it has sequins and glitter and cute bumble bees on it.
Do you want the honey slime recipe? Luckily, we are sharing it! Because seriously, this slime is too cute not to share with everyone! (PS…Do you love slime? Hope so, because we have lots of new slime recipes that we will be posting soon. Thanks spring break!)
What You Will Need For The DIY Honey Slime Recipe:
- 1 Cup Hot Water
- 1/3 tsp Borax
- 1 5 oz Clear Elmer’s Glue
- 1/4 Cup Room Temperature Water
- Food Coloring – I used gel food coloring (I like the different color options it gives me and the awesome color it provides!) The colors that I used were golden yellow and brown.
- Gold Sequins
- Extra fine glitter – I used a mix of two glitters. One was a light golden tan and one was more of a gold.
- Bee Button Embellishments
- 2 Containers for mixing
- 1 Container for storing
DIY Honey Slime Recipe
In a plastic container, pour 1 cup of hot water and stir in ⅓ tsp of Borax.
In a second plastic container, mix ¼ cup water and pour an entire bottle of glue. Mix together gently.
Add in your mix ins! Add the glitter to your glue mixture.
If you want to add some food coloring to get the perfect honey color, add it in now. I like the gel food coloring. It only takes a tiny bit. I literally stick a knife in and whatever sticks is what I add. A little will go a long way! I used a golden yellow and a brown.Pour in some gold sequins. I think the sequins resemble a bit of a honey comb shape!
Once the glue mixture is the color you want, add your bees.
Pour the container of the glue mixture into the water and borax solution.
Let it sit for 30 seconds. You will see it instantly start to glob up. I use this time to rinse out my first container.
Reach in and pull out the slime mixture and put it back into your empty container. It will be sticky right now – that’s ok.
Knead it for a few minutes.
If you need to firm it up, just add a touch of the remaining borax and water mixture.
Store in an airtight container.
Isn’t this so pretty? Perfect for parties, for an activity to go with a bee unit for a classroom or just because you have a slime aficionado.
