I might age myself here, but when I was in 5th grade and there was this boy named Devin and he lived in our neighborhood. We were great friends and he was cute. I heard rumors that he ‘liked liked’ me. I thought he was cute and I waited patiently. For my birthday one year, his mom drove him over to me because he brought be flowers. As if that wasn’t sweet enough, he also brought be a VHS copy of Beauty and the Beast. Looking back, I wish that I would have told him that I liked him too. He made it obvious enough without having to fully admit it (we were friends!) and we continued our friendship for several years. I retrospect, he probably would have made a pretty awesome first boyfriend. I can’t remember my first boyfriend ever bringing me flowers, let alone Disney movies! But Devin did. He knew…even when kids were trying so hard to be too cool for kid stuff, I had Disney in my blood. He knew that Beauty and The Beast was my favorite. And he thought it was cool.
Flash forward (many, many) years and when I found out that Disney was coming out with a live action version of Beauty and The Beast, I may have freaked out a little bit. Getting press passes to see it early was one of the highlights of the year. My son
may have been was totally embarrassed in the theater when I sang along (quietly I swear) with all of the songs. He was mortified when I started crying.
I can’t help it. The Beast. He loved her SO much that he was willing to let her go, even though he knew that meant that he and all of his friends would never break the spell.
Y’all. He was willing to sacrifice himself. That’s love.
Anyway, you aren’t here for my love obsession with Beauty and The Beast. You are here for this awesome gold slime. There are only a few things you need to make this, which is awesome. I’m all for easy projects.
Elmer’s has a new gold glitter glue that is the perfect color to mimic Belle’s gold ballgown. You will also need resin roses. You can find them at your craft store and while I paid a little less (not a whole lot though), I only got 2 red roses. Amazon has a pack that gives you 15! So if you want to add more than just one to your slime or you are making several batches, you may want to order it there.
And just a note about the saline solution: This has been the best one that we have used! It’s cheaper at Walmart, but you can also order it online.
Supplies for Beauty & The Beast Slime
- 1 airtight container
- 1 5 oz bottle of Elmer’s Gold Glue
- ½ cup water
- ½ tsp baking soda
- 1 tbsp contact solution
- Red Resin Rose
- Small bowl
In a container, empty a bottle of Elmer’s Gold Glitter Glue. We only use Elmer’s glue for our slimes. I think that they definitely work the best. However, the glitter glues can be slightly tricky as they are thicker than normal glue. After I squeeze the glue out, I usually get a pair of sharp scissors and cut the bottle in half to scrape out all of the glue inside. This is by far the easiest way to get it all!
Pour in half a cup of water into the glue. Completely stir it all around. The glue will look like it is breaking down and you might get nervous that it is a slime fail, but it isn’t! I promise! Just keep stirring!
When it is mixed well with the water add ½ tsp baking soda and stir.
(No your eyes didn’t play a trick on you - this is our silver glitter glue slime! But it’s the same process, I just didn’t have a photo of the last step!)
Add 1 tbsp of contact solution to the slime. It will instantly begin to form. It will be STICKY! Don’t panic! Knead the slime until it is no longer sticky.
Add the rose. And store in an air tight container when you are done.
This is a really great project to do with the kids while you watch the movie. Or if you are having a Beauty and the Beast party it makes a fun activity or party favor!
Elmer’s specialty glues are really awesome and we use them A LOT! They have glitter glues in just about every color you can think of. But not just glitter glues, they also have really awesome glow in the dark glues! (That also glow in different colors.) And you can’t go wrong with just their regular glues.
