Could you get much more fun than slime, glow-in-the-dark no less?

Two weeks ago when my nieces were over, we put this together and had lots of fun doing it!  Such a cool, inexpensive idea and  –  the best part is… they loved it!  I had been looking at this project for a little while and after having made glow-in-the-dark jellyfish the previous week, I decided to use some leftover paint from that to make the slime. At first I was a bit apprehensive as to whether or not this project would be easy, but once you have everything together you really couldn’t get much easier.

Here are the supplies that are needed:

Borax

Water

 Glue

• Glow-in-the-dark paint

• Neon Food Coloring 

• Popsicle sticks

• Mixing bowls

Bottle for mixing borax/water solution

Those are the supplies that were originally called for, but I didn’t have some of them (like clear glue or neon food coloring), so here is what I used:

 Borax

•Water 

• Regular craft glue

2 different colors of glow-in-the-dark paint

Paper straws (for stirring)

• Spray bottle (for the water/borax solution)

• Candy cups (for mixing bowls)

Using these as opposed to the original supplies worked out just fine and if you have colored glow-in-the-dark paint like I did, then you can eliminate the food coloring!

Making this was so easy and fun, not to mention taking it into a dark room and watching it glow…

Enjoy!
