|CREATE|cars glitter slime

I recently put out a cry for help on Instagram and asked my followers for advice on giving gifts to T's friends at birthday parties.

One of my lovely followers commented that I should make something and so my quest for a boy friendly slime began.

I've been experimenting with slime for a few weeks now, I've made about 6 batches, but only 3 have really turned out OK.  So far I've only made glitter slime, that's fine for small boys - right??? ;) the glue I use is from Sainsbury's.  I'll be starting to practice non-glitter slime soon, so that might be a different recipe.

I think I've almost perfected it now, here's the recipe I use after a few failed attempts.

1 120g bottle glitter glue
120g cold water
1/4 cup boiling water
1/2 tsp borax

First empty the glitter glue into a bowl, fill the glue bottle up with cold water and give it a good shake to get as much out as possible,

Dissolve the borax in the boiling water.

Tip the borax mixture into the glue mixture and stir.

I then add things to make it a bit more exciting.

To this slime I added some cars table confetti, as they were all plastic they are fine with the glue.  Watch out for paper ones though!

I like to add a little something extra as a surprise, in this case I added a tiny Lightning McQueen charm and some toy wheels.

This is my entry for #toddlerapprovedtuesday Becky at 3princessesand1dude is hosting this week, pop over to link up.


  1. Such a great idea. My daughter loves slime. But I've never seen any that have little toys in them. Super cute!

    1. Apologies for not responding earlier. Thanks so much for your comments. Sadly even the little toys don't seem to entice my little man to want to play with it!

  2. SLIME is always a hit! Love that you've hidden all the little extras in it :-)

    1. Sorry I've not replied yet! Appreciate you stopping by, thank you, I'm trying to encourage my little boy to play with slime but he's not keen at all.

  3. What a good idea. I shall keep this one up my sleeve till the next birthday! x

    1. I'd love to see your version if you do make it, please do tag me in ;) sorry I've taken so long to reply. Thank you for your comment.

  4. That is fab, my girls will love to do this!

  5. Hi Mrs Darling, hope you do give it a go with your little ladies. Apologies for the delay in responding.

    Thanks for stopping by.

  6. To begin the project mix the white glue with 1 cup of water using the small mixing bowl and add 1 teaspoon of the borax powder.slimthis.com/
