Making slime, goo, goop, gak-whatever you call it-is so easy and fun. Playing with slime is also totally addictive. Speaking of addictive, I’m totally addicted to the Moana Soundtrack. Obviously some DIY Tamatoa Shiny Slime was needed. It’s beautiful, baby.
To make your own shiny slime, you’ll need:
- Clear Glue
- Jumbo Gold Glitter
Add 1/4 cup water to two small bowls. Add 1/4 cup of clear glue to one bowl of water and mix well. Add jumbo gold glitter to glue and water mixture. Add 1/4 teaspoon of borax to the other bowl of water and mix until it’s dissolved.
Slowly add the borax mixture to the glue mixture. It will be goopy and wet at first, but the more you stir the closer you’ll get to the final slime texture.
Told you it was easy! It sparkles like a wealthy woman’s neck…
You’ll want to store your slime in an airtight container or bag when you’re not playing with it. I put mine in some 5oz plastic snack cups that I already had on hand. I also printed out a Tamatoa label and glued it to the lid with a glue dot runner.
Slime makes a fun Valentine’s Day gift, so I made you a Shiny Valentine printable, too.
Grab the image you want and size it to fit the container you’re using. If you have cups with a 2.5″ lid, grab my printable and you’ll be set.
