Have some awesomely good fun with our eyeball glitter slime recipe! So simple to use with UK friendly ingredients plus some hilarious googly eyes for a monster themed playtime!
We have only recently discovered how easy it is to make slime using UK ingredients and now have it as a firm playtime favourite! It is popular with both my littlies and my two big girls too, who enjoy making and playing with it when friends come to play. This is probably thanks to the YouTube phenomenon of slime making these days!
I found some awesome eyeball erasers in Poundland (my favourite treasure trove for play and learning resources!) and thought we just had to make something monster related with them!
I found an online source for Elmer’s Glitter Glue recently and am in love with how it makes the most sparkly, translucent glitter slime when used in our go-to recipe.

Tip the bottle of Elmer’s glue into a clean and dry bowl. We found it was less than a cup so had to slightly reduce the other measurements from our favourite 2 minute slime recipe.
Now add just under a teaspoon of bicarb (baking soda) and then mix it using a spoon.
To this add the contact lens solution a small squirt at a time, mixing as you go (up to 2 tablespoons)
When it reaches a stretchy consistency and the slime is coming together into a glob then be brave and take it out of the bowl and start to knead it quickly between your hands. At first it is so sticky but within 10-20 seconds it sticks only to itself and has become smooth, stretchy and fabulous!
At this point add in the eyeballs (or any other creepy crawly creatures for a variation!) and start to play!
I reckon this would be awesome with plastic bugs or snakes too.
My kids (like most I imagine) thought it was hilariously good fun to pretend their eyeballs were coming out or worse, being sneezed out of their noses! Ha! So this was copied, repeated and laughed over until they were in stitches.
They also loved stretching it as long as they possibly could then flicking it around to make loops within loops, ending up with great big coils of green, snot-like slime piles!
It makes just enough to fit inside a Bon Maman jam jar with a lid (my favourite for collecting craft materials to store in the cupboard!) I was thinking how fun it would be to either give as a gift, add as a stocking filler, use as party favours or even sell at the school craft stall! Kids, of course, love the disgusting aspect of this green gunky goo the most of all!
I think we may make a spider version next using our creepy plastic spiders we used for lots of activities last year!
