Slime is really pretty easy to make and can be a lot of fun. In a large bowl, combine the Elmer's glue, baking soda, contact solution, glitter (extra glitter makes it sparkly and fun), and food coloring then mix until combined. The slime will start to get firm and you will know that it is done. Scoop slime into your hands and place it into the mason jar or plastic container for storage. Kids love playing with slime so what a fun surprise from their holiday elf!
