The girls and I recently made some super awesome glow-in-the-dark slime that was a super mess, but totally fun! It’s the second time we’ve made the glow-in-the-dark slime, which is seriously cool, but does require clean-up! It might also be good ideas to toss the kids clothing in the washer when they are finished just to be safe! I don’t know how kids do it, but they find things that I didn’t even know we had when we are doing stuff like this, lol.
I love having fun with the kids and doing messy, but oh so fun crafting projects, but I do admit cleanup isn’t always my favorite thing and the last thing I want to do is change before heading out the door or staying in! We did the slime craft right before my husband came home to pick me up so we could head out for a movie night. I wasn’t wearing a little black dress or anything, but I was wearing my favorite pair of blue jeans and favorite top.
I was comfortable and ready for a movie night with my husband, but like most moms I had to clean up our mess and toss in a load of laundry before heading out. The last thing I wanted to do was change, and thankfully Clorox has stepped things up to strengthen our relationship.
If you leave the glow-in-the-dark slime in a mason jar overnight and let a little air get to it, the consistency it changes too is pretty awesome. You can mold it, it’s less messy than slime, and it’s even bouncy. Totally, cool and it only changes to that consistency if you use the clear Elmer’s glue. Just a tip, because the kids and I both like the slime better after it’s gotten a little air. Between you and I, it’s less messy too! Yepie!
Easy Homemade Glow-in-the-Dark Slime Recipe
The recipe for glow-in-the-dark slime fills up a 32-ounce mason jar. If you want to make less, just cut the recipe in half.
- 4 Bottles of Clear School Glue
- 2 Cups of Liquid Starch
- 2 tablespoons of acrylic glow in the dark paint
- 1 large Ziploc bag
How to make these easy homemade glow-in-the-dark slime recipe:
- Combine glue, starch, and paint into Ziploc bag and work together until it’s a slimy, gooey mess.
- You may want to add more glow in the dark paint. If you choose to do so, you’ll want to add it as soon as possible because once the slime begins to set up it’s harder to mix everything together.
I can honestly say I don’t get all dolled up every single day, but I do clean something multiple times a day. Since I’m honest, I guess I can tell you that I don’t change before cleaning something up either, even if I am wearing my favorite dress. I also don’t hesitate to toss in that last load of laundry before my husband, and I head off for our date night. I know, I shouldn’t, but it’s so easy just to get home and toss it to dry and not stress doing it the following day. I’m full of motherly confessions, lol.
I don’t know about you but I love and seriously don’t know what I would do without bleach, mainly because they keep on stepping up their game and making my life as a busy mother of four easier and easier. Just like any relationship, it can be complicated, and there comes a point when you have to change with the times and be supportive.
