Under the Sea Slime

Slime has become increasingly popular in the last year. If you have kids or are around kids, you've probably been forced to make several batches of slime or watch YouTube videos of other people doing it. Kids of ALL ages are always looking for a newer, cooler way to make slime. Maybe it's a new texture, a new color or even looking for ways to make it edible. It's really popular these days!

This recipe is a simple but fun one. Whether you are new to the slime trend or you're just looking for a flashy, colorful recipe, this article will certainly not disappoint. When I was a little girl, I made this slime. I remember loving the sparkles and seeing the "fish" swimming around. Truly magical.


  • 1 TSP. BORAX

Step 1. Measure out 1 cup of clear glue and pour into a large mixing bowl.

Step 2. Pour one cup of water into the bowl with the glue. Mix the ingredients together. You may add another 1/4 to 1/2 cup of water for a different texture.

Step 3. Find a separate smaller container. Pour 1 teaspoon of Borax powder into a cup of hot water. The water does not need to be boiled, just hot enough to dissolve the powder.

Step 4. After you have mixed up the Borax and hot water, slowly pour the mixture into your glue/water mixture. Start stirring quickly. Your slime is already starting to form! Keep stirring until all the water is mixed in. If you think you need to add more water, go ahead.

Step 5. Decorate your slime by adding a few drops of food coloring of your choice and mix.

Step 6. Add glitter for some extra sparkle! Look for other fun craft décor to add in. I used puffy sparkle stickers. You can also used fish shaped erasers or small plastic sea animals. Mix and knead the slime until it's all mixed in.

Step 7. You have now made "Under the Sea" Slime! Keep your slime in a Ziplock bag or a sealed container. Typically your slime will stay good for a couple of weeks but make sure you wash your hands before playing to avoid getting dirt in your mixture.

I hope you liked this recipe! If you have any other recipes that you would like me to try, let me know in the comments!
