You're new to the skills necessary to complete this project, or maybe you've tried them just once or twice before.
Step 1
Project Notes:
 - All types of Elmer’s® glue work with this recipe; however, we used white glue to make the slime to fill the balloon.
 - Be careful when children are crafting with balloons, as the product does have a choke hazard warning on the label.
 - Protect your work surface with wax paper (or palette paper) and wear an apron (or other protective garment) to protect clothing, as the food coloring and paint may stain.
 
First, find your favorite glue slime recipe. You’ll add color to each slime according to your recipe’s instructions.

Step 2
To make the slime to fill the balloon, pour one 4 fl. oz. bottle of white glue into a mixing bowl. Add gel food coloring to the glue, following your recipe’s instructions.
 
TIP: Dip a craft stick into the food coloring container, then mix the color into the glue, stirring thoroughly until it’s completely blended. Always use a new, clean craft stick when dipping into your food coloring, in order to avoid cross-contamination.
Step 3
Flatten out your slime on a piece of wax (or palette) paper and pour glitter in the center. Fold the slime’s edges in toward the center to blend the glitter into the slime. Continue until the glitter is evenly distributed throughout the slime. 
Step 4
Pour slime into a decorator’s bag. Snip the tip of the bag. 
Step 5
Place a balloon over the end of the cut bag and pipe slime into balloon.
 
TIP: Be sure to have a tight, secure hold on the balloon. 
Step 6
Tie off the balloon.
