pinch of luck slime

This slime shimmers like a pot of gold! We’re sure you’ll have lots of luck with this simple, super-glittery St. Patrick’s Day slime.
Step 1
Project Notes:
   -  You can mix and match any type of Elmer’s® glue for this recipe. We used one 9 fl. oz. bottle of clear glue. If you’d like your slime to look like ours, that’s what we recommend you use, too.
   -  When you’re crafting with little ones, keep an eye on the chunky glitter and sequins, since these may present a choking hazard.
   -  When making slime, be smart and protect your work surface with wax (or parchment) paper. You also may want to wear an apron (or other protective garment) to avoid slime-related accidents.
 
Follow your recipe’s instructions to make a batch of clear slime. You don’t need to add any food coloring to this slime. (Although if you want to, that’s fine!) All the color will come from the glitter that you add afterward.

Step 2
Flatten out your slime on a piece of wax (or palette) paper. Sprinkle jumbo holographic Gold glitter and then lots of the finer holographic Gold glitter into the slime. Fold the slime’s edges in toward the center to blend the glitter into the slime. Pick it up and continue to fold and stretch it until all of the glitter is blended well into the slime.
 
TIP: You can add more glitter if you feel you need to by just flattening it out again. Sprinkle the glitter and then fold. Be sure to add enough to make it gleam with Gold! 
Step 3
Repeat Step 2 but add some Emerald glitter this time. This is what gives your slime the green color. Continue folding and stretching until all the different kinds of glitter are evenly distributed throughout the slime.
 
TIP: If you plan to keep your slime for more than a few hours, be sure to store it in an airtight, sealable container (or a re-sealable plastic bag).
