Have you seen the giant slime bubble video going around the internet where the kid’s dad creates this giant bubble of slime around his son? I am thinking that didn’t end well with slime all over the kid, but they don’t show you that part. However you can whip up a 2 ingredient slime recipe to make a small slime bubble version. Our homemade slime is the BEST!
2 INGREDIENT SLIME RECIPE
If you need a quick and simple two ingredients slime recipe to engage a handful of kids of multiple ages, this is perfect! We have our basic slime recipes for no fail slime every time, but we wanted to share a super quick new recipe with you that’s a little different.
What’s the difference in this 2 ingredient slime recipe? No Elmer’s Glue! Now, I am a huge fan of using their glue, but we are experimenting with other types of glue too. This easy to find glitter glue is pretty common is big box stores like Walmart!
Squeeze, pour, mix, and done! Create the slimy consistency you want by adjusting the amount of slime activator to fit your needs. Here we have chosen to use a liquid starch slime activator. Also easy to find in stores such as Walmart, Target, or grocery stores.
HOW TO MAKE OUR 2 INGREDIENT SLIME RECIPE
We have the best resources to look through before, during, and after making your red, white, and blue fluffy slime! You can even read about slime science at the bottom of this page as well as find additional slimy resources.

This simple slime recipe is a bit different then our standard liquid starch slime recipe. If you have Elmer’s glitter glue, go ahead and give it a try!
Start by squeezing out your bottle of glitter glue into a bowl. Get out as much as you can! Initially we made 3 separate colors, but you will see them all mixed together here.
Next you need your slime activator which is the liquid starch. I like to start by adding about 1/2 the amount of starch as glue. Begin mixing your slime and see how you like the consistency. With clear glue, you may find you need more to form the slime.
Knead your 2 ingredient slime recipe well for the best consistency possible. If after kneading your slime it still feels sticky, add more starch slowly. If you add too much, you can end up with rubbery slime.
Keep in mind that liquid starch does not make a borax free slime. Liquid starch contains sodium borate which is part of the boron family (as is borax powder).
Your homemade slime should come together pretty easily and be nice and stretchy. Perfect for making slime bubbles! Combine several batches for a LARGE amount of slime!
EASY SLIME RECIPE FOR EVERYDAY FUN
We made three batches worth of this simple glitter glue two ingredient slime recipe. You can enjoy swirling them together and mixing them all together. It’s rather satisfying!
Plus they make a really pretty color in the end! Depending on the colors you choose, you may end up with a muddy looking slime after a bit of mixing. Complimentary colors work best!
This is the perfect squishy, oozy 2 ingredient slime recipe that kids LOVE! Consistency is key to great slime, but I have really noticed that every kids has their own favorite consistency!
Less activator will make for a stretchier, looser slime (which might also be a little messier or stickier) while adding more activator will make a thicker firmer slime. It’s all about slime recipe preference.
Slime washes off of hands very easily, and it also sticks to itself nicely. If you have slime stuck to your hands, use more slime to peel it off!
MAKE A SLIME BUBBLE!
Use this simple two ingredient slime to make cool slime bubbles too! You will want to start with the slime on a flat surface and some patience.
This will take some practice to get it right, but your slime needs to have a good stretch as seen below. Stretch the slime out wide and high so that it looks like a sheet of slime. You will see it become very see through.
You have to work fast to flip and throw the slime down onto the surface to seal in the air for the bubble. This will surely keep the kids busy.
The moment you get the perfect slime bubble is so cool, but it takes practice. It’s a great slimy challenge for the older kids!
Pop your slime bubble and start over!
