    Focus Slime

    Your students will love using this slime during test time!
    • Easy to Moderate

    Supplies Needed

    • 5 fl. oz. Elmer’s  Glow in the Dark Glue
    • ½ tbsp. baking soda
    • 1 tbsp. contact lens solution
    • Bowl
    • Mixing utensils
    • Measuring spoons
    • Clear balloons


    1. Pour the entire bottle of Elmer’s Glow in the Dark Glue into a bowl. Add ½ tbsp. of baking soda and mix thoroughly. Then add 1 tbsp. of contact lens solution and mix until solution gets thick and slime begins to form.
    2. Take the slime out and begin kneading it with both hands. If needed, add ¼ tbsp. of contact lens solution to make the slime less sticky.
    3. Stretch apart the opening of a balloon, and put about 2 tablespoons of slime inside. Tie off the balloon so it’s secure.
    4. You can make just a few or enough for your entire class. Let your students use the Focus Slime as you see fit!
    5. Lower the lights for the ultimate glow-in-the-dark fun!

    *Adult supervision is required; this project is not appropriate for children under the age of 3 years. Thoroughly wash your hands before and after making and playing with slime. Warning: If large quantities of contact lens solution are accidentally ingested (greater than a tablespoon), get medical attention immediately.

    *Some contact solution brands work better than others, check out our Slime Tips section for all the details
