For this slime recipe, you'll need these ingredients:

How to make slime

STEP 1: Lay out your supplies

Before you begin, lay out all your supplies to make the process a bit easier. You'll also want to grab a small bowl and airtight container for storage.

If you'd like to divide the supplies ahead of time, you'll need to divide the water into 1/2 cup portions, the baking soda into 1/2 teaspoon proportions, and the contact solution into tablespoon portions.

STEP 2: Mix your slime base

To begin, pour 5 ounces, or 1 bottle, of clear glue into a bowl. Then, add 1/2 cup of water and 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda; stir well.

STEP 3: Add paint and glitter

Next, squirt some orange paint until you're happy with the shade of colour. Stir well. Once you've done that, add some glitter to your liking and stir again.

STEP 4: Add contact solution and knead

Add 1 tablespoon of contact solution and watch as the slime begins to form - it's going to be sticky at first so try not to panic. Mix the solution until the slime starts to form together.

Knead the slime until it is no longer sticky and then set aside in a small bowl.

STEP 5: Repeat for yellow and white

Next, repeat steps 2-4 while utilising yellow paint and glitters rather than orange.

Then, repeat steps 2-4 again while utilising the white glue instead of clear and omitting the paint and glitter.

STEP 6: Layer your slime

Once you've got all your slime colours, start layering them starting with yellow, then orange, and then white. They will begin to blend together and create fun swirls!

STEP 7: Have fun!

Now, have fun playing with the colours. As you stretch, play, and blend them together more, they will create a fun pumpkin colour!

Store your candy corn slime in an airtight container when not in use.
