Bouncing Slime Ball


  • 4 tbsp Warm Water
  • 4 tbsp Corn Starch
  • Baking Soda
  • Saline Solution
  • 1 tbsp Maddie Rae's Slime Glue (Clear or Opaque)
  • 1 tsp Glow-in-the-Dark Paint


In a bowl mix together the warm water, corn starch.

Add 1 to 2 pinches of baking soda. Mix slowly until dissolved.

Add 2 squirts of saline solution

In a separate bowl, combine glue and glow-in-the-dark paint until mixed.

Combine both bowls of ingredients. Wait 1 minute and watch the ingredients react together. Then begin to stir. The material will become sticky, hard, and slimy. But don't worry- this is suppose to happen!

Mix continuously until slime starts to form. Continue to add additional saline solution until you reach your desired consistency.

Remove the slime from the bowl and roll it into a ball. The more you roll, the less slimy it will become. It will continue to harden, but will still be squish-able.

Place ball into the refrigerator for 1 hour before bouncing!

The more you knead and play with your slime, the firmer and less sticky it will become!

Special Safety Note About Slime:

Slime is a great activity for many ages! All recipes are meant for children out of the mouthing stage and close supervision is recommended. When making slime recipes with borax, be sure to use the borax under adult supervision or have an adult be in charge of that ingredient. Borax should never be eaten and should be kept out of the reach of small children. Once slime time is over, children are encouraged to wash their hands thoroughly.
