Doesn't the smell of bubble gum take you back to childhood. I loved the packets of Big League Chew that we would get at ball games. Double Bubble was another favorite in my house. Well, making a batch of DIY Bubble Gum Slime is extra fun because this slime smells just like bubble gum!
DIY Bubble Gum Slime
Did I mention that my daughter started her own slime business last year at school? It was really successful and she sold a LOT of slime to the middle school kids she went to school with.
I love to see my kids become little entrepreneurs at a young age! Watching them buy their own supplies, set prices and fill orders…makes a momma proud!
Well let's get on to making this slime!
Supplies Needed for Bubble Gum Slime
- 3 cup white glue
- ⅓ cup Instant Snow
- ⅔ cup Sta-Flo
- ⅔ cup water, hot
- 2 containers
- Pink Coloring–we like to use these soap dyes instead of food coloring
- Bubble Gum Scent
How to Make Bubble Gum Slime
- Pour three cups of white glue into a container or bowl. We usually just use bowls for the mixing and then put the finished slime in a nice container with a lid so it lasts longer.
- Sta-Flo will be the activator. Slowly add the Sta-Flo one teaspoon at a time, mixing between each. If needed, you can use a little more or less to your liking. Once you get used to making slime you will have a better feel for how much you want.
- Knead your slime. It will be sticky right now – that’s ok! I know that stickiness freaks people out, but it is part of the process.
- In a second bowl, pour the instant snow and add hot water. It will expand and ‘puff’. Don’t be discouraged when you see the container of insta-snow. It looks small, but it is plenty for several batches of slime! It really expands! The first time I saw the container I couldn't believe how small it was…but it really does make a lot.
- Add the instant snow to the white slime and knead well. I like to add in my snow in smaller batches kneading in between until you get the texture you want.
- Add in the pink coloring. We have found that using the soap dyes I linked to in the supplies list works better than basic food coloring dyes.
- Knead the slime well.
- Add a few drops of bubble gum scent and work it into the slime.
- Store in an airtight container and have a blast playing with it!
Quick and Easy Fun
