Glitter Slime

Some afternoons call for a batch of super-duper-stretchy-sparkly glitter slime. 

clear school glue (We used Elmer's)
tubes of glitter glue (or fine glitter)
food coloring (optional) 
baking soda
contact solution

For each batch of glitter slime, we poured a whole (5 oz) bottle of glue into a bowl and squeezed in a tube's worth of glitter glue. (You can see the size of the tubes of glitter glue in the first pic.) We added 3 drops of food coloring to some batches and left other batches completely clear. We then stirred it all together with 1 1/2 teaspoons of baking soda until thoroughly mixed. After that, we added in 1 tablespoon of contact solution which quickly thickened the glue. At that point we dug in and mixed it with our hands. It was still a bit sticky so we added a little over 1/2 teaspoon more of contact soultion which was just right. We couldn't believe how fun and stretchy this concoction was.
