My kids and I usually have family movie night on Fridays. But lately we’ve been mixing things up by having “science night Fridays.” Although they would have had fun doing our science projects anyway, I decided to give everything a dinosaur twist. My little four year old is obsessed with dinosaurs. As long as something has even the slightest amount of his favorite topic, he’s interested. He was beyond excited to make dino drool clear slime!
If your child is also dinosaur obsessed, check out why you should encourage your child’s love of dinosaurs. Now on to the slime!
Ingredients For Slime
There are only two ingredients in this dino drool clear slime recipe.
Does a screen free activity get easier than that? My kids are loving making a variety of different slime recipes. We’ve been buying glue and Elmer’s Magical Liquid in bulk.
How to Make Clear Slime
Making this dino drool clear slime couldn’t be easier. Simply mix 4 to 6 ounces of clear glue and 1/4 cup of Elmer’s Magical Liquid in a bowl and stir. Once the slime is mixed up, use your hands to knead the slime to the right consistency.
Here’s a quick video from our YouTube channel so you can see this clear slime recipe in action.
Is Homemade Slime Safe?
Even at four years old I have to worry about what my little boy puts in his mouth. We have made slime using borax, contact solution, and also liquid starch. When we make these slime recipes, I watch him like a hawk. I can’t get him to eat his dinner, but he’s always surprising me with non-edible things he chews on.
Ugh… little kids can be so weird.
So when I saw Elmer’s Magical Liquid I was really excited. It’s washable, safe, and non-toxic. It also replaces contact solution and you don’t need the borax either!
According to the safety data sheet for Elmer’s Magical Liquid there are no known significant effects or critical hazards for eye contact, inhalation, skin contact or ingestion. Of course that doesn’t mean that your child should put the slime in or around their mouth. And children should still be supervised, especially if they’re known to do the unexpected.
It’s always a good idea to wash hands after playing with any slime. Since my kids like to use this clear slime as dinosaur drool when they’re playing, I also wash the toy dinosaurs when they’re done too.
How to Clean Up Slime
As you can see, this slime starts out really sticky. Although it may seem like you’ll never get it off of your kids’ hands, as they keep squishing it in their hands it will become more and more solid. You can “roll” it off of your skin, toys and other hard surfaces. Then just use soap and water – although try not to let globs of slime go down your drain. If you happen to get the clear slime on clothes or other fabric, thanks to the Elmer’s Magical Liquid, it’s washable.
Here’s what the clear slime looks like after kneading it for a few minutes.
But I’m looking for a Crystal Clear Slime Recipe
Our clear slime recipe doesn’t make slime so clear that you can see through it. There are lots of little bubbles that I think are perfect for pretending this is dinosaur drool or if your child is playing with that dinosaur that spits – a Dilophosaurus.
On a side note, Dilophosaurus didn’t actually spit poison as portrayed in Jurassic Park. In fact, there’s no evidence of any dinosaurs spitting poison. There’s today’s dinosaur fact to share with your kiddo.
Anyhoo…. if you’re looking for a crystal clear slime recipe, check out this one from Little Bins for Little Hands.
