How To Make Slime From Toothpaste

It’s gross, it’s slimy, it’s weird and it’s what our children want to play with, so here is a safe way to make all sorts of coloured slime for, or with, your kids.


You will need:

  • Toothpaste (gel-based)
  • White school glue
  • Sugar
  • Decoration like food colouring or glitter
  1. Grab a paper plate and squeeze a big blob of toothpaste in the middle. Then squeeze a blob of glue right next to it. Don’t squeeze it on top of the toothpaste because you need to mix the glue in slowly.
  2. Start mixing the glue into the toothpaste with a plastic spoon. Mix it slowly and a little at a time. Make sure you mix it thoroughly.
  3. Continue mixing until the consistency becomes slimy.
  4. Start adding a little sugar to the mixture to make the slime more solid. Add more if necessary. Mix it thoroughly.
  5. Stop mixing when the slime is able to stick to your spoon without sliding off.
  6. Make your slime unique by adding your favourite colour food colouring and some glitter for sparkle. (Obviously optional). Mix until the food colouring and glitter are evenly dispersed.
  7. Your slime should be sticky and you just be able to pick it up and play with it.

Have fun!
