Your kids will love this green googly eyes slime! Let’s be real, you will totally love this slime.
My daughter has given herself the title of, “professional slime creator.” She told me that she’s very experienced because she’s been creating slime for over two years now. Kids crack me up.
We are always looking for more interesting ingredients to add into our slime. When we saw an entire section of googly eyes at the craft store. It totally fit the bill!

Tips for Better Slime Making
We have tried a ton of different ingredients and Elmer’s School Glue makes the best slime. (Amazon has this glue for suuuuuper cheap. I just paid $15 a gallon at the craft store. Amazon currently has 2 gallons for $22! Here it is on Amazon to getcha some!)
Bausch & Lomb seems to work the best for slime ingredients. It helps allows the texture to congeal nicely. If the slime is too sticky add a few squirts at a time. Once it doesn’t stick to your hands, you’ve added enough. This is the kind I used
Foaming hand soap
This ingredient does two things. 1) Give the slime some puffiness 2) Makes it smell good. Glue by itself does not smell that great so it needs some help. The hand soap makes it smell great!
10 drops will give you a lighter “glow in the dark” look. For a richer color, add more food coloring. You will want to wear gloves the more you add.
A small package (about 250 pieces) of googly eyes will do just fine. As an extra fun bonus to this slime…when you give it a shake, it totally rattles. My little ones loved that!
You will want to knead the slime with both hands once all ingredients are added. This helps the ingredients fully combine.
