Pretty Pretty Pink Princess Slime

There once lived two little princesses who were driving their mother insane.
So mother decided to test out a recipe for slime online.
It was a success the princesses were impressed!
They played with the slime and saved mother 2.5 hours of time (no kidding)!


Enough of the rhyming!
This stuff was cool and super easy to make. My girls loved it – you gotta try it!


I can’t take credit for this, so GO HERE to Steve Spangler Science for the recipe (he even explains how it works, which is perfect for homeschoolers)!

What I did do differently – I used a beet to dye the slime pretty pretty princess pink! Steve’s directions are to combine a teaspoon of Borax with 1/2 cup of warm water. I sliced up a beet and poured 1/2 a cup of HOT water over them and let them sit for about a minute. Drain the water from the beets and discard the beets. Combine the water with the Borax and continue with the directions as written. Tumeric would be an excellent choice for a natural yellow dye and you could try using paprika for orange.

Have fun and enjoy! xoxo

Hi Megan,

Just wanted to leave a quick note here for your readers about the slime. I have made this several times with great success. It's so amazing! But I have to tell you, I used a generic glue and the recipe did not work. So, just a heads up that It must be the Elmer's brand! :-)

Hope you're doing well! Is it spring yet in your part of the country??

Hugs, --Amber

I just read your story via Spunky Coconut on FB and almost cried. After suffering for years with psoriasis, IBS, and psoriatic arthritis, I took matters into my own hands a year ago after being told yet again that my symptoms were related to the fact that I'm over 40. I decided to go GF and it changed my life. You are an inspiration for me to keep tweeking my diet. Almost everyone but my husband thinks I'm either crazy or experiencing some incredible placebo effect. I also take methotrexate and it works pretty nicely for me, but changing my diet is what got me pain free. I'm finally getting a grip on my life again Thanks for sharing your story. I wish you many pain free days ahead! Karen

Hi Karen, I'm so glad you went gluten free when you did! Good for you for taking control of your own health! And you're definitely NOT crazy. I too experience people who give me weird looks or make snide comments - it's unfortunate.

Are you on Facebook? If you are, please look for my personal page (under my name of Megan Everitt Ancheta) and friend me. I will then add you to a private psoriatic arthritis support group I'm part of. It's a safe place to vent, ask for advice, get support, etc. There aren't many of us who are trying to control our disease via diet, but it's still a wonderful group to be a part of.

Lots of pain free hugs to you!! Megan

That is amazing! I love it. What a fun idea. I make my own laundry soap, so I have borax on hand! Thanks for such a great suggestion. What big, beautiful smiles in those pictures. I can TOTALLY relate to needing some time, something, anything to entertain the children, just for a bit or while mommy makes dinner. :-)

Hugs, --Amber
