Loom Bands Slime is a super fun way to use all your loom bands and make some crunchy slime for a sensory experience. Grab your starch and glue and meet me below to learn how to make loom bands slime!
Loom Bands Slime Ingredients
Before you get started making loom bands slime, you absolutely want to have your products on hand. I order all my slime supplies from Amazon and it makes it easy to plan craft time, parties, or DIY Slime Projects because Prime can have it here ASAP!
SLIME BOOK AVAILABLE!!
Love the Slime Recipes on MomDot? Our first book has been published and you can pick up a copy right on Amazon for yourself or to gift to a slime fan in your house! It features not only some fun basic slime recipes and how to get started on creating your own, but also some ways to use slime for holidays and gifts! Check out the book here!
Here is what you need to get started on this slime:
- Clear Glue (finding this in a gallon is HARD so you can see if they have it here…if you find it, GET IT! Otherwise you can get smaller bottles)
- Starch – again another one of those items that isn’t always easy to find
- Food Dye– I only use Wiltons Color right because it has produced a consistently beautiful slime for us- to get colors like this I recommend it.
- Loom Bands
NOTE BEFORE WE GET STARTED: Slime is a science project. Its absolutely fun, but its also messy and requires patience. Additionally, in some rare cases, people can be sensitive to the products it takes to make slime so if you find that you have sensitive skin, I advise that you use gloves before playing. Last but not least, please make sure children are supervised and these projects are not meant for children that are of an age that put items in their mouths. Slime cannot be eaten.
Loom Bands Slime Instructions
Loom Band slime is SO fun. The loom bands are super light weight, easily push into slime, can be seen in the clear slime, and have a delightful feel as you crunch the rubberbands in your hands! To make loom band slime, you will need to do the same thing you always do when you make slime recipes- mix your glue and your starch. If you are used to making slime in general, this is pretty easy for you but when it comes to clear glue, it typically needs double the amount of starch to cling together. Clear glue is VERY STICKY!! I am not giving exact measurements because it mostly depends on how much slime you want to make. That being said, we typically pour in about a cup of glue, then add your dye (if you add any, in this case we didn’t but in other slimes like the Unicorn Poop Clear Slime Recipe we did), and then up to 1 cup of starch when it comes to clear glue.
I would highly recommend adding only about 1/4th cup at a time till your slime stops being sticky. When working with clear slime, patience is your friend. The more you play, the better it gets. You will know that its the perfect amount when you can peel it off your hands.
Again, when you use CLEAR GLUE, it will have a faster flow and will not work like regular hard glue slimes. The point is to leave it super flowing! I like to use a spoon first till it starts to stick together and then knead it to finish. I consider clear slimes an advanced slime because its not as easy regular slime or fluffy slime, but its super fun and worth it.
