Safety note: Borax can be dangerous if ingested or breathed. Do not make this slime recipe with kids who might place the slime in their mouths or if you know your family has a sensitivity to borax. Try our edible taffy slime if you want something safe for all ages and edible, too!
What you’ll need to make the ocean slime recipe:

- Borax powder
- Elmer’s clear glue
- Blue food coloring
- Ocean animals (optional)
Use our classic borax slime recipe to make this slime. Mix one teaspoon of borax powder with 1/2 a cup of water. Mix 5 ounces of glue, the food coloring, the glitter, and 1/2 a cup of water to a second container. Add the borax water to the glue mixture and stir until completely mixed.
Stretch and mix the slime until it stretches. Borax slime breaks a little easier than laundry starch slime, so you’ll need to be careful not to stretch it too quickly. Alternatively, you can make this using laundry starch, just follow the recipe for liquid laundry starch slime and add the blue dye and glitter to that mixture.
It usually takes a few minutes to prime the slime before it has the ideal slime texture. After working with it, it will start to look like this.
Add in your ocean animals and let your kids go crazy.
