What is crunchy slime?
Crunchy slime starts with a basic slime recipe but has a twist. You add foam beads or some type of beads to the slime. We are using fish bowl beads and the kids love this!
How do you make beads stick to slime?
This slime is made a little bit sticker than you normally would make slime and the glue acts as a polymer. This all helps the beads stay in place and stick to the ingredients.
What happens if you put too much activator in slime?
Using too much activator in slime will produce slime that is hard and not pliable. It is better to add a little bit of activator as you can always add more but cannot take it away.
You will quickly get the hang of this as you start making more and more slime. It is very easy.
Let’s make this crunchy slime recipe!

Supplies you need for this crunchy slime:
- 1 Cup of Clear Glue
- Food Coloring
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1 Tablespoon Contact Lens Solution
- 1/2 Cup for Fishbowl Beads
How to make crunchy slime:
First, place the clear glue in a small mixing bowl
Next, mix in the food coloring of your choice.
Stir in the baking soda.
Then slowly mix in 1 Tablespoon of the contact lens solution and stir until a slime is formed.
Once the glue starts pulling away from the edge of the bowl and is sticking to the spoon, remove the slime from the bowl and knead with your heads until the slime is the consistency that you prefer.
Pro Tip: You’ll want the slime to be stickier than normal so that it will hold the fishbowl beads. This is key to getting the beads to stay in the slime and adhering.
Then mix in the fishbowl beads and enjoy!
