How to Make Slime With Mod Podge!

How to Make Slime With Mod Podge!

Slime is all the rage with kids, tweens, and teens alike. And after making some of our own Mod Podge slime at the Plaid headquarters, we're pretty sure the super fun goo will catch on with adults as well! The best part? It is SO easy to make. And after completing the 5-minute-craft, the fun doesn't stop there. We enjoyed squishing, molding, stretching, and twirling the slime for hours, and even had fun experimenting with Mix-ins like starry glitter, paint, and hidden objects! Did we mention squeezing the slime is super relaxing? It's also fun just to watch it slowly "melt" from a ball to a flat disc. But enough about how much we love Mod Podge Slime! Let's get to why you're here: How to Make Mod Podge Slime! For full details, check out the video and instructions below! Below the instructions, you'll find even more fun inspiration of what you can do with slime!

1. Pour 1 cup warm water into a large bowl.
