We used this recipe here.
I thought I might mention a little bit about Borax. For some reason, people are afraid of it. Unless you are eating it, the stuff is completely harmless. I use it in my laundry soap since I make my own. Don't be too afraid of this recipe. It is so much fun! But, in case you are wondering, if you substitute contact solution for the borax, water mixture, it should be fine. Both of those ingredients are considered the "activator" and should still do the same chemical reaction as it changes it's state. (there's some science for you!).

Easy Slime Recipe
1/2 TBS baking soda
1 TBS contact lens solution
4 oz bottle of glue (full).
Find a mixing bowl to make your slime in. Pour all your glue into the bowl and add baking soda. Stir. Add food coloring. Stir some more. Add some glitter if you want*. Add contact lens solution and continue stirring until the slime forms and it becomes hard to stir with a spoon. Take it out of the bowl and continue mixing it with your hands. If it is still sticky, add a drop of solution and continue mixing it with your hands. Then just play with it! Store in a ziplock bag or a plastic container with a lid.
* we used fine glitter and regular sized glitter of all different colors.
