Whether you make slime for yourself or friends, this DIY Fruit Slime is the perfect summer project to enjoy over and over again! I love that it’s made with only a few materials and can be customized in countless ways. I went with fruit beads but Consumer Crafts has a ton of different beads that can be added to any recipe that will add a fun texture and look to your slime!
Materials needed to make your own DIY fruit slime:
Making this Fruit Salad Summer Slime is really easy! You’re going to start by emptying the entire contents of the glue container into a mixing bowl. Make sure the bowl is slightly larger than you think you need so there’s plenty of space to mix up the slime.
Next, gradually add 1/4 cup of the Elmer’s Magical Liquid and begin mixing with the wood craft stick. Continue adding the solution until done, mixing the whole time with the craft stick. You should see the slime starting to thicken. If not, you can add another tablespoon or so of the Elmer’s Magical Liquid until slime consistency is reached.
At some point, the slime will begin harden enough so that you can manipulate it with your hands. Continue working with it until the slime no longer sticks to you hands.
When the slime is at it’s perfect consistency, you can add your fun fruit beads to the bowl and start mixing it in with your hands. This step is so unbelievably satisfying!
Once you’ve balled up and stretched the slime a few hundred times, you may be ready to put it away for later use. This plastic lidded jar from Consumer Crafts was the perfect size for our fruit salad summer slime!
Adding fruit beads totally adds another fun dimension to your slime making. From glow-in-the-dark to hearts, Consumer Crafts has tons of plastic beads to choose from! Hope you have fun making this DIY Fruit Slime!
