Ingredients for spider web slime

Directions to make spider web slime
Before you get started with your slime recipe, gather all the ingredients to make this spider web slime activity easier. Once you’ve done that, pour 1/2 cup of white glue into a bowl and then add the water and stir.
In a separate bowl, combine 1 cup of water and the borax. Slowly pour it into the glue mixture, stirring constantly until slime has formed and then knead for a few minutes.
Add 3 teaspoons of instant snow to the slime and then knead the slime until intant snow is fully incorporated. Slowly add remaining teaspoon of instant snow, kneading until fully incorporated.
Continue kneading the slime until the instant snow expands and gets worked into the slime, as it will be very stiff at first.
Once you have completed the slime recipe, preheat the oven to 275 degrees. Start making the spiders by rolling 2 small balls of black polymer clay. Then, roll a long piece and cut into 8 leg pieces and attach to the spider body. Bake on wax paper for a few minutes in the oven and stick them into the slime once they have had time to cool.
Alternatively, you can use these spider buttons. Enjoy playing with your spider web slime! Store slime in an airtight container once finished playing.

1 cup of water too much! Just add 1/2 cup of water to the glue and 1 cup of water with the borax. This recipe made a mess.
We didn’t have any problem making this recipe, but thanks for sharing the tip in case anyone else has an issue.
