The slime craze is real. My 4 year old is obsessed with Moana-anything right now, so naturally when she saw the glitter glue display at Target, we were not leaving the store without a few bottles. The fun thing about this slime is that it can be played with a number of ways, we made it a fun Moana activity by adding some little figurines. Between the DIY Moana necklace, the printable activities, and our Moana toys, this Moana ocean slime will fit right in around here! (I love this Moana slime with confetti that looks like the heart of Te’ Fiti too! Cute!)
Contact Solution Moana Ocean Slime
We have always made slime with borax in my house. Prior to the recent slime craze, we made it seasonally and as a fun way to celebrate holidays (check out our Halloween slime here). Given some recent warnings about using Borax in slime and the inability to access it in parts of the world, we decided to give contact solution slime a go, and we are hooked. It is just as easy and has a wonderful sensory feel!
*Contact solution does contain boric acid, however, can be purchased over the counter and is regulated by the FDA. Please use adult supervision when making slime 🙂
To Make your Moana Ocean Slime
What you need:
- 1 bottle of blue glitter glue
- 1 bottle of purple glitter glue
- 1 bottle of clear glue
- 1.5 tbsp baking soda
- 3 tbsp contact solution
What to do:
Empty the contents of the glue bottles into a bowl or a plastic bin. We like to make the slime right into a bin because it’s great for mixing, easy to play in, and great for storing!
To the glue, add the baking soda.
Add the contact solution and mix.
We added some of our small Moana toys to the slime for some fun sensory and pretend play! In addition to our toys, we added some shells which were perfect for scooping and filling.
The shells made great little slime beds for Moana’s pets 🙂
My kids are loving this slime. The texture is really great and it is quite stretchy, providing a really wonderful sensory experience!

Enjoy playing with your Moana ocean slime.
