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 ocean Moana slime will fit right in around here!
Contact Solution Moana 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 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
How to make Moana Slime
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 play! In addition to our toys, we added some shells which were perfect for scooping and filling.
Shells have become a staple to our toy collection. My daughter loves to organize them, order them, and inspect them.
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! I also love how the glitter glue doesn’t require any added glitter, making it slightly messier than other slimes my daughter likes to make.

What if my child puts slime in their mouth?
Edible slime is simple to make. We like to use pudding as a base for our edible slime with toddlers and younger children. It gives it a firmer texture and is really great for their fine motor skills.
Simply follow the edible slime recipe here, and swirl blue food coloring with purple or green for an island ocean feel!
