11 Cute DIY Ocean And Mermaid Slime Crafts

Mermaids are so mystical and magical – it’s no wonder kids love them so much! This easy to make mermaid slime is not only fun for your mermaid-loving child; it’s incorporates sensory play and is great for classroom or homeschool lessons about the ocean. 

So let’s take a trip under the sea and break out the glitter and sequins to make this magical blue mermaid slime! This Borax-free slime is super colorful and sparkly and uses iridescent glitter, two colors of food coloring, and pastel mermaid sequins to bring it to life. Your Little Mermaid lovers are going to be obsessed with this sea-glass looking slime! 

Supplies you need for this project

Crafting Tips:

  • When crafting in groups, purchase value packs of glue (I’ve included a link above) to keep costs down and in ease of making
  • It’s best to use bowls and mixing supplies that you will throw away or save just for slime projects.
  • We mixed in blue and teal food coloring, but try adding purple too!

  • For both glitter and food coloring, you can always start off with a small amount and add more until you get the desired color and sparkle effect.

How to Make Mermaid Slime

  1. Empty entire bottle of clear glue into a plastic bowl.
  2. Add one tablespoon of baking soda.
  1. Squirt in one tablespoon of saline solution.
  1. Add in a couple tablespoons of iridescent glitter to the mix; the more glitter, the more sparkly your slime will be.
  2. Drop in one drop of blue food coloring, then drop in one drop of teal food coloring. Now mix.
  1. Knead your slime.

    If slime is still sticky, squirt in a little more saline solution until slime pulls away from bowl and isn’t as gooey.

Your kids will love this pretty, blue mermaid slime, a fun way to spend an afternoon! We suggest making this slime as a rainy day activity, classroom craft, or for an ocean-themed party.  It might just be the next best thing to visiting the ocean or watching “The Little Mermaid“!

Fish in a Bag Slime

11 Cute DIY Ocean And Mermaid Slime Crafts

I have a silly and fun little craft idea that is perfect for summer.  Kids love slime, at least mine do, and it is so simple and cheap to make.  Absolutely perfect for hot summer afternoons or for rainy days.  There is a new Finding Dory movie coming out June 16th and these would be so cute to make after catching that movie!

I try to have a bit of quiet time on summer afternoons to get housework and blog stuff done and making the kids a bag of slime is perfect to keep them entertained.  This summer I am trying hard to come up with a lot of ideas this for quiet time because I really want to start listening to some French language CDs for kids that I found at the library.

So when my 8 year old came home begging for a fish one day, I had an idea to create a fish in a bag for her from slime

Sparkly Mermaid Slime Sensory Play ⋆ Sugar, Spice and Glitter

11 Cute DIY Ocean And Mermaid Slime Crafts

Welcome to Sugar, Spice & Glitter! My newsletter is the best way to stay up to date with our delicious recipes, fun kids’ activities and other gems for Rockstar Moms. Please note, this post may contain affiliate links which help support the cost of running this website. For more details, please see our Full Disclosure .

We’re in full-on Mermaid obsession over here.

After the wild success of the Mermaid Teepee, I wanted to try out a Mermaid Sensory Play idea as a kick-off to a full-out Mermaid Study, which I’m hoping will create some new interests in sea life, folk lore, and …

After finding these awesome mermaid sequins, I knew I had to make Mermaid Slime!

The mermaid slime was more teal in colour than these pictures show (I blame the Canadian winter sun), but as you can see, it was sparkly, beautiful, and inviting — what more could you ask from a sensory play material?

A good slime should not be sticky, but rather thick, stretchy, and oozy. For my kids who will get upset if the slime sticks to them a bit (it comes off very easily if you rub your hands), I just wet down their hands before they play and keep some water ready to keep their hands moist, which stops the slime from sticking.

My kids love spreading the slime out all over the table and squishing their hands in it.

And stretching the slime which is a great little work-out!

Slime is pleasantly cool to the touch and is wondrous and exciting, without being too gross or making an actual mess. The worse that we get is sometimes it sticks to the bare patches on the table where the varnish has worn off, or a bit of slime on clothing which is easily dissolved with a bit of vinegar.

Side note: Vinegar also works to remove slime from hair…

Before we get to the recipe, I had to tell you that it’s finally here! I wrote The (Ultimate) Slime Book oozing with over 50 pages of stretchable, squishy sensory fun – including a year of seasonal slimes, edible slimes and unique ways to play with slime. Click here to get more details.

You can purchase The Slime Book on Amazon, Book Depository, or at your local bookstore!
