This realistic looking gold glitter honey bee slime is super easy and fun to make to play with at home and for gifts!



  • 1 Cup Hot Water
  • 1/3 tsp Borax
  • 1 5 oz Clear Elmer’s Glue
  • 1/4 Cup Room Temperature Water
  • Food Coloring – I used gel food coloring (I like the different color options it gives me and the awesome color it provides!) The colors that I used were golden yellow and brown.
  • Gold Sequins
  • Extra fine glitter – I used a mix of two glitters. One was a light golden tan and one was more of a gold.
  • Bee Button Embellishments
  • 2 Containers for mixing
  • 1 Container for storing


  1. In a plastic container, pour 1 cup of hot water and stir in ⅓ tsp of Borax.
  2. In a second plastic container, mix ¼ cup water and pour an entire bottle of glue. Mix together gently.
  3. Add in your mix ins! Add the glitter to your glue mixture.
  4. Pour in some gold sequins.
  5. If you want to add some food coloring to get the perfect honey color, add it in now. I like the gel food coloring. It only takes a tiny bit. I literally stick a knife in and whatever sticks is what I add. A little will go a long way! I used a golden yellow and a brown.
  6. Once the glue mixture is the color you want, add your bees.
  7. Pour the container of the glue mixture into the water and borax solution.
  8. Let it sit for 30 seconds. You will see it instantly start to glob up. I use this time to rinse out my first container.
  9. Reach in and pull out the slime mixture and put it back into your empty container. It will be sticky right now – that’s ok. Knead it for a few minutes. If you need to firm it up, just add a touch of the remaining borax and water mixture.
  10. Store in an airtight container.
