It’s time to Unbottle Laffter with Captain Underpants, Tampico Beverages, and this EPIC Slime recipe. Make your own EPIC slime and have EPIC fun! While the post is sponsored, all opinions are 100% my own.
Some kids like to do gymnastics, some like to dance, some like video games, some love sports, some like to do a combination of all those things. My daughter loves to make slime. In fact, I would say it’s her superpower, I know no other child that can come home from school and make three different slimes with different themes in less than an hour. She will have friends come over and they need no entertaining from me or electronics – they just need a few simple ingredients and they can be kept busy for hours.
When she heard that Captain Underpants was coming out with a movie, an EPIC Movie, she wanted to make an EPIC slime. Since I vetoed a slime in honor of Professor Poopypants 😉 , she decided to make a clear slime with green beads. Once the slime was set she added in a few drops of green acrylic pant to make it an EPIC Booger Slime.
Now, if you have ever watched your child make slime, it’s quite a process! So before you start, make sure to enjoy a nice refreshing glass of Tampico to power you up for the task. Creating EPIC slime can make a girl thirsty! (P.S. No Tampico Punch was used to create the slime)

To make EPIC slime you need:
- Clear Glue
- Baking Soda
- Saline Solution (be sure it has boric acid)
- Greens Beads
- Green Acrylic Paint
Once you have your ingredients get out a bowl and get ready to get slime-y!
In the bowl, add 1/4 cup (3 oz) of clear glue.
Add in 1 tablespoon of water, and stir well.
Once the water and glue are mixed, pour in a 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda. Mix well, baking soda can leave clumps, just do your best.
Add in 2 teaspoons of saline solution. Mix well. It will be pretty liquid-y at first, but as you continue to mix it, it will get slime-y. If it is too liquid-y, add in a touch more baking soda.
Now, take a break and have a sip of your Tampico!
Once the slime was formed, we added in the beads and just 2-3 drops of paint. You don’t need much paint to make it change color.
Now, have FUN with it!
You can use white glue, the color of paint will just be lighter, not as true to the color of paint you added.
Keep your EPIC slime in a jar while you aren’t playing with it.
