This super quick and easy tutorial will show you how to make Easy Easter Slime Egg Excavations. These excavations are a lot of fun to make and hide for your Excavating Adventurers to find and enjoy. 
  • 1/2 cup clear Elmer's School Glue
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon Borax Powder, plus 1 cup water
  • 1 Gallon ziplock freezer bag
  • The items to be excavated. There are all kinds of little trinkets that are fun and inexpensive that can used in our Easy Easter Slime Excavations. I like to use little plastic animals. Just make sure the items you choose to use fit in your eggs. Tumbled stones, coins, and even small fossils are other great excavation item ideas. 
  • Plastic Easter eggs. Make sure these snap together securely. 
  • Optional: Food coloring, paint, glitter and other fun ways to customize your slime to fit your activity.


Pro tip: Cut green plastic Easter grass into little pieces and add to the slime!

  1. Pour the glue and 1/2 cup water into the ziplock bag and mix well. Add food coloring, glitter, or paint at this time and mix together. Set aside.
  2. In a separate bowl, combine 1 cup warm water and the Borax powder and mix until the powder is dissolved.
  3. Add one tablespoon of the Borax solution in the ziplock freezer bag and mix until slime begins to form. Add additional Borax solution one teaspoon at a time if you need to thicken your slime. You will know your slime is ready when it starts to pull away from the side of the ziplock bag. 
  4. Place an excavation item in an egg and fill with slime. It the eggs do not snap together tightly, seal them with a piece of clear tape. 
  5. Feel free to hand out the eggs, add them to Easter baskets, or include them in an Easter egg hunt!


Pro tip: This is a fun and easy little excavation activity that is very inexpensive. You can even use little plastic dinosaurs and make slime dinosaur eggs that are a lot of fun and great for dinosaur themed birthday parties.
