So much fun for toddlers/preschoolers. And not as messy as playdough!! Watch the little ones that they don't consume it.
Great fun for Halloween or anytime!
1/2 cup white glue
6 Tbsp. water
1-4 tsp. Borax
1-4 Tbsp. water
Mix the glue, 6 tablespoons water and food coloring until it is dissolved.
In a separate bowl, dissolve 1 teaspoon borax into 1 tablespoon water. Add to the glue solution. You will get a very thick clump of slime when the two mix. Pull the clump of slime out of the glue mixture and put it in a separate bowl.
Mix another batch of the borax solution and add to the remaining glue mixture. Repeat until all the glue mixture is used (about 3-4 times).
With clean hands, knead the slime to mix. This will take about 10 minutes and is not very difficult as the slime easily separates between your fingers.
If a looser, more slimy texture is desired knead in a bit more water. The more water you add, the slimier it gets.
The slime doesn't leave a residue and doesn't get stuck on anything.
Store in an airtight container. This can easily be doubled, tripled or quadrupled.
