How to make your own slime

How to Make Your Own Slime

There is just something about slime that kids love (some adults too)!! Here is a recipe for a DIY slime that you and your children can do at home. This slime is very easy to make and once you are finished will give your kids hours of fun time play!!

Supplies Needed:
  • Large bowl 
  • Small bowl 
  • Measuring cup 
  • Measuring spoons 
  • Fork (for mixing)
  • 4-oz bottle of white school glue 
  • Warm water
  • Blue food coloring (or color of your choice)
  • Glitter 
  • Borax (Available at most stores)

1. Pour the full bottle of glue into the large bowl.
2. Mix in half a cup of water. (Hint: You can also just fill the glue bottle with water to make sure you have equal parts of each)
3. Add food coloring and stir. (I used two drops for a snowy light blue)
4. Stir in as much glitter as you like. (I love sparkle, so I used a lot)
5. Pour one cup of warm water into the smaller bowl and mix in one teaspoon of Borax.
6. Add the Borax mixture to your larger bowl one tablespoon at a time, mixing and kneading as you go, until the slime is the perfect stretchy consistency. (I ended up using three tablespoons)
7. When you're done for the day, store your slime in an airtight container.
Note: Borax is not safe to eat, so make sure your kids wash their hands after playtime!
