Here's what you'll need:
A little scientist or 2...and:
Borax, glue and water...and food coloring.
Measure out 1 cup of glue.
We used white school glue, because that is what we have
tons of! You can use clear glue for a more oozey slime.
Pour into large mixing bowl.
Fill your measuring cup with 1 cup of warm water
and add that in too.
Then rinse out your measuring cup.
Add food coloring (about 2 drops green and 3 yellow...or whatever)
and stir it up!
Then put 1/2 cup warm water into your measuring cup.
Add 1 teaspoon Borax...stir.
Stir stir stir.
Kind of like kneading dough...you are mixing, squishing
and smooshing all the stuff together.
There shouldn't be any liquid left over--it will all be assimilated into slime
It's like a liquid when it is in your hand holding still...
but becomes hard and solid when manipulated!
We sat on the grass and played with it for 2 hours straight!
Don't eat it. I told my kids they could...
but it was glue and soap...their choice.
No one tried it. :)
Note: For an adult and my 8 and 10 year olds,
this was a mess free activity.
It's easy to manipulate the slime without it getting everywhere...
for the 4 year old...
It got a little messy. But fun, nothing that I couldn't handle...
we didn't even get out the hose!Probably smart to play with it outside anyway!
It's THAT awesome!
Stores in an airtight container and lasts weeks!
This would be a fun birthday present for a boy!Love it!
Linking up to THESE parties this week!
