This stuff is so easy to make and uses only 4 ingredients that you probably already have laying around the house.
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/2 cup Elmer’s glue
- 1/4 tsp borax powder
- Food coloring
- You will need 2 bowls, put 1/4 cup of water in each bowl. In one bowl mix the 1/2 cup of glue and in the other bowl mix the 1/4 tsp of borax until they are both completely combined. Then, add the borax water to the glue/water bowl and start to stir. The slime will be a little watery, just take it out and use your hands to get it really incorporated. If it’s still a little too wet, just set it on a piece of foil or wax paper for a few minutes until it sets up.
Be sure to get creative with your colors! We used the white glue for the pink and green in the picture above. The blue with glitter did not need any color added. The glue was already blue with the glitter. The purple slime was made with the clear Elmer’s glue to give it a more translucent look.
The glue itself is non-toxic but the borax powder is not. So be sure to tell your kiddos not to try and eat the slime!
