We made one batch of green and one purple and had some super messy fun -- it turned out a little more like gak than slime. To mom's surprise, it looks a lot more difficult to clean up than it was (although slimed clothes weren't the most fun, so you might want to go au natural for this one). We twirled it on chopsticks, cut long strands of it, and slimed our hands. We asked for it again the next day and made another batch that was a little more slimey. So we broke out some drink straws and practiced blowing bubbles.
To make this super easy slime, you'll need:
- 1 tsp Borax (per batch)
- 4 ounces glue (per batch)
- 1 1/2 cups water
- food coloring
Mix 1 tsp Borax into 1 cup water and set aside. Mix 4 ounces glue with 1/2 cup water. Add in food coloring. Then stir in borax mixture. It will immediately start to congeal, but keep stirring. Then for the real fun -- squeeze out the excess liquid and knead slime with hands until you reach the desired consistency. Slime away.
