In Home Entertainment: The BEST Slime

We've been getting into the spooky spirit early this year and I've been after mom to let me decorate the house for Halloween (she blames Target who already has a Christmas aisle up!).  So mom decided to give another slime recipe a try (remember our last one?  not pretty).  There was really nothing complicated about making this, but it was fantastic.

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.
