Homemade Slime

*Best for kids ages 3 and up due to the fact that Borax can be toxic if eaten in large quantities



2 Mixing Bowls
Measuring Cups
1 cup Elmer’s Glue
4 tsp Borax
Food Coloring (we tried to make it red, but it wasn’t strong enough and turned pink)
3/4 cup and 1 1/3 cup warm water

  1. Mix 3/4 cup warm water, 1 cup glue and several drops of food coloring in the first bowl.
  2. In the second bowl, mix together 4 tsp Borax and 1 1/3 cups warm water.
  3. Pour contents of first bowl into second bowl, but don’t stir. Let it sit for 1-2 minutes. Lift the now congealed slime out of the bowl.
  4. Divide the slime.
The slime can stick to clothing. It may seem a little soupy at first, but after a while it firms up. Save in ziploc baggies for another day!
