Here’s a fun project to do with kids on a rainy day…and the best part is the fun can last for weeks. I found the “recipe” on pinterest via Tinkerlab and was shocked to see both of my boys spend ages playing with the slime.
All you need is some Elmer’s Glue, Borax and water, and food coloring if desired! I halved Tinkerlab’s recipe because that’s the amount of glue I had and it was plenty of slime for my son to play with…
I took 2 oz white glue and mixed it with 2 oz lukewarm water. Now’s a good time to add the food coloring. In a separate bowl I mixed 1/2 tsp Borax with 1/4 cup water. Then I slowly added the Borax mixture to the glue mixture while stirring, only adding until the mixture begins to form into the wonderful consistency of slime.
When not using your slime, store it in an airtight container until it starts stinking (ours is going on a few weeks and still smells fine).
