Disney’s Family Fun website had a kid friendly recipe for making slime for Halloween time. However I think anytime is a good time for slime when you have kids. It’s so easy to make, and sort of a science experiment.
You only need a few ingredients:
1 cup of glue
4 tsp. of borax
Food coloring of your choice
You’ll need two bowls.
In the first, put 3/4 cup of warm water and 1 cup of glue. Then pick what color you want to make your slime. Obviously green is the preferred choice, but I went with purple to make it a little less “icky.” Add your coloring to the water and glue and stir it in. (I could have used more to make my color deeper).
In the second bowl put 4 teaspoons of borax and 1 1/3 cups of water and mix.
Then pour the glue mixture into the borax mixture. DON’T MIX! Let it sit for a couple of minutes.
The borax mixture does not absorb. It just somehow “solidifies” the glue mixture into slime.
Hope you have fun!
(Just in case there was any doubt, this is NOT edible, so make sure little ones don’t taste test. Borax can be toxic if ingested in large amounts.)
