Ingredients Needed:

Bowl One:

  • 2 Cups White School Glue
  • 1½ Cups Warm Water

  • 20 Drops Green Food Coloring

Bowl Two:

  • 1⅓ Cups Warm Water
  • ¾ Teaspoon of Borax (also found in laundry/dish cleaning aisle of most stores)

Combine ingredients in each bowl as listed above. Then combine both bowls. At this point I highly recommend just using your hands and knead until it is no longer sticking to your hands. We tried using gloves but they just got in the way. The moment you add in the borax mixture it will almost immediately start to form together.

When it comes to color and glitter consistency it really is personal preference. Even after it’s come together you can still continue to add in more drops of color and glitter until it’s just how you want it.

From making it to playing with slime, my boys love every part of it. It’s so simple to make and trying to hold it, cut it, manipulate it never gets old.

Both boys have fun with the slime. You can pretty much use many of the basic play dough tools with your slime too.
