You Will Need
- A new 4 oz. bottle of white glue
- 2.0 mixing bowls
- A large spoon
- Food coloring
- 2.0 measuring cups
- A measuring tablespoon
- A resealable plastic bag
Squeeze the entire bottle of glue into one of the bowls.
Fill the empty glue bottle with water, shake, and pour that in with the glue. Stir well.
Add food coloring
Add a few drops of food coloring to the glue mixture and stir. Set aside.
Mix water & borax
In a liquid measuring cup mix one cup of water with one tablespoon of borax until the borax all dissolves.
Add borax solution
Measure out one-third cup of the borax water solution, and pour it into the other bowl. You won't need the leftovers.
Pour & stir
Slowly pour all of your glue solution into this bowl, and stir while pouring.
Squeeze & knead
The slime will start forming immediately. When you've added the glue mixture and stirred it, pick up the blob that's now in your bowl and start squeezing and kneading it. There will be some water left in the bottom of the bowl.
Gross out friends
The more you play with the slime, the firmer and drier it'll get—but it'll still be icky enough to gross out your friends.
