If you have kids or need to entertain kids with something cool, here are the instructions and ingredients to make slime. Let’s talk about something less techy and more science for a moment. My cousin, who is 15 years old, has made a side business making slime for kids. She even has a website, although the name escapes me. Make slime you ask? It’s actually very cool and even I bought the ingredients to make some for my kids. They had a blast making the slime in all sorts of colors. What I find is best, is to buy the pre – colored Elmer’s glue instead of adding food coloring to the standard white Elmer’s glue. You do not need food coloring for this to work, but color is cool. I ordered all the simple ingredients from Amazon. I have posted the links for your convenience.
What you need to buy to make slime:
The Elmer’s glue in the product list will save you money, as it’s already colored. You can purchase regular white Elmer’s glue for your slime and add food coloring if you wish.
How to make slime for kids:
- Squeeze about 4 ounces of glue into a bowl.
- Mix in 1 1/2 bottles of warm water. (The recipe calls for 4 ounces of glue and 4 ounces of warm water. The measurements don’t have to be exact.
- Add your food coloring, if desired. We added red food coloring and mixed it into a lovely shade of pink. Your best bet is to purchase the colored Elmer’s glue.
- Mix 1 teaspoon of Borax into 1/2 cup of water, and slowly add the solution to the glue mixture.
- Stir in the Borax solution until the slime starts to come together. We did not use all of the Borax solution.
- Knead the Slime. At first it will be really wet and gooey, then stringy and sloppy, until finally it will hold together.
