Food Friday - Slime

This is a simple recipe for slime (kind of like playdough, sort of). It is great fun for kids (and big kids).

Mixture 1

  • 8 oz White Glue (Elmers or whatever)
  • 3/4 C Warm Water
  • 2 drops of Food Coloring (I used 2 blue and 2 red to make Eden's favorite color)
Mixture 2
  • 4 t Borax Laundry Booster
  • 1 1/3 C Warm Water
In a separate bowl, mix the borax with the water. Pour mixture 1 into mixture 2. Do not stir. Wait one minute. Knead mixtures together (pour of excess water) and play!

Store your slime in a ziplock or plastic container (with a lid) in the refrigerator. Slime can get moldy so store it properly and throw out after a few uses.

Here is Eden playing with her slime. She told me she had made a necklace. Obviously...
