I had no idea it was so easy to make your own slime, customizable with your own cool colors – even glow in the dark!
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup glue (a type like Elmer’s)
1 teaspoon Borax
1 cup water
Food coloring / Glow in the dark paint
Wooden stirring stick (a chopstick is what I used)
In a bottle mix the cup of water with the teaspoon of Borax. In a bowl mix the 1/2 cup water with the 1/2 cup glue – add your color and/or glow in the dark paint to your liking. Now slowly poor a bit of the water/borax solution in and stir with your stick. Keep stirring and pouring a little bit at a time. You should see the slime glob forming quickly. Keep dribbling the borax/water out into the glue/water mixture until you are happy. Roll into a ball and let the memories of putting 25 cents into the toy machine flood over you.
Note: Do not get this on carpet, fabrics etc. it will stain and get all gushed into the fibers.
