I attempted to make slime a few months ago but it didn’t quite work out for us…we used the cheap roseart glue over the elmers school glue and it was just a liquid mess. This time we used the real stuff: Elmer’s School Glue!! and IT WORKED!! I think I was more excited then my son but that was because he was more interested in watching Phineas & Ferb: The Movie then helping!
1 4oz bottle of Elmer’s School Glue; White or Clear
4 oz of water
1 cup water
2 tsp borax
Food Coloring: we used the neon green
Pour out glue into a bowl. Fill glue bottle with 4 oz of water and mix in with the glue. Stir and add in food color.
Mix 1 cup water with 1-2 tsp borax and stir to combine. (sorry no pic of this one)
Slowly pour glue mixture into the borax bowl. stirring while pouring.
Pick up the slime that forms into your hands and knead it. (toss the excess water left in the bowl) Slime will become more firm the more you play with it!
(you can add more water or flour as needed to make it the consistency of glue)
PAINT!! (We will post pics of our art designs once we start painting!)
