Fun for kids to play with (NOT EAT!!)

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 12 cup white glue
  • 6 tablespoons water
  • food coloring
  • 1 -4 teaspoon borax
  • 1 -4 tablespoon water


  1. Mix the glue, 6 tablespoons water and food coloring until it is dissolved.
  2. In a separate bowl, dissolve 1 teaspoon borax into 1 tablespoon water.
  3. Add to the glue solution.
  4. You will get a very thick clump of slime when the two mix.
  5. Pull the clump of slime out of the glue mixture and put it in a separate bowl.
  6. Mix another batch of the borax solution and add to the remaining glue mixture.
  7. Repeat until all the glue mixture is used (about 3-4 times).
  8. With clean hands, knead the slime to mix.
  9. This will take about 10 minutes and is not very difficult as the slime easily separates between your fingers.
  10. If a looser, more slimy texture is desired knead in a bit more water.
  11. The more water you add, the slimier it gets.
  12. The slime doesn't leave a residue and doesn't get stuck on anything.
  13. Store in an airtight container.
  14. This can easily be doubled, tripled or quadrupled.
