Who doesn’t like sticky, gooey, colorful slime? I know my boys love it! I hate spending $1-2 on it though! Here is a way to make it at home for way less $ using only 4 ingredients.
First dissolve 1 teaspoon of Borax in 1 cup of water. Set aside.
In a medium mixing bowl empty a 4 ounce bottle of Elmer’s Glue. You can use the clear or white glue.
Add 4 ounces of water to the glue.
Now the fun part! Add the Borax/water and watch as slime begins to form! Just keep stirring the mixture. Use your hands…or better yet have the kids stir!
The final product!
