SLIME!!!

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.

Stir water and glue together until well blended.

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!

I noticed there seemed to be a lot of excess water in the bowl. I gave a handful of slime to each boy then used the rest of the slime to absorb the water.
