Today we attempted slime

Definitely 5 stars. They turned down playing with the neighbor kids to make slime with mom. I know that Sunday is mother's day on the calendar, but in my world, I beg to differ!

Here is the recipe we used and we got it from here

What you'll need:

  • Wire whisk
  • 1 cup all purpose glue
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon tempera paint, your choice of color
  • Borax

How to make it:

  1. Mix together with wire whisk the all purpose glue, water, and tempera paint. I used the powdered tempera, but the liquid works just as well -- just don't mix the powdered too thin.
  2. Mix separately 1/3 c. water and 1/2 tsp. borax. Slowly pour borax mix into glue mix.
  3. Let stand a few minutes, then knead. Pour off any remaining liquid. Store in plastic bags.
  4. Repeat for different colors.


As in all recipes, results can vary depending on humidity, conditions, etc. Please try any recipe out before attempting in a group setting.

Then, of course our pictures from the event...



Look at that face!


In this one you will notice that I circled a peice of slime in the process of falling off the table. How cool is that capture? A priceless smile and a priceless moment in time captured "on film".
