Slime

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.

Notes:

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...

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".
