Homemade Slime!

It’s been a minute since my last blog post…sorry about that! With the holidays, a brand new year upon us, and some sicknesses floating around I lost track of time!

This homemade slime activity is something my family and I discovered that we really love doing together, dad included! We enjoyed it so much that we had to go back to the store and buy more glue a couple of times, lol! The ingredients needed are: Borax, Elmer’s Glue, food coloring, and water.

Start by mixing 1/2 cup of warm water with a tablespoon of Borax so it can begin dissolving. It won’t all completely dissolve, but that’s ok!

Then you want to take a separate bowl and add two 4 ounce bottles of Elmer’s Glue to it. Once they are empty fill both bottles with water and dump that into the bowl with the glue so you have equal parts glue to water.

Add a few drops of food coloring to your glue mixture and mix it around until everything is well incorporated.

Then slowly poor your Borax mixture into the glue mixture and start stirring it with your whisk immediately. Once it starts incorporating you’ll need to use your hands to bring it all together. Mix and mix and mix and mix until all of the water is absorbed and you start to get a slime like texture. It’s fun to do with the kids!

Poor your slime onto some parchment paper to make sure it’s the right consistency before getting it all over your table. If the slime is right it won’t stick to anything!

Then break out the play doh cutters and whatever else you have and have some fun! Wilder absolutely loves this activity and we have made multiple colors and mixed them all together. The cool thing is that you can store the slime in a plastic container and reuse it over and over again! Have fun!!
