- 2 mixing bowls
- 8 ounces of ElmerÍs glue (Sue Says: for this particular project, you must use ElmerÍs glue!)
- Cold water
- Hot water
- Green and yellow food coloring
- 1 tablespoon Borax (Sue Says: you can find this product in the laundry detergent aisle.)
- Resealable plastic bag or covered plastic container
Mix one cup cold water with 8 ounces of ElmerÍs glue in one mixing bowl.
In the other mixing bowl, mix 1 tablespoon of Borax with _ cup of very hot water. Stir well until the Borax is dissolved. (Sue Says: make sure the water is very hot, but not boiling!)
Add 10 drops of the green food coloring into the Borax-water mixture. Repeat this with yellow food coloring.
Slowly add the hot Borax-water mixture to the ElmerÍs glue-water mixture. Stir with a spoon for a few seconds.
Using your hands, reach into the bowl and mix everything together. (Sue Says: in less than a minute, you will have a gooey, non-sticky, stretch material.)
Store the slime in a resealable plastic bag or covered plastic container. (Sue Says: you can keep the goop for several weeks as long as you refrigerate it when the kiddos arenÍt playing with it!)
