Method 1: Traditional Borax Recipe

Recipe adapted from A Spark of Creativity

•           2 Tsp Borax

•           1 1/2 Cups Water

•           1 Bottle of Elmer’s Glue

•           10 drops Green Food Coloring

•           Glitter

•           Mason jar and reCAP Mason jar lid

1.  Grab a small mixing bowl and pour in 1 cup of water and 2 tsp of borax powder. Stir the ingredients together until well blended. Set your bowl aside.

2.  In your medium sized bowl pour in your entire bottle of elmer’s white glue and pour in 1/2 cup of water. Stir until well blended. Once the contents are stirred together, add in 10 drops of green food coloring.

3.  Mix the products together.

4.  Pour in a lot of glitter and stir it together with your glue mixture.

5.  Now pour in the contents of your small bowl right into the middle and wait for the products to become     solid.

6.  Use both your hands and start squishing the slime together to make it more solid. Form it into a ball away from the liquid and pour out the contents into the sink. The slime is now ready to play with. Once you’re done playing with the slime, store it in a Mason jar capped with a reCAP FLIP or POUR Mason jar lid to keep it fresh!
