Green Slime

There's nothing more fun than playing with goo; here, you can make your own slimy green gunge.


What You Need:
Enlarge Image Play in the slime with your own, handmade goo.
  • 2 mixing bowls
  • 8 ounces of Elmer's glue (must be Elmer's)
  • Green and yellow food coloring
  • Spoon for stirring
  • 1 tablespoon Borax (you can find this in the laundry detergent aisle)
  • Resealable plastic bag or clean plastic-covered container
Instructions:

1. Mix one cup cold water with 8 ounces of Elmer's Glue in one mixing bowl.

2. In a second bowl, mix 1 tablespoon of Borax with one-half cup of very hot water (not boiling). Stir well until the Borax is dissolved.

3. Add about 10 drops of each food coloring to the Borax-water mixture.

4. Slowly add the hot Borax-water mixture to the glue-water mixture. Stir with a spoon for a few seconds.

5. Using your hands, reach into the bowl and mix everything together. In less than a minute you'll have a gooey, nonsticky, stretchy material.

6. Store the goop in a resealable plastic bag or covered plastic container. You can keep the goop for several weeks as long as you refrigerate it when you're not playing with it.
