Even my 2 year old participated! What great fun! Interested in making some?
1 teaspoon Borax
2 cups water
2 cups white glue
Here are the instructions:
Dissolve Borax in 1/2 cup of water. Stir the mixture and then set it aside.
Mix 2 cups of white glue with 1 1/2 cups water in another bowl. Add food coloring, if desired. Kids seem to like a nice lime green color, which resembles snot.
Pour the Borax solution into the glue mixture. Mix together until a thick gelatin is formed.
Knead the slime for about 5 minutes. The more it is kneaded, the drier and less sticky it becomes.
Store the slime in a plastic baggie or container, otherwise it will mold.
What a great hands on Science experiment to see how the properties of the materials change! They loved it!
