This is an awesome “recipe” for slime. I would say the consistancy more like play-doh, just “slimier”. It’s simple to make, lasts for a long time (as long as you keep it in an airtight container) and the kids will have a blast with it. It does dry out after a while, but I think it lasts a long as play-doh.
1/2 cup Borax (available at the supermarket in the laundry section)
2 cups water
White glue, such as Elmer’s (I tried generic glue and it actually works better w/elmer’s)
1. Mix half a cup of Borax with two cups of water in a container with a lid. Shake thoroughly.
2. Mix a cup of glue with a cup of water in a bowl, and stir well.
3. Shake the Borax mixture thoroughly and put 3 tablespoons of it in a second bowl. Add 3/8 cup of the glue mixture and a few drops of food coloring. Stir, and the mixture will turn into a semi-liquid putty.
If any of you make it, let me know what you think!
