This was so quick and easy.... And provided hours of play time... You can't beat that for a snowy evening inside! On my way home from picking up all the kids from school we stopped by the store and bought four bottles of Elmer's School Glue, or one per kid. Glue was only $1.30... Can't beat that!
We used borax that we used on another project I'm not sure I ever ended up blogging about! So it was perfect that we had it on hand. All you do, is in a bowl mix 1 teaspoon into 1 cup water, stir until borax quickly dissolves. I think the kids (ages 3-7) all loved this because they were able, with supervision to do this all by themselves.
Then pour out the full 4 oz glue bottle into 1/2 cup water, add food coloring to make any color you like. Stir until color and glue is completely diluted. Then mix borax water and glue water together... Slime will immediately begin to take shape.... Drain out excess water... And voila!
Slime! Perfect for newspaper copying... Or as the kids called it, the Alien Gazette! Clever!
Then of course I had to send a picture to my brother because he hates this stuff!
