Cook:

40 Min

Ingredients

1 tsp
borax powder
1 1/2 c
water, divided
1/2 c
elmer's glue
food coloring

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Add borax powder to 1 cup of water and stir to dissolve. Set aside. Pour glue into a medium mixing bowl and add 1/2 C water. Add a few drops of food coloring until desired color is reached and then stir to mix glue solution until smooth.
2
Pour the borax mixture into the glue mixture and watch the solids start to form. Stir for a few moments and then use your hands to gather the mass.
3
The mixture will be very soft and wet. Keep kneading until it firms up and feels dry. Discard excess liquid in bowl.
4
The more you knead and play with the slime the firmer it will become. Store in a Ziploc bag or air tight container and the slime will keep indefinitely.
