Are you looking for something fun to make with your kids? Lynette, a Northwest Arkansas mom of two, shared this “recipe” that her mom shared with her.
“Last time I made it, it got moldy after a couple of weeks, but I think something from the kitchen table must have gotten into it while the kids played with it. The other batches I’ve made lasted for months in Zip-loc bags,” Lynette said.
Here’s how to make your very own slime:
1 1/2 cups warm water
2 cups Elmers white glue (apparently it must be Elmer’s glue)
Food coloring of choice
Mix these 3 things together until completely dissolved
4 teaspoons borax (can be found in the laundry detergent aisle)
1 1/3 cups warm water
Mix these 2 things together until completely dissolved
Pour solution A into solution B. Do not mix!
Lift slime out and knead into shape.
Another tip: If you are going to halve the recipe, use only half of solution A and mix the whole amount of solution B. The results will be the same. Do not double the recipe and do not reuse solution B.
