SLIME “recipe” for you to invent at home

slimeimages.jpgAre 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:

Solution A:

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

Solution B:

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.
