Beth Anderson's Take
Slime is so much fun to play with, but buying it at the store is expensive for the little amount you get. Why not make it at home for pennies.


  • 1/2 tsp Borax

  • 1 cup Warm water

  • 4oz Bottle of glue(white or clear)

  • Two bowls

  • Food Coloring

  • Whisk

  • Spoon


  • In one bowl mix 3oz warm water with the glue and mix till smooth.

  • Add food cloring in your choice of color and mix.

  • In the other bowl mix 6oz of warm water with the Borax till the Borax is disolved.

  • Add the glue mixture to the Borax mixture. Using your hands mix the slime till smooth.

  • Store slime in plactic baggy.

I hope your kids enjoy playing with their homemade creation! For step by step directions, just watch our kid friendly how-to video below.
