Homemade Slime Recipe Tutorial ( With Borax)

Great tutorials to make with the kiddos!!

If you can't find Borax don't worry,  I will be making soon a version without it.
If your kiddos have sensitive skin or if you don't want them handling Borax, you can still get them involved by helping you set everything up and making the glue mix while you (or any adult ) handle the Borax mix. 

Here is what you will need.

1 tablespoon of Borax
1 1/2 cups of water
1/2 of white glue (like Elmer's Glue )
2 or 3 bowls (if you use only 2, make sure one can hold over 2 cups of liquid)
Food coloring of your choice

First on one bowl, mix the glue with half a cup of water. If you wish to color your slime, now is the time. Keep in mind food coloring is concentrated (a little goes a long way) and that you will be adding more liquid to the mix which could lighten the color a bit.

On the second bowl mix one cup of water with the tablespoon of borax. Make sure is completely diluted.

Pour the two mixtures together and stir, stir, stir!

Stir quickly, it sets fast!

Now separate the slime from remaining liquid, there will always be left over liquid. Squeeze all the water out and knead for a while. 

There is my little helper! ;-)

To store it use a zip bag or airtight container.

Make sure to not let your kids mix the slime with play dough, or it will became a watery mess. Learned it the hard way.
