Make Your Own Slime

Make Your Own Slime

This is a very easy project to do.  I still remember as a kid, there were those machines in the front of the grocery store where you could buy slime for a quarter!  You can make your own at home with three simple ingredients.

If you have trouble finding liquid starch, try craft stores, such as Michael’s, JoAnn’s, or Hobby Lobby.

Make Your Own Slime

You will need:

~ 1/4 cup glue (such as Elmer’s glue)

~ 1/4 cup water

~ 1/4 cup liquid starch

~ A mixing bowl and something to mix with

~ Food coloring (optional)

First, mix together the glue and the water.

Then add your liquid starch.

Mix until blended, adding in the food coloring while you mix.

I added about 4 drops to get a light purple color.

I added 6 drops of blue to get a darker blue color.

This slime will not stick to hands or hard things, and we had no issues with it staining hard surfaces, but keep it away from fabrics (clothes, rugs, etc).

While this does not contain borax, I always supervised my kids when they used slime when they were younger, and I still always have them wash their hands after using slime –  no matter what the ingredients.
