Fun & Frugal Summer Activities for Kids #16 Homemade Slime!

I can remember back in the day, (ok waaay back in the day) watching Double Dare on Nickelodeon.  I always wanted to go on the show just so I could get slimed!  

Much to my delight, I have recently learned that you can make your own slime right in your kitchen.  It is actually a pretty simple recipe.  

  • Borax
  • Elmer's School Glue 
  • Food Coloring (may I suggest green!) 
  • Water

  1. Starting with a 1/2 cup of water in a bowl, add your entire bottle of glue.
  2. Add your food coloring and mix well. 
  3. Heat 1 cup of water and then add slowly add the Borax, 1 tsp at a time until it will no longer dissolve. About 4 tsp.
  4. Pour your Borax mixture into the glue mixture and stir well. 
  5. After mixing, it will start clumping up. 
  6. Drain off any excess water by squishing it around in your hands for a few minutes until it is no longer sticky.
  7. Squish it, mush it, roll it!  Have a blast with it!

New Nostalgia has a slime recipe that produce really pretty colors, it uses Kool Aid.



Have Fun!
