Making slime is a great activity to do with kids. My kids love to help make it, but they love to play with it even more. This is my go to, no fail, slime recipe. Making it rainbow slime makes it even more fun! Follow along as I show you how to make slime – and make sure to check out the how-to video below.
- 2 Large Glass Bowls
- 4 oz of School Glue
- 4 oz plus 1 cup Very Warm Water (Note that water measurement does not need to be exact)
- Soap Dye Coloring
- Glass or Plastic Jar for Storage
Step three. In another glass bowl, mix 1 teaspoon of Borax into 1 cup of water.
Slowly add the glue mixture to the Borax mixture.
Step four. Stir in until the slime starts to come together. At first it will be really wet and gooey, then it becomes stringy and sticky, but the more you mix and time passes the mixture will come together. This process will makes white slime.
Step five: To make rainbow slime, add soap coloring and glitter to the white slime and mix. At first it will seem like the color is not mixing in, but keep mixing and the color will meld with the slime.
I hope you enjoyed this how to make slime tutorial and round up the kids to make some today!
