How to Make Slime

Slime Making Instructions

  1. Start with 1 cup of water in a bowl, and mix in the entire 8 oz. bottle of your glue. 

  2. Mix in your food color that you would like your slime to be. 

  3. Whisk this all together, and adjust the color as you see fit.

  4. Start with 1 and 1/3 cups of hot water. It needs to be hot. Mix in 4 tablespoons of your Borax, and whisk that together until the Borax totally dissolves. 

  5. Grab your mixture of green slime and pour it into the hot water and Borax misture. 

  6. Take your slime all out of the bowl of water and place it on the table. Begin kneeding it for a while and wipe away the excess water on the surface you are kneeding it on.
