First you must get all the ingredients.

  • Water
  • 1 bowl
  • Food Coloring
  • Mixing Spoon

Step 1: Let's Begin

Get your bowl and mix 1 ounce of glue. This is about 1/4 of the glue bottle. Also, add 1/4 cup of water. To make colored slime you want to add the food coloring now to the glue and water mixture. If you want to make glitter slime add your glitter now. Feel free to stir with your hands or with your spoon.

Step 2: Stir in Borax

Now you are going to add the Borax solution to the glue and water mixture. When you do this make sure you stir slowly so the ingredients do not splatter out of the bowl.

Step 3: Slime Is Forming

The slime forms immediately. While doing this you can notice the consistency is changing dramatically with the ingredients. If you use your hands you can feel the change happening before you.

Step 4: Keep Kneading

You want to stir as much as you can. At this point you will want to dig and knead with your hands until it gets less sticky. This is when you get to start forming the slime as the two compounds start to bond. If you have leftover water in the bowl you can dump it out.

Step 5: How to Store Your Slime

When you are done you want to store the slime in a plastic baggie. Just be careful because it can be very messy.

In step #2 you mention Borax which isn't on your ingredients list.
You do have "Sta-Flo" liquid starch though. Is that what is suppose to be used in step #2?
