Introduction: How to Make Slime (Ninja Turtle Ooze)
Step 1: Watch the Video!
Hey, look at this! There's a broken canister of mutant ooze leaking down into the sewers! But don't worry because this sticky slime is non-toxic, and it's so easy to make, a 3 year old can do it!
Watch this video to see how!
Step 2: Gather These Materials
Inspired by Dr. Anne Helmenstine with About.com, my kids and I found, and slightly modified, a recipe for making slime!
My kids went crazy for it! It's great stuff because it's basically harmless and extremely easy to make. So easy in fact, that my little 3-year-old did it himself (with a little coaching, of course).
If you'd like to make it at home, here's how we did it!
Step 1: Gather Your Materials
You will need:
* 1/2 teaspoon borax laundry booster (Found in grocery stores in the laundry detergent section)
* 5 ounces clear school glue (Usually in the craft section of some grocery stores, or stores like Wal-Mart)
* Green and yellow food coloring
Step 3: Make the Solutions
Make Solution "A"
In one container, mix:
* 1 cup of warm water
* 1/2 tsp of borax
Stir to dissolve as much as possible.
Make Solution "B"
In a separate container, mix together:
* 1/2 cup of water
* Entire 5 oz bottle of clear glue
* Stir in 2 drops of green food coloring
* Stir in 5 drops of yellow food coloring
Step 4: Mix the Solutions
Pour Solution "A" into Solution "B"
And right before your eyes will magically appear a gooey green flubber!
Holding this in front of a light makes it look like some sort of creepy alien experiment!
Step 5: Make a Cool Ooze Canister
I wanted to make a fun container for this ooze, and using these materials, came up with this one.
*2 black 2" ABS clean-out adaptors
*2 black 2" ABS plugs from Home Depot.
For the tube;
*2" tube of acrylic (7" tall) works best,
*Plastic soda bottle
Step 6: Make It Glow
With the ooze inside the container, I tried adding a yellow glow-stick to see what effect it would have.
It made the slime glow an eerie green light and makes it look radio-active!
I also noticed that putting the glow stick in the microwave for 4 seconds could make it glow 3 times as bright!
Step 7: Other Projects
That's how to make your very own Ninja Turtle Ooze.
