Learn how to make slime with Annelise and Julia. We've tested and perfected this recipe so that you will have only good results. This is also a fun craft for a kids party or play date. Expect many hours of fun and laughter! Happy Crafting!

You will need:

White school glue

Food coloring (gel or liquid) - only need a few drops

1 tsp. Borax (found on the laundry aisle of the grocery store)

1 cup warm water for the Borax

Warm water to fill glue bottles

A bowl and spoon

We have made a LOT of slime with very mixed results. After much testing and tossing of slime, we figured out the secret: it's in the amount of Borax water used. Too much and your slime breaks instead of stretching. Too little and your slime will stick to everything. Add the Borax water in small increments and mix or knead well for a minute or so before adding more. We start with 3 tablespoons of Borax water and then add about 1 tsp. at a time until we get the consistency we like.

FYI: While we obviously wouldn't give this to a very small child who may eat it, we do feel that it is fine to play with. Of course, it's a good idea to wash your hands when you are finished.

Slime will stick to your clothes, however, we've had it wash out easily every time with no permanent staining or damage. For this purpose, though, we suggest you don't go overboard on the food coloring.

Slime will store for weeks, and possibly months, in a sealed bag.
