    Before I retired, we teachers went through a crazy time with kids carrying packets of slime all throughout the school. Now that I have seen this instructable, I really get it. Besides, it’s waaaayyyy too much fun not to enjoy!!

    This is cool :) I would suggest using paint instead of food coloring, that way it doesn't stain your hands :)
