Slime is easy to make. It only takes a few ingredients and a few minutes to make a batch.

REMEMBER- This slime is not toxic, but it isnt exactly food either!

Step 1: Gather Your Slime Ingredients

Slime is easy to make. It only takes a few ingredients and a few minutes to make a batch. To get started, gather the following materials:

-water
-white glue (like Elmer's)
-borax
-food coloring- Any colour is fine (unless you want uncolored white slime

Step 2: Prepare the Slime Solutions

There are two components to slime. There is a borax and water solution and a glue, water, and food coloring solution. Prepare them separately.

-Mix 1 teaspoon borax in 1 cup of water, Stir until the borax is dissolved.
-In a separate container, mix 1/2 cup (4 oz) white glue with 1/2 cup water.
-Add food coloring, if desired.

Step 3: Mix the Slime Solutions

-After you have dissolved the borax and diluted the glue, you are ready to combine the two solutions.
-Stir one slime solution into the other.
-Your slime will begin to polymerize immediately.

Step 4: Finishing Off the Slime

-The slime will become hard to stir after you mix the borax and glue solutions.
-Try to mix it up as much as you can, then remove it from the bowl and finish mixing it by hand.

***It's okay if there is some colored water remaining in the bowl***

Step 5: Keep Your Slime

Store your slime in a sealed ziplock bag, preferably in the refrigerator. Insect pests will leave slime alone because borax is a natural pesticide, but you'll want to chill the slime to prevent mold growth if you live in an area with high mold count. The main danger to your slime is evaporation, so keep it sealed when you're not using it.

Step 6: Things to Do With Slime

Well, there are quite alot of things to do with your slime, but here are some that would be good for a halloween party:

-Lay it out on the table (Be careful- The food colouring may stain it)
-Let people play with it
-Do a lucky dip prank, and place the slime in the bottom of a cardboard box and then cover it with a towel or sheet, then tell them to reach inside and pick out a prize. They will be in for a surprise.

There are loads of other things to do, but they are just a few.

    Mine turned out a little hard after a few hours and if I pull it more then like 3 inches it brakes. I was wondering if there was anyway for me to make it more slimy?

    Borax is a skin and eye irritant folks and is actually quite toxic.

    Why would it be toxic if you could put it in your eyes and on your skin?
