Step 1: Gather Materials

You will need:

1 Tablespoon Vegetable Oil
1 Cup Flour
1/2 Cup Water
1/4 Cup Salt (If it is coarse it will mold more like play dough)
Food Color (optional)
Spoon
Bowl

Step 2: Combine Flour and Water

Combine 1 cup flour with 1/2 cup water and the food coloring (optional). You will notice the mixture already becoming slime-like, this is called oobleck.

Step 3: Add All Ingredients

Now you will add in the 1 tablespoon oil and 1/4 cup salt. For the blue one I used crushed up Epsom salt. For the purple one I added a bit more Epsom salt that is not crushed up. The purple turned out to be more like play dough less like slime.

Step 4: Less Sticky

For the finishing touch add some more flour. This will depend on how sticky your dough is. For the purple with more salt I added less flour and blue I added more. It also depends on your preference of how sticky or non-sticky you like it.

Step 5: Done

You have created what I like to call slime dough! It seems to mold like play dough but is soft just like slime. I even added some into a balloon to create a squishy and moldable stress ball.
