How to make slime
Wondering how to make slime? Making slime is a popular activity that can be done using a few different recipes, depending on the ingredients you have on hand and the type of slime you'd like to make. Here's a basic recipe for making slime using white school glue and borax:
- White school glue (like Elmer's) - 1 cup
- Borax (found in the laundry aisle of most grocery stores) - 1 teaspoon
- Water - 1.5 cups
- Food coloring (optional)
- Glitter or beads (optional for added texture and sparkle)
Instructions - Prepare Borax Solution - In a bowl, dissolve 1 teaspoon of borax into 1 cup of water. Stir until fully dissolved.
- Mix Glue Solution:
- In a separate bowl, pour out 1 cup of white school glue.
- Add 1/2 cup of water to the glue and stir until combined.
- (Optional) Add a few drops of food coloring to the glue mixture and stir until you achieve the desired color. You can also add glitter or beads at this stage if you'd like.
- Slowly add the borax solution to the glue mixture, a little at a time, while stirring.
- As you stir, the mixture should begin to thicken and come together.
- Once it's too tough to stir with a spoon, you can start kneading with your hands.
Knead the Slime
- Continue to knead the mixture in the bowl until it's no longer sticky and has a smooth, stretchy consistency.
- If it's too sticky, you can add a little more of the borax solution, but be careful not to add too much, or the slime can become too hard.
- Store your slime in an airtight container when you're not playing with it to keep it fresh.
- Always wash your hands after playing with slime.
- Borax should not be ingested. Always supervise children when making or playing with slime.
- If you're allergic or sensitive to any ingredients (like borax), you may want to look for alternative recipes or take precautions.
- Some people prefer using contact lens solution and baking soda instead of borax due to sensitivities or concerns about borax. Remember to always ensure that the contact lens solution contains boric acid, as this is the ingredient that activates the slime.
Now you know how to make slime. Have fun and enjoy your homemade slime!
