Oooeeey goooey do-it-yourself slime


Slime, goo, putty, snot, ooze – whatever you want to call it, is a perfect fall activity for a lazy Sunday afternoon. With a few ingredients you’ll find around the house, you can make your very own slime that you’re kids will love. Not only will this do-it-yourself slime provide hours of slimy enjoyment, it’s also fun to make.

What you need:

  • 8 oz. bottle of white all-purpose glue
  • Borax (a boxed soap found in the grocery store)
  • Large mixing bowl
  • Small mixing bowl
  • Spoon
  • Measuring cup
  • Water
  • Food colouring
  • Paper towels (for clean up)

How to make your slime:

  1. Empty the entire bottle of white glue into your mixing bowl. Fill the empty bowl with water, shake, and pour the gluey water into the bowl.
  2. Add a few drops of food colouring.
  3. Add ½ cup warm water to the small mixing bowl and add a teaspoon of Borax to the water. Stir to mix.
  4. Slowly add the Borax mixture to the glue mixture, stirring constantly – as you stir, the combined mixtures will start to transform into slime.
  5.  Now you have a bowl full of slime to play with!
  6. When you’re finished, seal it in a zip-lock bag to play with another day.
