Glue + Borax + Water = THE COOLEST THING EVER!!
Excuse me while I run to the kitchen and become Super Mom in just MINUTES. Seriously, did anyone else know that it was this easy to create awesome slime for kids? There’s no need to order some random kit from an infomercial on TV, none of that two easy payments of $17.95 plus shipping and handling business in my house! Get that out of here. I’ve tried making slime before, but I had a bad recipe and my slime always ended up in a runny mess that stuck to everything. I gave up quickly…until I tried this recipe. It’s amazing and pretty much fool-proof.
The trick is to not add too much water, and to let the two separate mixtures become completely mixed together before you combine them. I made two batches. One was made with clear glue and the kids wanted to add the traditional green slime (one stuck a small plastic dinosaur in there). I made a second batch of slime while they were busy with the first batch out of white glue and pink and gold glitter. Let me tell you, it is a magical substance. It’s not that often that a video will make me stand up and literally DIY on the spot, but this one was totally worth it. You’re supposed to be able to keep the slime for a while, so we’ll see how long it lasts! Cool!
