Kid Craft: how to make homemade slime.

 Are your kids always on the lookout for a new craft to do at home? Well, here's a surprisingly easy project to do with your kiddos, and its cheap and easy! This slime has provided my kids with hours of fun! It was fun to do, especially around Halloween time. We made it about a week ago, and its still moist and perfect for them to play with. It was fun having a science experiment going on in our kitchen.

 Here's how to make Homemade Slime:

you'll need-
2 tsp Borax
2 cups water
1 cup glue (about 2 bottles)
1 cup water
food coloring

Mix the borax and water in a bowl.
Mix the glue, water and food coloring in a separate bowl.
Now mix the ingredients of both bowls together.
That's it! 
Store in a ziploc bag.

*I found Borax in the laundry aisle at Target. It was only $3. We now have enough to last for a lifetime of homemade slime!
*If you use the transparent glue, your slime will turn out shiny. I'm trying this next time!
*Make sure your kids know that this is not edible!!!
*Here's a link to the video I watched to learn how to make this:

 I told the kids it was troll bogies (Harry Potter, anyone?) They thought it was hilarious!

  1. This looks like so much fun! My son would love this! I am definitely pinning this!

  2. I think my oldest would really enjoy this, but my middle girl is not a fan of getting messy. :) Thanks for sharing!

  3. I am going to send my hubby to get Borax. My boy is going to love this.

  4. This looks fun! I used to hate slime when I was a kid, but I think it was the neon green color that it came in. I could probably deal with white :)

  5. I was looking for a slime recipe for our monster theme this week - this is perfect!

    Would love for you to share on the sunday showcase my child centered linky party (open sat thru thurs.) -


  6. I did this one time in like 4th grade. I've always wondered the recipe for it! Thanks for sharing :)


Thanks for your comment. Have a great day!
