Homemade Slime

Homemade Slime

Making slime is a big craze with all the kids at the moment, so with school holidays coming up I thought I would share an easy slime recipe with you all.

Now there’s been a bit of speculation over the internet recently about slime not being safe when made with Borax, but you only use a tiny amount and it’s best to dilute in water before adding to the rest of the mixture. If your super cautious wear rubber gloves while making the slime, just keep an eye open when younger children are making it. Parental supervision is advised.

Suitable for children age 3 and up, Slime is not eatable.

Homemade Slime

2/3 cup PVA glue

3 tsp water

2 drops food coloring or 2 tbsp glitter

1 cup warm water

1/2 tsp borax (available from Bin inn or Bunnings Warehouse)

Add glue and first amount of water to a mixing bowl, mix well.

Add coloring or glitter, mix

Add borax to the cup of warm water, mix till dissolved.

Add borax mixture to the glue mixture.

Mix and knead till fully incorporated, takes a little while to come together.

Store in an airtight container.

Slime lasts for a few months.
