Slime, what kid doesn’t like to get messy and play with slime? It’s a different texture than most anything you come across outside, or inside for that matter.
I admit, I played with this a for a few minutes before putting it away for the girls to play with after nap.
This ^^ is all I used, and actually not the 1/2 cup measuring cup.
1 cup water mixed with 1 tsp borax. I used warm water to insure the borax mixed/dissolved easily.
1/2 cup glue mixed with 1/2 cup water, add your food colouring.
Mix the two together. I wish I could have gotten a picture of the glue mixing with the borax/water solution as I poured the glue in. A quick stir and …
There was still water left in the cup so don’t worry if you have left-over water.
Austin was not into touching it let alone playing with it when I first opened the container. In fact, she got up and walked away.
Brookland loved it right away.
Seeing little sister having fun brought her around.
It feels a bit wet to the touch, but isn’t wet.
Both played with it until Momma got cold enough to go back inside. (With no taste tasting for Brookland!)
Notice we are outside again? Yeah, I love making messes with my kids, but I love it more when there is no virtually no clean up.
Note: I made this again for the first time in a few months and something different happened. It didn’t become the same consistence right away as it did in the above post. I’m not sure what I did different could just be the water for all I know but after working it in my hands for a few minutes all was well. 🙂
Hope you all have enjoyed this Messy fun.
