Here is what you will need:
- 2 cups of white glue
- 1 1/2 cups of warm water
- a few drops of food coloring of choice
- 2 tablespoons of glitter
- 1 cup of hot water
- 2 1/2 teaspoons of borax
In a large bowl combine the glue, the 1 1/2 cups warm water, the food coloring, and the glitter. Stir until combined.
Because of the glitter your hands will be covered after you squish it into slime. After it turns into slime the glitter doesn't tend to get all over though. I wasn't sure if we would end up with glitter hands and a table each time we played with the slime, but I've only seen the occasional lone glitter spec afterwards.
Store it in an air tight container and it lasts a nice long time. The Halloween slime we made would get dry around the edges eventually but I'd pick it off and toss those pieces and Aria could keep on playing with it.
Borax and glue aren't the best things for tummies so wait until the "put everything in your mouth" phase is over for this activity.
That big bottle of glue costs around 12 or 14, and you can make two slime recipes with it.
I modified my recipe from The Connection We Share.
