Ooey Gooey Slime

When I was a kid we would go to the $2 shop and were allowed to buy whatever we wanted. My cousin and I would search, and search for the perfect toy (piece of junk) but without fail almost every time we would walk out with a tube of slime. I don't know what drew us to it, but it is a fond childhood memory that we often reminisce about...our trips to the the $2 shop to buy slime.
Making slime is surprisingly simple. I made some for Auron awhile ago and just like his mother he is a slime lover! It provided the perfect sensory experience for him and not to mention a super cool science experiment. This activity is sure to entertain and thrill the toddlers all the way through to old grandpa!

Slime Science Experiment


1/2 C School glue/PVA glue/white glue (whatever you call it, its thick and white and comes in a bottle)
1 1/2 C Water
Food Colouring
1 Teaspoon Borax


  1. In a bowl mix glue, 1/2 C of water and food colouring until smooth. Set bowl aside.
  2. In another bowl dissolve the borax in the remaining 1 C of water.
  3. While gently stirring the glue mixture slowly add the water mixture.
  4. The glue will immediately change consistency.
  5. Continue to stir until you get the consistency you like and the mixture isn't sticky. 
  6. You may not need to use all the water mix.
  7. Get your hands in there and knead it and squish it around. 
  8. ENJOY!

Gosh look at that wild hair!
