How to Make Your Own Sticky Goo Slime

Materials Needed
  • Borax powder
  • Water
  • 4 ounces white glue (e.g. Elmer's white glue)
  • Teaspoon
  • Bowl
  • Measuring cup
  • Food coloring

Making slime, gak, goo or whatever you call it, is pretty easy to do. There are different formulas, but this one is my favorite.

Pour four ounces of white glue into a small bowl. Add a few drops of food coloring and stir them into the glue. You don't have to use food coloring, but I think it looks way cooler with it.

Next, stir in four ounces of water into the glue and mix thoroughly.

In a separate bowl, pour in one teaspoon full of borax powder. Add eight ounces of warm water (warm water makes it dissolve faster). Stir the solution until the borax is completely dissolved.

Now slowly pour the glue mixture into the borax solution. Keep stirring as you slowly add the glue. It helps to have a helper to pour while you stir.

The borax causes a chemical reaction to occur in the glue and it starts to coagulate. Take the slime out of the bowl and knead it in your hands.

Dump out any extra water and store you slime in a zip-lock bag to keep it fresh.
