2 Slime Recipes for Halloween

I found a couple of slime recipes for those of you who would like to use it for Halloween.  Enjoy.

 

Recipe #1

Ingredients:

  • Warm water
  • Elmer’s or White craft glue
  • Borax (found in the laundry section at the store)
  • Green food coloring
  • 2 bowls

Directions:

  1. Mix together 3/4 cup warm water, 1 cup glue and several drops of green food coloring into a bowl.
  2. In the second bowl, mix 4 teaspoons borax and 1 1/3 cups warm water.
  3. Pour the contents of the first bowl into the second bowl and do not stir. Let the mixture sit for about one minute.
  4. Remove the newly created slime out of the blow and divide into sections for the kids.
  5. Store in zip-lock baggies or tightly-sealed jars.

Recipe #2
Difficulty: Easy
Time Required: 15 mins

Directions

  1. Pour the glue into the jar. If you have a big bottle of glue, you want 4 oz or 1/2 cup of glue.
  2. Fill the empty glue bottle with water and stir it into the glue (or add 1/2 cup of water).
  3. If desired, add food coloring. Otherwise, the slime will be an opaque white.
  4. In a separate, mix one cup (240 ml) of water into the bowl and add 1 teaspoon (5 ml) of borax powder.
  5. Slowly stir the glue mixture into the bowl of borax solution.
  6. Place the slime that forms into your hands and knead until it feels dry. (Don’t worry about the excess water remaining in the bowl.)
  7. The more the slime is played with, the firmer and less sticky it will become.
  8. Have fun!
  9. Store your slime in a zip-lock bag in the fridge (otherwise it will develop mold).

Tips:

  1. Use white glue, such as Elmer’s brand. Most ‘school glues’ do not have the correct composition.
  2. Don’t eat the slime – it isn’t especially toxic, but not good for you either!
  3. Slime cleans up pretty easily. Remove dried slime after soaking with water.
