Let's Make Slime


slime recipe

Ooey, gooey slime.  Boys and girls both love playing with this mixture.  Of course, I think boys out number the girls in wanting to play around with slime, or goo as some people refer to it.

It's super simple to make in your kitchen and the kids can help.  All you need are two main ingredients and some food coloring.  We love a clear kind of look, so we don't add too much food coloring. 

Ingredients for Making Slime:

  • 1 cup clear glue
  • 1 cup liquid starch
  • Food coloring


Mix glue and starch together well. You can divide into 3 or 4 clumps and then add a different color food coloring to each, if desired.  Or add food coloring to the whole shebang and let the kids play with one color goo.

It's really fun ... it stretches and sticks together for some slimy fun.  When finished playing, just store in a closed container for another day.
