Fun Friday: Stuck Inside…Make Slime

I suggest that you be the primary creator of the slime, however, toward the end of the directions, your children may take part in completing the recipe.
- White Glue
- Liquid Starch (like Sta-Flo…can be found in laundry section of any store)
- ½ measuring cup
- Spoon for stirring
- Food Coloring
- Measure ½ cup of water and ½ cup of glue and pour each into the first bowl.
- Add your choice of food coloring to the desired color shade.
- Mix with the spoon until ingredients are completely combined.
- Measure ½ cup of liquid starch and pour into the second bowl.
- Slowly pour, a little at a time, the liquid starch into the glue/water mixture, stirring as you pour. As you stir, the mixture will become more solid-like and feel cold to touch (it shouldn’t be sticky).
- When all ingredients begin to combine into a “glob”, use your hands to finish mixing the ingredients until thoroughly mixed together. Imagine kneading a ball of dough. This step is a perfect place for children to take over. As they knead the slime it will become more combined.
TIP 1: If too hard, add more glue. If too sticky, add more liquid starch.
TIP 2: Rub some oil on your hands to prevent any food coloring from dying your hands the first time you mix the Slime.
- Time to Play! When finished, let your children explore and play with the Slime. After they are done, you can store in a Ziploc bag for up to a week before the slime needs to be discarded. Label the bag with the date to help remind you.
Stay tuned for another Fun Friday craft coming soon. Next up…Oobleck! Now, this non-Newtonian substance will really blow your child’s mind (and maybe even your own).
