Messy party ideas part 2: Homemade slime

Part 2 of our messy party ideas is, but of course, a recipe for homemade slime!Homemade Slime Recipe - Messy Party Ideas Food Coloring & Borax

1. Mix together 3/4 cup warm water, 1 cup glue and several drops of green food coloring (or another color if you prefer) in the first bowl.

2. In the second bowl, mix together 4 teaspoons borax and 1 1/3 cups warm water.

3. Pour the contents of the first bowl into the second, but don’t stir. Let it sit for 1 minute, then lift the now-congealed slime out of the bowl.

4. Divide slime so that each child has a piece to play with. The glue in slime can make it stick to certain fabrics. To minimize accidents, give each little monster a zip-top bag to store it in.

SAFETY NOTE: Since borax is toxic in large doses, be sure to keep the slime away from kids younger than age three.
