slime recipes



  • two mixing bowls
  • measuring cups and spoons
  • white glue
  • borax (in the laundry section of supermarkets)
  • green food coloring (optional)

Step 1: Mix 3/4 cup warm water, 1 cup glue and several drops green food coloring in the first bowl.

Step 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.

Tip: The glue in slime can make it stick to some fabrics. Also the food coloring will stain many surfaces make sure Slime stays in the kitchen or outdoors.


Mix ¼ cup water & ¼ cup white glue in a bowl.

Mix ¼ cup water & 1 tablespoon borax in another bowl. Stir borax mixture while adding glue mix.


Fill a coffee mug with about a quarter inch of acetone.

Place Styrofoam in the acetone. It should fizzle. Keep adding more Styrofoam until you reach a good sized blob. You can pick it up and play with it.

Stretchofoam can be washed if you don't wish to get acetone on your hands because it may dry your hands out, but it will lose some of it's stretchy properties.


Warm ½ cup nonfat milk (not hot). Pour in ¼ cup vinegar and stir.

Pour mixture through a disposable coffee filter. After the liquid has been strained you will see your Glop in the filter.

Mix 2 tablespoons liquid starch and 2 tablespoons white glue with hands until it forms a ball.
