Homemade slime!! (Or “ooey gooey goo” as my kids called it)


A fun, cheap, ooey gooey activity for the kids is: homemade SLIME!!  Thanks for the inspiration, here!

This is a great little hands-on play time for the kids, (especially boys, I’m sure!) full of sensory fun!  You only need 2 INGREDIENTS, plus a little food coloring.  Here’s how: (please forgive the quality of my pictures, I took them with my phone.)

Its so easy and requires only 2 ingredients:
-2 to 3 bottles of clear Elmer’s glue
-liquid starch (can find on the detergent aisle w other starches.  A half gallon jug was $3 at HEB grocery store.)

Directions:
Mix equal parts glue and starch.  I used 2 – 5oz bottles of glue which rendered 1 1/4 cup (10 oz), so I used 1 1/4 cup starch too.  Pour together in a bowl and start mixing!  You will likely have to use your hands and it takes a few minutes.  When you get tired of it, plop a pile in a bowl for the kid and let them finish the job!

 

First the glue…

Then, Liquid Starch…

Now, get your “stir” on!  Hands will be needed… Take your rings off!!

Its a little chunky and weird at first…just keep stirring.

Get your hands in there!  We are making progress!

*you can use a few drops of food coloring dye (3 to 5 is sufficient).  Have fun!
