Slime




Supplies

  • 2 ts Guar Gum
  • 1 tb Borax
  • Water
  • Mixing bowl
  • Food colouring
  • 2 Empty plastic soda bottles to store the liquids
  • Zipper lock bag

    How To Make It

    1. Making The Borax Water: Borax is a type of powder soap that is available in most grocery stores. Add 1 tablespoon Borax powder to 1 cup of water. Stir until most of the powder dissolves. Store the Borax Water in a jar or bottle, and label the container "BORAX & WATER MIXTURE". One cup of Borax Water will make many batches of Slime.
    2. Preparing The Guar Gum: Available at health food stores. Measure 4 cups (approximately 1 litre) of warm water into a large mixing bowl. Add 10 drops of food colouring - possibly green! SLOWLY (very slowly) stir in 2 teaspoons of guar gum. This fine powder has a tendency to clump up if it is not stirred into the water slowly. After thoroughly mixing, pour the guar gum mixture into a soda bottle and label it appropriately.
    3. Making Slime: Pour 1/2 cup of the guar gum mixture into a clean zipper-lock bag. Add 1 teaspoon of the Borax Water mixture that you made previously. Seal the bag and shake. Within seconds you'll have prepared your very own batch of Slime!

    Notes:

    This gooey mixture will retain its slimy properties for 1-2 days before finally turning into a watery mess. When the Slime is no longer good, seal it in the zipper-lock bag and throw it away. Do not pour it down the drain.
