Kids love to play with slimy things. Unfortunately for their parents, many slimy things are unsanitary or messy. You can, however, make gobs of sanitary and easy-to-clean slime with your children by mixing together a few ingredients. One of the main ingredients is liquid starch, which people often use to make their laundry wrinkle-resistant and easier to iron. Keep in mind that you may want to hide the liquid starch well after showing your kids how to make this gooey toy with it.
Things You'll Need
- 1/4 cup white glue
- Large mixing bowl
- 1/4 cup water
- Wooden spoon
- Food coloring
- 1/4 cup liquid starch
Pour the white glue into the mixing bowl.
Add the water, and stir with the wooden spoon. Add six drops of food coloring. Mix thoroughly.
Stir in the liquid starch. Continue to stir the mixture until you are satisfied with the viscosity and texture. Add several more drops of liquid starch if your concoction is too sticky.
Store the slime in a plastic bag when you are not using it.
