Green Slime

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! To celebrate we are making some green slime.

You will need:

Borax 1tsp

PVA Glue 1/2 cup

Green food colouring



In another container pour PVA glue (you can use clear or white) and add 1/2 cup of water and some food colouring. Mix it all up.

Start by dissolving the borax in a cup of water (I didn’t let the girls do this as it’s poisonous!)DSCN5255

Then pour the borax solution into the glue mixture. Watch as it changes!
Oh so exciting…. it starts a funky magical process of change before your eyes. My girls were squealing when they saw the consistency thicken!

You can knead the mixture and then tip away the excess water so you are left with a green blob of slime!

The girls played with this for ages and really loved the whole experience. Hope you enjoy it too!
