So, for Make it Monday we made colored slime! We have made slime before, but this time we used white glue instead of clear glue, making the colors more vibrant. We also used food coloring gel which also made brighter colors.
What you need:
1. white glue
2. gel food coloring
3. liquid starch
4. small mixing bowls
What to do:
The recipe calls for equal parts glue and liquid starch. I find it works best if you pour the desired amount of glue then slowly add the liquid starch until it is the right consistency. You don't want it to stick to your fingers when you play with it. But you also don't want it too greasy and fall apart (which will happen if you add too much liquid starch). Then you add the color and mix!
|It can get stringy and stretch!|
|You can roll it into a ball or...|
|you can stretch it out like spaghetti!!|
|And you can mix the colors to make new colors!|
|Or make marbled colors!|
You can keep the slime in an air tight container and play with it again and again, or make new colors and mix with the old colors. This is something we always have on hand :)
