When it comes to slime, goo, and gak, the best place to make those are at HOME! I know what you are thinking, making slime has got to be messy. Trust me, it’s not the making, it’s the playing with, and that’s the ONLY reason to make slime!
Now this recipe has no borax but if you want something borax and starch free both you can try this how to make fluffy slime with saline solution recipe or this slime recipe without borax, which is another variation. Of course my favorite slimes are the sprinkle slimes like this Rainbow Burst Fluffy Slime! You can also use this simple 2 ingredient slime recipe for nearly EVERY slime that you make and then alter it for your needs, like aromatherapy, holiday slime, or sensory uses.
No matter what slime needs you have coming up, this is the one to save and then add too!
‘Perfect Slime Every Time’ Recipe
- 4oz of clear glue or 5oz of white school glue
- start with approx 1/4 cup liquid starch
- Food coloring (optional)
- Glitter (optional)
- Cups and craft sticks for mixing
Directions for Slime Recipe:
Pour glue into a cup (red solo cups work great for this), add the tbsp. of water, food coloring and glitter and mix well with the craft stick.
Add liquid starch.
Keep stirring and it will start to form. Then take out of the cup and begin kneading.
If the slime is too sticky, add a little bit of starch at a time (about 1 tsp or less)
Store in sealed container
Slime without Borax
PRO TIP: Many people do not like to deal with borax and water when making slime. I don’t because its unpredictable and can be dangerous. You can also make slime by using LIQUID STARCH and glue. It’s a ton easier. Just mix about 1tsp in 4 oz of glue and add starch little by little until you get the slime consistency you want. Once it’s set, then separate the white slime and dye the colors you want in solo cups.
It can be pretty hard to find liquid starch, so pick this one up here (it’s the one I use) as well as a huge thing of glue so you can make tons of slime for all occasions. Buying this way is a lot more cost effective and once you start making slime, you will def want to have glue on hand!
Now that you have the slime recipe, what now? I am sure you do not want just white gooey slime without a purpose! Because it’s (right now at the time of this post) near Halloween, I wanted to give you something to do with it!
