Making slime :)

Selamat Hari Merdeka to all my fellow Malaysians! The family woke up early this morning, to watch the National Day Parade on TV, and Amir loved it. After breakfast and some house cleaning, I helped Amir make some slime for the very first time! 

9. Slime ooze
Check out the ooze! You can find out how to make your own slime after the jump :)


1. Slime ingredients
Here's the "ingredients," you'll need borax, glue, food colouring, water, some containers and spoons. That's it!

2. Mix borax
First, mix 1/2 tablespoon of borax with some water.

3. Mix glue
Then, mix your glue with some water.

4. Add food colouring
Add a drop or two of food colouring into your glue mixture. I only had red on hand.

5. Mix together
Mix the borax mixture with the glue mixture with a spoon and you've got slime!

6. Slime fun
Get rid of the excess water and have fun!

8. Slime fun
At first, the slime will feel really sticky, but after a while it will become less gooey. 

10. Slime shapes
Experiment with your slime. We made lots of different shapes with it.

11. Slime ball
We even made slime balls.

12. Smile bounce
And bounced them! We also pretended that the slime was an alien organism.

After you've finished playing with your slime, you can keep it in an airtight container. 

Note: The slime will get everywhere and will stick to clothes and upholstery, so do be careful. It's water soluble though, so washing up will be easy. If the slime dries out a little just add some water.
