How To Make Slime

Make slime at home by combining glue, water, liquid starch, food coloring, and decorations and stirring, kneading, and adding water when needed.

Slime is a popular DIY craft that is easy to make at home with a few simple ingredients. Here is a basic recipe for making slime:


-1/4 cup of white school glue

-1/4 cup of water

-1/4 cup of liquid starch (can be found at most grocery or craft stores)

-Food coloring (optional)

-Glitter or other decorations (optional)


In a mixing bowl, combine the white school glue and water. Mix well.

If you want to add color to your slime, add a few drops of food coloring to the glue and water mixture and stir until the color is evenly distributed.

Slowly pour in the liquid starch while stirring the glue mixture.

Keep stirring until the slime starts to form and it becomes difficult to stir with a spoon.

Once the slime is formed, take it out of the bowl and start kneading it with your hands.

The slime will be sticky at first, but as you knead it, it will become less sticky and more stretchy.

If you want to add glitter or other decorations to your slime, add them now while kneading.

Once the slime is no longer sticky and has a smooth consistency, it is ready to play with!

It's important to note that slime is not a food, please don't ingest it and keep it away from children under 3 years old and pets. You can also make slime with other ingredients such as cornstarch, borax powder, or liquid laundry detergent, but the recipe and the process will be different. It's also important to always supervise kids when they are making slime and make sure they know how to handle the ingredients safely.

When you're done playing with your slime, you can store it in an airtight container or plastic bag. If your slime gets too dry, you can add a few drops of water to it and knead it again to make it stretchy once more.

Slime making is a fun and easy activity that can be enjoyed by people of all ages. It's a great way to spend a rainy afternoon or to entertain kids at a party. With a little creativity, you can make all sorts of different types of slime using different colors, decorations, and even scents. Have fun and be creative!
