Anyway, one of the characters in the book/movie is a slime creature and he was entranced but kinda struggling to understand ("it's sort of like see-through gum!" I explained, unhelpfully.) So I set out to make slime.
First thing you should know if you're contemplating trying this with a three-year-old is: have a glass of wine first. It's going to make a huge mess and you're not really going to know how to dispose of it and they're going to be over it after about three minutes. But if you've had enough wine it'll all seem pretty hilarious.
How to make Slime:
|Two mixing bowls|
|Measuring cups and spoons|
2. In the second bowl, mix together 1 teaspoons borax and 2 cups water.
3. Pour the contents of the first bowl into the second, and stir. If you knead it it'll become more like Silly Putty.
4. If you want to save it, keep it in a zip-top bag.
