4th of July Slime

We made 4th of July themed slime this week. Braysen always loves to help make it (and play with it). This was the first time the girls got to play with the slime.

This time we used a different recipe. I stumbled across a recipe that used starch instead of Borax. Using starch instead of Borax eliminated one step in the process, so we decided to test out the starch recipe.

4th of July Slime
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup clear glue
1/2 cup liquid starch
food coloring/glitter/sequins (optional) 

Mix the water and the glue.
Add any food coloring, sequins, or glitter.
 Pour the starch into a separate bowl. 
Slowly mix the water/glue mixture into the starch.

That's it! When you first pick it up, it will be a bit sticky, but once you work it with your hands for a bit, the stickiness mostly goes away. I normally use clear glue, but for the white slime, I opted to use white glue for coloring purposes.

Berlyn decided that slime just isn't her thing. But she enjoyed watching Braysen and Brynlee play with it!
