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.
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!
