Green Slime


How to Make Yucky Halloween Slime

When October rolls around you can find all kinds of scary and gross stuff in stores. From plastic spiders and hanging bats to fake blood and stick-on scars, it's many a kid's dream come true. And there's even fun stuff for those who scare easily, such as slime.

Slime looks and feels rather disgusting, but it's loads of fun. Kids love to squish it and use it in pretend play. But did you know that's it is easy and fun to make slime at home? It's also much more educational than buying it from the store. Here's how to do it.

What You Need:

  • Warm water
  • White craft glue
  • Borax
  • Two mixing bowls
  • Measuring cups and spoons
  • Stirring spoon
  • Green food coloring


1. Pour ¾ cup of water into one of the mixing bowls.

2. Add 1 cup of white glue to the water. Mix thoroughly.

3. Add a few drops of food coloring, and stir to see how dark it makes the mixture. Repeat until the desired coloring is achieved.

4. Pour 1/3 cup of water into the second bowl. Add 4 teaspoons of Borax and mix thoroughly.

5. Pour the Borax mixture into the glue mixture. Do not mix, just let stand for 1 minute.

  • Corn Starch
  • Green food coloring
  • Mixing bowl
  • Measuring cups


1. Pour 1 cup of water into the bowl.

2. Add 1 cup of corn starch.

3. Mix together with your hands until gooey and dough-like.

4. If the mixture is not thick enough, add more corn starch. If too thick, add more water. Adjust until desired consistency is reached.

5. Add a few drops of food coloring and mix with hands until evenly colored.

Tips For Making Slime

Green is the trademark slime color, but you can make it in any color you like. Add one or more colors of food coloring to create any shade you like.

Want glitter slime? Just mix in some loose glitter when you add the food coloring.

Store slime in a plastic container with a lid or a zip-top sandwich bag to keep it from drying out.

Cover the work area with newspaper when making slime to prevent messes. It's also a good idea to protect surfaces, furniture and carpet when your child is playing with slime, as it could stain or stick to them.

Slime made from the Borax recipe should be kept away from children under three years of age, as Borax is toxic in high doses.
