Make your own slime - www.whatdoesshedoallday.comJust in case you didn’t find anything that was up your alley in my Indoor Activities for Toddlers post I have another idea for you.  Make your own slime!  I’ve been wanting to do this for some time, but I kept forgetting to pick up some glue.  Yesterday we swung by Target (for the third time this week) and I grabbed two bottles of the cheapest glue they had.  And today we made slime!!

Make your own slime - www.whatdoesshedoallday.comAll you need is glue, Borax and some water.  A cute and inquisitive 2 year old helps, too.

Make your own slime - www.whatdoesshedoallday.comHave your handy helper pour the glue into a bowl.

Make your own slime - www.whatdoesshedoallday.comMix 1/2 cup water and food coloring in with your glue and stir, stir, stir.

Make your own slime - www.whatdoesshedoallday.comIn a separate bowl add one teaspoon Borax and 1 cup water (I did the Borax measuring since I didn’t want Cupcake to inhale the powder).

Make your own slime - www.whatdoesshedoallday.comStir, stir, stir again.

Make your own slime - www.whatdoesshedoallday.comPour your glue mixture into the Borax mixture.

Make your own slime - www.whatdoesshedoallday.comThe mixture will solidify on contact!  (Science is cool!!!!!)

Make your own slime - www.whatdoesshedoallday.comYou can start pulling the slime out of the bowl.

Make your own slime - www.whatdoesshedoallday.comOr let your little helper do it!  (There will be leftover water in the bowl and that’s OK.)

Make your own slime - www.whatdoesshedoallday.comSquish!!!  The slime will be quite watery at first, but as you play it will thicken up.  (Feel free to mop up some of the water on the table, but don’t touch your towel to the slime or it will stick.)

Make your own slime - www.whatdoesshedoallday.comBathtub toys are great for playing in slime!!!  Oh, no!  The crocodile is stuck in the gooey goo!!!

Make your own slime - www.whatdoesshedoallday.comAnd baskets with holes (from the dollar store) are fun, too!

Slime will keep those kiddos busy for hours!  (or at least long enough for you to edit photos and type up a blog post!)

When you’re done playing for the day store the slime in a plastic bag in the fridge.  Also, might I suggest putting a smock on your toddler since the slime does stick to clothes, though it will wash out.



Combine in a small bowl 4 oz glue + 1/2 cup water + liquid food coloring

Combine in a small bowl 1 cup water + 1 tsp Borax

Combine the two bowls and play!!


Have some slimy fun on this icy day!!!
