Posted: Updated:

School has been out for several weeks and the kids might be getting a little bored. Why not make some homemade slime? It's a fun activity and kind of a science experiment as well. The ingredients start out as liquids, but form chemical bonds when they're mixed together to make a polymer.

All it takes is:

* water

* transparent or white glue (Elmer's)

* borax

* food coloring, if you want colored slime

Make the Slime:

Mix 1 teaspoon of borax in 1 cup of water. Stir to dissolve the borax. In a separate container, mix 1/2 cup of glue (1 bottle) in 1/2 cup of water. You can add food coloring if you like. When you mix the two solutions together, cross links will form between the molecules, forming the gelatinous polymer we call slime. The slime is non-toxic and can be cleaned from surfaces using soap and water. You can store the slime in a plastic baggie to keep it from drying out.
