The Slime Craze: Try This Recipe for DIY Mom- & Kid-Friendly Slime!

If you have school-aged children at home there's a chance they've asked (or begged) you to make slime. This recipe is non-toxic and will wash off both children and clothing with ease.

You'll need:

  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup washable craft glue
  • 1/4 cup liquid starch  
  • food coloring (optional)

Here's how to make it:

  1. Pour glue and water into a bowl and stir.
  2. Add 3-6 drops of food coloring, if you'd like, until you get the color you want.
  3. Mix in the liquid starch (get my recipe here or purchase at link below).

Now play! The more you stretch and smash it, the stretchier and easier to hold it will become. Store in an airtight container so it stays squishy for future play!

The clear glue works better if you are adding glitter makes it easier to see the glitter and so much fun
