Materials I Used


How to Make Jiggly Slime - Things Needed


Pour Glue in Large Bowl


Pour 2 bottles of Elmer’s Glue in large bowl.  It is important to make sure to squeeze out as much glue as possible.

Next, set the empty glue bottles to the side.

Add Warm Water

Use one of the empty glue bottles and fill the bottle with warm water.
Next, pour the warm water into the large bowl.
The water does not need to be hot.  The same temperature as a warm bath is sufficient.

The glue to water ration is 2 parts glue to every 1 part water.

Mix Warm Water with Glue

It is important to mix the warm water very well with the glue.
I recommend mixing with a baking spatula for 5 minutes.

The mixing caused Mattie to get very bored.
Her attitude changed when I told her it was time for the next step.



Prepare Borax Mixture

To prepare the Borax mixture, add 2 cups of warm water to a bowl.
Next, add 1 tablespoon of borax to the warm water and mix well.
The borax needs to be completely dissolved in the bowl.


Add Borax

It’s time to add the borax to the glue/water.
irst, add half of the bowl of dissolved borax and mix it into the slime.
The glue should immediately begin to clump.
Mix this for a few minutes and the slime should be a bit wet and slippery.

Eventually, The slime will get too thick to mix with the spatula.
Use your hands to finish the mixing.

Once the slime absorbs as much of the warm water as it will absorb, lift it from the bowl and let the excess water drain.
The draining should only take 10 or 15 seconds.
Ultimately, the slime will be very jiggly and slimy.
