Slime/Goo Experiment

Hey Blue Preschool friends!  This is a fun experiment that we didn't get to at Preschool yesterday so I thought I'd share it in case you wanted to do this with your preschool boys as a fun activity.  I did this with T yesterday and he thought it was really fun, although it took him a while to get up the courage to touch it.  (It is fun to play with in a ziplock bag if they don't want to touch the goo.)

white glue
food coloring

Mix white glue with an equal amount of water. 
Put in some food coloring in the glue mixture.
In a seperate bowl dissolve 2 tablespoons of borax in water.
Slowly add a little bit of the dissolved borax into the glue mixture until slime appears. 
Work the slime with your hands and play!
Store in a ziplock bag.
**I have A LOT of borax if any of you want some to use for this experiment.  Just let me know and I'll give you a bag of the stuff.


  1. Okay I just have to say T's face in the first picture is priceless. We may take you up on the borax soap and give this a try. Thanks for sharing it.

  2. I really love his face in that first picture. Awesome. What a cute and funny guy.
