Super Hero Slime

Kids love pretending to be super heroes. 
Today for Fun Friday we're making SLIME.
As a super hero, you never know when you'll come up against a
slimy villain.
Practice manipulating this slime and even use it to your advantage as a super hero.

You'll need:
1/2 cup warm water
1 tsp. Borax (powder laundry soap)
2 -4oz bottle of Elmer's glue
food coloring

Pour your glue into an old bowl or bucket.
In another container, mix the water, Borax and add in the food coloring.
The more color you add, the darker your slime.

Pour the color mixture into the glue and stir. 

You'll have a little water left over but
the slime will start to form into a mass of gooey-ness!
Drain off excess water and squish by hand to make sure the glue is well incorporated.
It will feel like silly putty.


We divided our slime up into little plastic cups,
so each super hero could have their own supply.

We added this fun label to each container. 

Print off your own
on Avery 8160 sheets of 30 labels.

Tons of squishy fun!

have a slimy Fun Friday!


  1. How fun for the wee ones! Thank you for sharing and thank you for the visit and sweet words at The Dedicated House. It means the world! Feel free to share your post at my Make it Pretty Monday party which goes live tonight at 8:00PM. Here is the link to last week's party just in case you want to check it out. Hope to see you at the bash! Happy week to you! Toodles, Kathryn @TheDedicatedHouse

    1. The kids loooved the slime! Thanks for our nice comment and we'll be checking out the link party! Thanks.

  2. My kids would love this! Thanks for sharing at Merry Monday. :)

  3. You bet! The kids have had fun with it and its so easy to make!

  4. We're thinking of using this for VBS. How much slime does you recipe make? We were needing enough for 30-40 kids. Would we have to make several batches?

    1. Yes, you would have to make several batches. I haven't made it in awhile, but I think you'd get 1-2 cups out of the batch. We just gave each kid maybe 2 Tbsp. worth of slime. The good news is that glue is on sale right now with all the back to school items!
