Make your own slime

Found 28th Jul 2017
Just thought I'd share a slime recipe that I've just made with my daughter incase any parent out there is trying to find something to do on a rainy day!

1- pour 150 ml of pva glue into bowl
2- add dash of food colouring if you want it to be a certain colour
3- mix together
4- add 1 teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda and mix
5 - add 1 teaspoon of any eye drops that contain boric acid.. I found the Sparkling eye drops in home bargains for 79p contains this.
6 - mix together and then add a few drops of eye drops until you have the perfect slime.

I've been trying over the last few days with various methods but this is the only one I've managed to make slime with!

You may want to mention that the egg needs to be boiled prior to being placed in the vinegar. Or have I spoilt your mischievous intentions?

P.S. Add some food colouring to the vinegar if the children want a bit of variety.

P.P.S. Pleasantly surprised that a thread titled 'Make your own slime' has not generated a different range of responses.

We make Cricket bats from socks in our house.
What a coincidence as my niece was making some a few hours ago using ketchup and sugar lol
Thanks for this.
Another you keep kids busy and kind of slime like mix corn flour with water until it's a smooth paste and quite hard to stir. Add food colouring. When the paste is in the bowl or tray its solid when kids pick it up its liquid.

you don't have to boil it , it still works and then you get to splat at the end makes for better fun playing catch
What are they supposed to do with the slime? I assume if you make it for them, you have to give them a free pass if they rub it in each others hair, change the colour of the wallpaper with it and put it under you pillow.
