For this month’s time in the kitchen with our multiples, we are not going to make something to eat.

I know, I know, you are all confused but believe it or not, not all things made in the kitchen need to be eaten.

I stumbled upon this recipe on a cooking blog that I just adore and since it is almost Halloween, I knew that I just had to share it.

So gather your multiples, get in the kitchen and let’s make some slime! Oh and a word of warning, you can not eat slime so please make sure that your children understand this.

The ingredients you are going to need are as follows:

  • 1 teaspoon borax powder
  • 1 1/2 C water, divided
  • 4 oz (1/2 C) Elmer’s glue, clear or white
  • food coloring

First you want to add 1 teaspoon of borax powder to 1 cup of water and let it dissolve and then set it aside.

Then add 4oz of glue to a large mixing bowl.

Next add 1/2 cup water to the glue and mix it up.

Now, its time for color. We choose green because, really slime should be green but the only thing that will limit you on your color choice the what food coloring you have at home.

The last step in the process of creating slime it to add the dissolved Borax to your glue mixture. Almost immediately you will see the solids start to form.

Once all the ingredients are in the bowl it is time to mix them. The best, most fun and gross way to do this is to roll up those sleeves and let the kids get their hands in there.

Just a note here, the slime starts out very, very watery but the more mixing and kneading you do the dryer it becomes.

This is the part that the kids like the best. Just let them at that bowl and have them go to town.

Also, in case you are wondering slime comes out of clothes no problem. Trust me, I had to strip down all my kid and wash their clothes when they were done. They got really into the project.

So there you have it. Now you too came make some slime. I highly recommend this project, I can’t remember a time when my kids had more fun in the kitchen.

Have a Happy and Slimy Halloween!
