Making the Slime
Mix one part water and one part glue in a container. We like using jars, because it helps the slime mix well and doesn’t splash.
Add a few drops of pink food coloring and some glitter. Stir to mix everything together.
Add one part starch to the glue mixture. It should start to form slime right away. Use a fork to stir the slime and keep stirring until the slime sticks to the fork and starts to climb the handle.
Once that happens, remove the slime. It will still be sticky. Stretch and pull the slime until it smooths out and is no longer sticky. It’s ready to play with!
