- 2 plastic cups

Mix the borax
In one of your plastic cups, add 1 cup of water and 1 teaspoon of borax. Stir them together until the borax is fully dissolved. Borax is used in laundry detergent to help aid in cleaning.
The glue mixture
Add 1/2 cup water to your second cup and pour in 4 oz (1/2 cup) of glue. Stir them together. This is the perfect time to add a few drops of food coloring to make your slime any color you’d like.
Slowly pour the glue mixture into the borax mixture cup, stirring slowly as you go. The slime will start to form instantly. Once they are fully together, continue stirring to help combine them as much as possible.
