There are two components to slime. There is a borax and water solution and a glue, water, and food coloring solution. Prepare them separately.
  • Mix 1 teaspoon borax in 1 cup of water. Stir until the borax is dissolved.
  • In a separate container, mix 1/2 cup (4 oz) white glue with 1/2 cup water. Add food coloring, if desired.
