Materials for 1 bag of slime:

Getting started:

We typically make this in March and call it ooblek, but you can make it anytime! It’s easiest to have students make the slime in groups.  We had 6 kids in each group, so we had 4 bags of slime.

  • I gave each group two ziploc bags.
  • I had them pour in one bottle of white glue and equal parts water.
  • They chose the paint color they wanted and added a few drops.
  • Each student took turns mixing the bag up.  Tip: Make sure to get all of the air out of the bag before closing and mixing it up.
  • We slowly added in about 4 oz of liquid starch.
  • Students kept mixing the bag from the outside until the desired consistency was reached.

Slime Tip: Double up the bags in case any slime spills out.
