Issue #34 – D.I.Y. Galaxy Slime

INSTRUCTIONS:

In one bowl, mix 1/2 cup of glue with 1/2 cup of water. Stir together; it will mix nicely.  Add food coloring to the glue and water mixture. We used 6 drops of blue and 3 drops of red to get a nice dark purple color. In the other bowl, mix 1 teaspoon of borax with 1 cup of lukewarm water. Stir until the borax is dissolved. This takes a while, so you will have to be patient. If you skip this step, your slime will not come out very well. Adding the purple glue mixture to the borax solution. The mixture turns into goop when they come into contact with

each other.You’ll see the slime start to form. Stir as much as you can. Use your hands to get in there and work it around. Take your glob of slime out of the bowl and put it on your wax paper. It’s okay if there is some water left behind.The slime is now on the waxed paper in one piece. It’s time to add some glitter galaxies! Flatten out your slime and spread glitter over the top. You can use any color or combination of colors, but lighter ones will work best because they will stand out against the dark purple. Fold your slime in half to seal in the glitter. Then press it out and fold it over again. The slime is folded in half enclosing the glitter inside.  Play with your handheld universe and watch it stretch and expand!
