Homemade Slime without Borax

Author: Amanda Carlisle


  • 1/2 Cup of Washable Clear Glue or White Glue 
  • 1/2 Cup of Liquid Starch
  • 1/2 Cup of Water
  • Measuring Cup
  • 2 bowls and a spoon
  • food coloring confetti, glitter {optional}


  •  In one bowl mix 1/2 cup water and 1/2 cup of glue. Stir the glue and water together well!
  •  Now’s the time to add color, glitter, or confetti! Remember when you add color to white glue, the color will be lighter. Use clear glue for jewel toned colors!
  • Pour in 1/2 cup of liquid starch. You will see the slime immediately start to form. The slime starts to come together instantly! Switch to mixing with hands for a few minutes until you feel the majority of the liquid incorporated into the slime.
  • Put in a clean, dry container or on a plate. Slime can be played with right away but it’s consistency changes a bit over the next 30 mins to a smoother looking substance as opposed to the stringier slime you may originally see.
  • Store in an airtight container when you are finished playing with it.
