How to Make Slime (Ninja Turtle Ooze)

image

Hey, look at this! There’s a broken canister of mutant ooze leaking down into the sewers! But don’t worry because this sticky slime is non-toxic, and it’s so easy to make, a three-year-old can do it!

Step 1: Gather These Materials

Inspired by Dr. Anne Helmenstine with About.com, my kids and I found and slightly modified a recipe for making slime.

My kids went crazy for it! It’s great stuff because it’s basically harmless and extremely easy to make. So easy, in fact, that my little three-year-old did it himself (with a little coaching, of course).

If you’d like to make it at home, here’s how we did it! Step 2: Gather Your Materials

You will need:

• ½ teaspoon borax laundry booster (found in grocery stores in the laundry detergent section).

• 5 ounces clear school glue (usually in the craft section of some grocery stores, or stores like Walmart).

• Green and yellow food coloring.

• Water.

Step 3: Make the Solutions

Make Solution “A” In one container, mix:

• 1 cup of warm water

• ½ tsp of borax

Stir to dissolve as much as possible. Make Solution “B”

In a separate container, mix together:

• ½ cup of water

• Entire 5 ounce bottle of clear glue

• Stir in 2 drops of green food coloring

• Stir in 5 drops of yellow food coloring Step 4: Mix the Solutions

Pour solution “A” into solution “B.” And right before your eyes will magically appear a gooey green flubber!

Holding this in front of a light makes it look like some sort of creepy alien experiment!

Step 5: Make a Cool Ooze Canister

I wanted to make a fun container for this ooze, and using these materials, I came up with this one.

Materials:

• 2 black 2” ABS clean-out adaptors.

• 2 black 2” ABS plugs from Home Depot.

• For the tube:

• 2” tube of acrylic (7” tall) works best.

OR

• Plastic soda bottle.

Step 6: Make It Glow
