Who remembers playing with slime as a child? I do! I do! It’s gooey, it’s colorful, and it’s kind of addicting! The best part about my slime tutorial is that it’s scented.
Think: watermelon, strawberry, apple, and blueberry.
Keep in mind that, just like the slime you can buy in stores, you don’t want to give this to children who are still putting toys and objects in their mouths. While tasting and putting objects in your mouth is part of the learning process and is completely acceptable, this activity is for children who are past that developmental stage.
In order to make this incredible scented slime, you will need: water, food coloring, borax (a powder form laundry booster found in the laundry isle of your grocery store) and Scentos craft glue (we found ours at Office Max).
- 1 1/2 cups Water
- 1 tsp. Borax
- 4 oz. bottles of Scentos White Glue
- Food coloring
- 2 bowls
- Set out 2 separate bowls.
- In 1 bowl, combine 1 cup of water with 1 tsp. of Borax and set aside.
- In a second bowl, combine the entire 4 oz. bottle of scented glue with with 1/2 cup of water (stir until completed mixed).
- Add in your food coloring of choice.
- Pour the bowl of Borax and water mixture into the bowl of glue and food coloring.
- Mix until the consistency becomes more slime like.
- Drain any extra water left in the bowl.
- Your slime is ready to play with. Any extra water will dry and your slime with be perfect! Store in an airtight container or plastic baggie.
