St Patricks Day Activities
For this really cool slime recipe you only need a few simple materials!
- 1/2 cup clear school glue
- 1/2 cup water
- gold glitter
- 1/2 teaspoon Borax (found in the laundry aisle)
- gold or yellow food coloring (optional)
- black pots (optional)
- gold coins (optional)
How to make gold slime
In a bowl combine 1/2 cup clear school glue and 1/2 cup water. If you want a bigger batch just use more; you need equal parts of water and glue. Mix in as much gold glitter as you like – the more the better!
In a sepearte bowl mix 1/2 teaspoon of borax into 1/2 cup warm water until combined. The hotter the water, the faster the Borax will dissolve; this makes the activator. Slowly add the activator to the glue-glitter mixture. We added 1 Tablespoon at a time until we reached desired consistency. Unlike white glue slime, if you add too much activator to clear slime, it won’t be stretchy.
