I love slime.
Probably even more than my kids.
There’s something just so relaxing about it.
I knew when I saw this little witch that she was meant to be a slime witch. So that’s what she became.
The Fun of Slime
If I’m being honest, I don’t know why I love slime so much. There’s just something peaceful about how slow it moves, how it’s cool to the touch when you first pick it up, and the mesmerizing colorings you can achieve with food coloring.
I love involving slime in our homeschool – like when we made slime animal cells and plant cells.
How to Make Your Witch Slime
There are many ways to make slime. For this one, I didn’t want a cloudy or solid color. I wanted my purple to be a bit transparent. The best way to do that is by using clear glue and borax.
6oz clear glue (about 1/2 cup)
1/4 tsp borax
1 cup warm water
purple food dye
The Witch – I got mine in the Target Dollar Spot, at the front of the store. (2020 Update. They have similar products this year, but no witch)
How to make your slime
- Mix the glue and 1/2 cup water in one container. Add the food dye and then stir.
The more food dye you add, the darker the color will be.
- In a separate container, mix the other 1/2 cup water with 1/4 tsp borax. Stir until the borax is fully mixed in.
- Pour the borax solution into the glue solution and stir. The slime should form quickly. Keep stirring until it is all slime.
- You’ll want to mix with your hands at one point. Sometimes slime can be sticky at first. The more you play with it, the less sticky it should be.
Things to do with your witch slime
I don’t often feel bored with slime but sometimes my kids do. They just don’t always know what to do.
So I might offer them challenges of suggestions.
Here are a few things you can do with your witchy slime.
- See if you can completely cover the witch
- Can you make a W with the slime?
- What happens with you put the witch on top of the slime
