Make Your Own Slime!

Make some ishy-squishy ooze with this gross-tacular activity from The Budding Scientist.

What You Will Need:

  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • Food coloring
  • Measuring cup
  • Measuring spoon
  • 1/2-pound-size plastic margarine tub with lid, clean and dry
  • 5 teaspoons water
  • Wooden or sturdy plastic spoon

  1. Place cornstarch, water, and food coloring into the margarine tub.
  2. Mix with a spoon until you have a thick paste. The mixture will be stiff.
