DIY Slime!

Hey DIYers, today's post is DIY Slime! This DIY is so easy, and the slime is really fun to play with! Let's get started!

What you'll need:
- 4 fluid oz of Glue (I recommend using Elmer's school glue. See picture below to see what that looks like!). If you use a clear glue, you will get clear slime, and if you use a gel glue, you'll get this transparent-looking slime.

- Borax 1tsp
- 1 & 1/3 cups of Water 1cup (mixed with glue) 1/3 cup (mixed with Borax)
- 2 small Bowls, 1 large one
- A Spatula
- Optional: glitter, food coloring, or other embellishments!

1. In one of the small bowls, mix 1tsp of Borax with 1/3 of the water.
2. In the other small bowl, mix 1 cup of water with your entire container of glue.
3. Pour both substances into the bigger bowl, and start stirring with the spatula immediately. You will start to notice that these two substances react to each other very quickly, and that in the bigger bowl will be this slime-like substance.
4. Once all the water is absorbed, you can add in your glitter, food coloring, or embellishments if you want your slime to be a little more personalized!

You're done! Now you can start playing with your awesome slime! Once you're done playing with it, put it in a ziplock bag, and zip tightly so that no air is inside so that it does not dry out.

Have fun! Stay tuned for the next DIY!
