Slime occasionally called “Gak” or “Oobleck” is a glob of goo that feels cool and creepy to touch. To explain, it’s gross enough for youngsters to totally like it. You can buy it at the store, of course, but you can save some money and make slime at home. While borax is generally used to make slime, an alternative it to make it using cornstarch for a fantastically nasty- and completely non-toxic- slime that works well for your child39;s party, a Halloween party, a study room activity or just to entertain the kids on a wet day.

Cornstarch Slime :

1 and 1/2 cups (350ml) of water

3 to 4 drops of food colourising

2 cups cornstarch

1 tsp cream of tarter

Add 1-1/2 cups (350ml) of water to a little saucepan. Heat until the water is warm though not hot or boiling. You don39;t want to use boiling water because then you must wait for it to chill before it's possible to use your hands to mix the slime.

Pour 1 cup (250 ml) of the halfhearted water into a bowl. Add 3 to 4 drops of green food color till the water is about a shade darker than you need the slime to be. When you make the slime, the color will be watered down a little. Mix the water well with a spoon.

Measure 2 cups (140g/500ml) of cornstarch. Cornstarch is known as cornflour in Great Britain and some place else. Place it into a new large-sized bowl.

Empty the colored water into the bowl with the cornstarch. Tip the coloured water in slowly. Use your fingers to mix the ingredients together. Comprehensively blend the blend into the consistency of a thick paste.

Control the consistency of the slime. You're able to add more cornstarch if the slime is too thin. Add more lukewarm water from the amount remaining in the pan if the mix is too thick. This is a case of personal preference.

Carry on doing this as much as wanted to obtain a mix that39;s of the right slimy consistency for your wishes. You will be able to put your fingers into the mix simply. When you run your finger along the slime’s surface, it should feel dry.

Add items to the slime to make it extra fun (optional). You can use rubber worms, plastic insects or eyeballs, for example. This is a smart idea for a Halloween party, a science party or for a party or camp completely based on nature or environmental themes.

Place your slime into a plastic bag. Seal the bag well to reserve it.
