How-To: Make Fake Slime For Halloween

Last year I dressed as Bjork in her infamous swan dress for Halloween, so I didn't require gory, gooey props. And, as usual, my Halloween costume will likely come together last minute. But, if any of you are in the need for some slime for your get-up this year, I have a simple fake slime (or snot) recipe for you. If you've got kids, it's a fun way to get them excited about the holiday, if they aren't bursting at the seams already. All you'll need is some borax, Elmer's glue, and food coloring. To learn how to make your own gooey green slime,

Here's how, from About.com:

  1. Mix together 1/8 cup of borax with 2 cups of water. Let it cool to room temp.
  2. Mix 2 tablespoons of Elmer's glue with 3 tablespoons of water. For opaque slime, use white glue. For transparent slime, use blue or clear-gel glue.
  3. Drop a couple drops of green food coloring into the glue mixture and stir.
  4. Add a tablespoon of the borax solution to the glue mixture, and stir. Fini!
