When the slime craze started over a year ago in our home, I initially thought it would be a phase that would pass in a couple of weeks so I let my children make slime out of any liquid substance imaginable! Seems time passed and this ‘trend’ stuck around and is still an ongoing part of our daily lives. So, tons of Tupperware later hosting various textures, scents and ingredients I thought it was time to get some basics down pact so that the kids wouldn’t be throwing and wasting ingredients day after day. Here are our go-to recipes for successful slime basics!
**Note** Glitter, food color, soap, paint and stayflo etc can all be added to these to make for more ‘fun’ and tons of combinations- they are endless!

Tidbit about Boric Acid:
Yes, Boric acid IS made from borax and it seems that most activators have some type of borax ingredients in them – including the contact lens solutions that people claim are ‘safe’ for children to use instead of Borax. Overall, please make sure to keep a close eye on your children when making and playing with any type of slime or related products and thoroughly wash hands to avoid consumption and harm.
