How to make slime - the kids will LOVE this! #DIY #Kids #Summer

How to make homemade slime is a Fun Kids Activity.  This is a really fun experiment to do with your kids!   You can see from the pictures that is it “magical”.  My son LOVED this one!  I would suggest that everyone takes time to make slime with their kids at least once.  The best part is you you can make it a variety of colors too!  You could do green for St. Patrick’s Day and red and green for Christmas!

Print Recipe


  • Dish
  • Cornstarch
  • Water
  • Food Coloring


  • Measure about 50 mL cornstarch and add to your bowl. Make sure there are no lumps.
  • Measure an additional 35 mL water. Add the water and 2-3 drops of food coloring slowly to the cornstarch. Mix everything in the bowl with your fingers until all the powder is wet.
  • Keep adding water until it feels like a liquid. Try tapping on the surface of the mixture with your finger. When it is just right it won't splash - it will feel solid.
  • If your slime is too powdery, add a little more water. If it is too wet add more cornstarch.
  • Pick up a handful of your slime and squeeze it. Then stop squeezing it and see what happens. It is VERY cool!
  • Do not pour wacky mud down the drain, it will clog it.
