What you need to make Slime
- liquid starch

To make simply mix equal parts of liquid starch and glue together.
We placed 1/4 cup liquid starch into a sandwich bag and added about 3 drops of green food coloring.
Next add in 1/4 cup glue into the bag.
Mix well. It will start to form a solid blob. There might be a bit of liquid that will not mix in, just remove the blob of slime and discard the bag with the extra liquid.
