Instructions: Using a medium-size non stick pan, combine the ingredients and cook for about 3.5 minutes over medium heat, stirring constantly. The mixture should begin to form a ball. Remove it from the heat and let it cool, then knead it until it feels smooth. Each batch should yield about 2 cups, and will last a week or two when stored in a ziplock bag. Scale up the recipe as needed or consider making multiple batches in different colors.
Making Green Goop Play Slime (Recommended for kids ages 4 and up)
This creates a type of clay slime that feels wet and slimy to the touch, yet doesn’t stick to skin. It may, however, stick to some types of clothing, so smocks are recommended.
Mix together 3/4 cup of warm water, 1 cup of white glue, and a few drops of green food coloring. In another bowl, combine 4 teaspoons of borax and 1 1/3 cups of warn water. Poor the contents of the first bowl into the second and let it sit for one minute without stirring. Now your congealed slime should be good to goo! Afterward, pack it in zip lock bags to keep the contents fresh. It should stay good for a week or two.
Ghetto School Clay
For a quick clay substitute to use for art projects, mix playground sand with ordinary Elmer's School Glue until it gets a malleable, clay-like texture to it. (You’ll need approximately ¼ cup of white glue for every cup of sand.) Kids can mold it into assorted shapes. Once it dries, it will harden just like clay.
