Silly Play Goop
2 cups cornflour
In a mixing bowl, add two cups cornflour and 1 cup water. Mix until it becomesliquid. Pour liquid in a saucepan on low heat and add the three cups flour. Mix while gradually adding water.
Turn off stove and put the dough on the table for kids to play with. It will stick to your hands but that's okay. Pour a little flour on the table or on children's hands. Keep playing with it until it doesn't stick. You can also store in ziploc bags.
*Thanks to Fatima from Kuwait for this Silly Play Goop recipe. Fatima says this Goop is great to stretch and model with.
1 cup room temperature water
Mix together room temperature water, glue, and food coloring in a medium bowl. Set aside. In another bowl, mix together warm water and Borax until completely dissolved.
Next, slowly pour the glue mix into the second bowl with the Borax solution, but do not mix them together.
Roll the glue mix around in the Borax solution (around 4 or 5 times). Then lift the glue mix out of the Borax solution. Knead for 2-3 minutes.
Store the slime (the glue mix) in an airtight container or plastic ziplock bag.
NOTE: Be careful when using Borax around young children. Do not ingest and avoid contact with eyes.
