Instructions:

  1. Start by mixing together 1 bottle of red glitter glue and ¾ cup of very warm water in one mixing bowl. Mix well until combined

2. In a separate bowl, mix together 1 tsp of Borax and ⅔ of a cup of very warm water until the Borax is completely dissolved.

3. Combine the Borax mixture with the glue mixture and continue to mix until you reach a slime consistency.
