The new 'Ghostbusters' movie is officially out and there is plenty of slime in this movie as there was in the original movie from the 80s.  Actually, I believe there may be more slime in this one.  

It doesn't take a special effects expert to create slime, though.  Believe it or not, you probably already have the ingredients at home to make a safe slime that the kids will enjoy playing with.  Here is the recipe according to

  1. Mix approximately 1 tablespoon of Borax with one cup of water.
  2. In the large mixing bowl, add as much Elmer’s glue as you’d like to make. (Be sure to leave enough room in the bowl for you to add in some water and the borax solution.)
  3. Add water into the mixing bowl with the Elmer’s glue. You’ll need to use about the same amount of water as you used of glue. Hint: If you used a full 8oz bottle of glue, just fill it up with water and swirl it around to get the extra glue, and that’s the perfect amount of water!
  4. Wash your hands – it’s time to get messy! (We’d hate to get your brand new slime dirty before you’ve finished making it.) Mix together the water & glue solution.
  5. If you want to have colored slime – now’s the time to add a few drops of food coloring. Not too much, remember a little bit goes a long way here.
  6. Mix it all together with your hands again so the color is even throughout your slime!
  7. So you’re probably thinking – this is way too sticky to be slime! We haven’t added the special ingredient yet. Add to the mixture your borax solution (the water with borax in it). You’ll want to add just a little bit at a time, and keep mixing it up to be sure you’ve got it to the consistency that you like!
  8. Keep kneading and working the slime together until it’s a smooth consistency throughout your slime. It should all start sticking together almost like bread dough! Once it’s like this, then you can take it out to play with on plate or in a baggie. Be careful to not get any on the carpet!
  9. When you’re done playing and learning as much as you can with your slime, we recommend you just bag it up and throw it away in the trash. And luckily, you’ve got lots of Borax left to make it again and again!

This could be a fun activity that you can do on that rainy day at home with the kids.  Get the step by step along with diagrams HERE.
