Slime you make yourself is wonderfully sticky. Test as you go by increasing/reducing the quantity of potato flour to make it thicker or thinner. For a fun effect, you can mix in polystyrene balls. Children under 3 should only use slime under adult supervision.
- 3 dl water
- 2-4 tbsp potato flour
- a few drops of neutral cooking oil
- a few drops of food colouring
- 1 tbsp glycerol
- 1 tbsp water
- polystyrene balls
1. Pour water, potato flour, oil and food colouring into a pot and heat while stirring. Stir until the mixture has thickened. Remove from the heat and let cool.
2. Combine 1 tbsp. glycerol with 1 tbsp. warm water + polystyrene balls; stir into the mixture a little at a time, and then stir rapidly. Pour into a bowl.
Slime can be stored for a few days in a jar with a tight-fitting lid in the refrigerator.
