Hi everyone! It's been a while since I last posted. Life has been super busy! So lets get this summer in gear and follow me as we make a fun and creative craft every few days!
- Distilled Water
- Food Coloring (optional but more fun with it!)
- Elmer's Glue (Or generic version)
- Measuring Cup
- 2 Mixing Spoon
- Ziploc Baggies
|Some of our supplies.|
|First, measure out 1 cup of water and add it to your mixing bowl.|
|Next add your food coloring, if you plan to color your goo - mix well.|
|Time to pour in your borax. Stir well, it may take a minute or two of mixing to get it all dissolved. Parents please supervise your children when handling borax, it should not be consumed.|
|Now the second part. In a separate bowl add 1/2 cup of water.|
|Measuring 1/2 a cup of glue (about 1 bottle)|
|Adding our glue to the bowl.|
|Ready to pour!|
|Right after pouring. The reaction is nearly instant!|
|This is just after a few seconds!|
Tips & Notes:
This is an extremely fun and easy recipe the whole family can enjoy. If small children are participating (mine did!) I recommend supervision or help measuring and pouring the borax. This whole process can take less than 10 minutes to create. It's best to store goo in a ziplock bag for a very long shelf life. Storing in the frig will help too. We even used Easter eggs for fun storage!
Want transparent goo? Try using the clear Elmer's glue! And as a reminder, this is not to be consumed!
Lastly I'd like to thank my lovely assistants. My daughter Chloie (11yrs), Piper (3yrs) not pictured, and my sister Hailey (7yrs) for making this fun blog with me!
Take Care and Enjoy!
