Slime Dough: Sensory Dough Series

It is August's installment of the 12 Months of Sensory Dough Series!  Each month 11 fellow bloggers and I are sharing with you our playtime adventures involving a different kind of dough. To take a peek at last month's fizzy dough, you can click here. This month's theme was Slime Dough which has now taken the place of ice cream dough as our favorite. Take a look at how awesome it is...

Make Your Own

  • 1-4 oz bottle of glue
  • mixing bowl and spoon
  • water
  • 1 tsp. Borax
  • food coloring

1. Pour a 4 oz bottle of glue into a large mixing bowl. Fill up the empty glue bottle with water and pour the it into the bowl. In a separate bowl, mix together 1/2 cup water and 1 tsp. Borax. Add this mixture to the watered-down glue. Also add several drops of food coloring. You'll want to stir everything together until the glue-like mixture becomes a solid dough with a slimy consistency. 
2. Hand the dough to the kids and let them play!

Side note: This dough looks like it would be really messy, but it actually stuck to itself and came off hands and surfaces easily. Eli has been hesitant to touch some of the other doughs. He played with this one for hours!

  1. I think this replaced our favorite dough, too. :) Love all the content looks while playing. So fun!

  2. This dough is great! I made it last year with my first grade class. They had a blast!

  3. I wish we could get borax here in the UK :(
