Slime in the Kitchen with Dina!

Wake Up on the Bright Side 

Little did I know that the Advent calendar was first used by German Lutherans in the 19th and 20th centuries.  I don't remember having an Advent calendar, and I come from a German Lutheran family.  

We spent a lot of time in the kitchen as children making cookies, vinegar toffee and ice candles.  What do children make today? Homemade slime rather than cookies.  There are recipes for chia seed edible slime, the jello slime and the marshmallow edible slime.  Let's start with the classic recipe which has borax in it.

How to Make Slime with Elmer's Glue
  • 2 Bottles of Elmer's glue (5-6 oz each bottle)– Clear, Glitter Glue, or White Glue.
  • ½ – 1 tsp of Borax (the tiny sized spoons)
  • 1 cup hot water, ½ cup water.
  • Big, wide bowl.
  • Liquid watercolor or food coloring (optional)
  • Glitter (optional)
  • Confetti (optional)

Need the perfect slime recipe. This slime recipe with borax is so inviting and calming. It is an inviting play recipe that will keep children busy for hours!

Here are the non-Borax slime recipes:


Cornstarch Slime
  • 1 and ½ cups (350ml) of water
  • 13 drops of food coloring
  • 2 cups cornstarch

Edible Slime

  • 1 Tablespoon (14 grams) of cornflour

  • ½ cup baby powder

Powdered Fiber Slime
