Pour in ¼ of liquid starch to start. Stir to make the slime. We added bits more of starch to make the liquid completely gone. Knead the slime for a few minutes. You can store in a container with a lid for up to a month. We used cookie cutters and gumdrops to make holiday shapes.

Some science behind the slime: the borate ions in the slime activators mix with the PVA glue and forms this cool stretchy substance. This is called cross linking. The glue is a polymer and is made up of long, repeating and identical strands of molecules. These molecules will flow past one another keeping the glue in a liquid state. When you add the borate ions to the mixture, it starts to connect these long strands together. They begin to tangle and mix until the substance is less like the liquid you started with and thicker and more rubber like making the slime feel! It’s not quite a fluid but also not quite a solid.
