A Cavity-free treat for Haloween!

Although sugar seems to dominate Halloween each year, here's something else to enjoy this year.

Slimey Stuff to Play With

1 cup of all purpose glue
3/4 cup of water
1 tbsp of tempera paint (what ever color you like -- I think mine will be green)
1/2 tsp of Borax (you can find this in the laundry aisle at the grocery)

1. With a wire whisk mix together the glue, 1/2 cup of the water, and paint ina glass bowl. Make sure to mix it thoroughly.
2. Mix the reminaing water with the borax in a separate bowl.
3. Slowly pour the Borax mix into the Glue mix.
4. Let it rest for a few minutes, then knead.
5. Drain off any remaining liquid.
6. Store in plastic bags.

Since it's messy and gross -- kids love it! This maybe one of those toys that's best enjoyed outside. :)
