Rainbow Glow Slime!!!

Yesterday, we made Flubber to play with. Today, we decided to turn it into Glow Slime and use it with our blacklight. We took our Flubber, split it up into 4 portions and used neon paint to color each portion. You could also use glow-in-the-dark paint to make your slime glow in the dark if you do not have a black light. My kids had so much fun with this, especially my 12 year old!

If you are starting from scratch, you will need:
1 1/3 cups of very warm water
3 teaspoons of Borax
2 cups of white school glue, like Elmer's (4- 4oz bottles)
1 1/2 cups of very warm water
Neon or Glow-in-the-dark acrylic paint

Mix 1 1/3 cup of very warm water and the Borax in a bowl until the Borax completely dissolves. In another bowl, a large one, combine glue and 1 1/2 cups of very warm water and mix well. Add the bowl with the Borax into the bowl with the glue. Mix until everything is combined and let it sit for few minutes. Separate the slime into portions and color each portion with the paint. You can store the slime in a Ziploc bag or container to use it again.
We started out with 4 colors, but my kids could not wait to turn it into Rainbow slime!
Pretty cool!

My oldest got a bit carried away and felt the need to pretend that he was Slimer.
