  1. Cover a large table or work surface with old newspapers. Give each child making slime her own plastic, reusable sandwich bag.

  2. Measure 240 ml (1 cup) of cornstarch and pour it into a sandwich bag. Measure 60 ml (1/4 cup) of water and slowly add it to the cornstarch.

  3. Add a few drops of food colouring. You can also have kids add a few pinches of glitter to give the slime sparkle. Allow children to experiment with mixing different colours to make the slime personalised.

  4. Press the excess air from the sandwich bag and seal it closed. Knead the closed sandwich bag with your hands until all the contents of the bag are blended. Once all the ingredients are blended, the slime is ready to be played with.
