Halloween Goo!

Just For Fun
Your Children will enjoy the way this rubbery Goo slowly slips through their fingers!

What You'll Need:

-1 1/2 cups Water
-5 drops green Food Coloring
-2 cups glue (4 - 4 oz. bottles) (Elmer's glue works best)
-2 teaspoons Borax (Found in the laundry detergent isle)
-1 cup hot Water

The how to:
-Mix 1 1/2 cups water, food coloring and glue in a large bowl until well blended. (this may take a few minutes)

-In a separate bowl mix 1 cup HOT water and 2 tsp. Borax. Mix until dissolved.

-Add Borax mixture to glue mixture and stir. This mixture will start to coagulate quickly and will be hard to stir. Mix as best you can. (at this point I use my hands to mix it) When well mixed, pour out any excess water and let Goo stand for about 10 minutes. Now it's ready!!!

-Goo can be stored in air tight containers and will keep approximately 2-4 weeks.
