Here's How To Make Slime From Corn Starch!

Making slime is a popular classroom project, and here's a simple recipe to make the gooey stuff, using corn starch!

  • 1/2 cup Argo Corn Starch (any brand can be substituted)
  • 1/4 cup water
  • Optional: food coloring 

  • Disposable Bowls (or bowls that won't stain with coloring)
  • Placemats or plastic tablecovers (to protect work surfaces or tables)
  • Optional: Disposable latex gloves, aprons (to protect student's clothes), and cleaning supplies.

  • Stir corn starch and water together in a small bowl. Add a drop of food coloring if desired.
  • When it's wet and smooth, pick it up and play!  The slime can be rolled into a ball and should ooze through fingers when held. More corn starch can be added to change the consistency based on preference.
  • The slime can be refrigerated in a sealed container to be used for later play!
  • IMPORTANT! This mixture can clog drains. Please dispose of carefully. Let the mixture settle, then pour off excess water. Dispose of slime in a plastic bag and place in trash.
