An easy DIY slime recipe for kids
Make Your Own Coloured Slime
Gross out your friends with this slime recipe

Have you ever wanted to make your own slippery, oozy, gooey slime? Well today is your lucky day my friends.

This recipe is simple and safe and uses only three ingredients. Children can make this by themselves but may need help getting the hot bowls out of the microwave. This is not a terribly messy project, you just need to be careful not to spill the food colouring.

Make Your Own Coloured Slime
The ingredients

You will need:

Psyllium Husk Powder - available from supermarkets
Cold water
Food colouring
a microwave

How to make it:

In a microwave safe bowl add 1 tablespoon of Psyllium Husk powder and 1 cup of cold water. Stir well to remove any lumps. The mixture will look like this.

Next add a few drops of food colouring until you achieve your desired colour. Stir this mixture until you get an even colour. It should look something like this.

Place the microwave safe bowl in to the microwave and cook on high for 1 minute. Remove from microwave, being careful as the bowl and mixture will be hot. An adult may have to help with this step.

Stir the mixture and then microwave for another 30 seconds.
Stir again, then allow to cool before touching (this will take around 10-15 minutes).

Your slime is now ready to use.

The finished product

Repeat until you have all of the desired colours. We made four small balls (around a handful each) of slime in about 15 minutes.

Great to use for a slime fest birthday party, halloween or simply for some fun in the back yard.

The kids will love this and I think the parents will too as in making it yourself you know it is not toxic.
