Supplies Needed for Pretend Snot Recipe:

  • 4 oz Glitter School Glue – We used purple clear-ish color as when you add green to purple you will get a brownish hue
  • 1/8 cup of Liquid starch
  • 5-10 drops of Food Coloring – Yellow and Green were the colors we used
  • (Optional) 1/8th teaspoon of Borax  –  Without this ingredient the recipe will be slightly harder to clean
  • Water

Instructions to Make Pretend Snot Slime

Step 1

Dump your glue into a bowl.

Step 2

Fill the empty glue container with water and dump that into the bowl as well. Mix until the glue is watery.

Step 3

Add the liquid starch and continue to stir as the mixture thickens.

Slime Making Tip #1:  The first time I made this I used more starch for a firmer consistency. So feel free to add more if you prefer thick snot. If you are adding more starch, wait about 5 min. Sometimes it will thicken on its own.

Step 4

To aid in the cleanup we mixed 1/8th teaspoon (a big pinch) of borax into 1 tablespoon of water.  We mixed the water and borax and poured that into our goop. The borax aided in the “release” so when you pick up the snot no residue is left behind.

Slime Making Tip #2: If you are worried about toddlers who put things in their mouths you can omit the Borax and add another teaspoon of starch in its place.

The possibilities are endless.

This stuff is super stringy, super slimey, and looks just like a loogey.

Storing the Homemade Slime

You can leave a pile of this on the table to dry. It still lifts off the surface and keeps the “fresh” look for hours.

To store, place in an airtight container.
