Directions to Make Ghost Slime
In a large bowl, pour the entire bottle of school glue. Add the water and stir with a wooden craft stick. Pour in the glitter and stir until combined.
Add the liquid starch and stir until the mixture comes together and starts pulling from the outside of the bowl. Take the slime in your hands and stretch and knead it until it reaches the desired consistency.
