TMNT Ooze (Make Slime / Gak Recipe)

And of course a party full of boys you need Slime Right??? When I was young Nickelodeon had a show with Marc Summers (He's now a producer on Food Network) called Double Dare, the kids would get this green slime thing all over them. I've been seeing several post on Pinterest on how to make Slime / Gak and I thought how perfect for a TMNT themed party. I was not alone in this thought and found a TON of people had this same idea. I used One Artsy Mama's Recipe. Now I needed about 20 little containers so I tripled the recipe, I wish I did about 4 or maybe 5 times the recipe to give the kids more but it can get a bit spendy.

What you Need:
Elmer’s Glue – either two small 4 oz bottles, or one large 7 oz
1 Teaspoon of Borax – found in the laundry section
Green Food Coloring (I used AmeriColor Food Gel)
1/2 Cup Warm Water
Large Mixing Bowl and Spoon
Air-tight Container (I picked up little jello shot containers at Dollar Tree)
Sticker paper or adhesive labels (I used paper and glued on)

Step 1: Dump your glue bottles into the large mixing bowl.  
Step 2: Fill the empty glue bottles with water, swish it around, and pour into the bowl with the glue.
Step 3: Stir well and add food coloring to create desired color. 
Step 4: In a separate container, spoon 1 tsp of borax into 1/2 cup warm water and stir. 
Step 5: SLOWLY start to add the water to the glue mixture-make sure none of the borax granules get into the mixture. Add a little, mix with your hands, add a little, mix with your hands. It starts to form quickly, so don’t add a lot of water all at once. Keep mixing with your hands until it isn’t sticky anymore.
Step 6: Package 
Step 7: Add label. I found my label for free but now I can't find the link (here is the link of the ones that look like what I used). I printed on copy paper and then used my circle cutter to cut them out. I put a dab of glue on the back and added to the top of the container.
