Stir well and set the cup aside.

Step 3: Add the glue

Take the empty party cup and fill it with an inch of white glue.

Add about an inch of white glue to the second cup.  Take off the cap, it makes it easier!

Take the party cup containing the water and Borax and add 3 tablespoons of that mixture to the cup of glue.

Add 3 tablespoons of your water/Borax mixture to the glue

Stir it up good!

Step 4: Add food coloring

Now lets get your slime looking like real Monster Slime!  Go ahead and add a few drops of your favorite color food coloring.  Then, stir again.

Making your own slime is as easy as that!
