The kids are on school holidays and the weather can be a little unpredictable at this time of year. Making this simple slime recipe is a fun activity for kids indoors or outside – give it a go today!


  • 2 cups cornflour
  • Food colouring
  • A small mixing bowl
  • 1.5 cups of water


Pour cornflour into a mixing bowl.

Stir in small amounts of water until the cornflour has become a very thick paste (about 1.5 cups).

To make the slime the colour of your choice, thoroughly stir about five drops of food colouring into the mixture.

Stir your slime REALLY slowly. This shouldn’t be hard to do.

Stir your slime REALLY fast.

This should be almost impossible.

Now punch your slime REALLY hard and fast. It should feel like you’re punching a solid.

You can keep your cornflour and water mixture covered in a fridge for several days.

If the cornflour settles, you need to stir it to make it work well again.

And that’s it! Have fun with your new slime!

Making this simple slime recipe will be a fin experience for everyone. You won’t regret it!
