How to make it

  • Step 2:
  • Dissolve 1 tsp of borax into the 4 oz (1/2 cup) warm water.
  • Pour borax water into the glue mixture and stir.
  • Keep stirring, after a few seconds the glue will begin to “gel” up.
  • Step 3:
  • Pick up the glue glob and squish it around for a few moments.

  • It’s so cool, don’t you think?
