Tip 2: Using colour is entirely your choice, i.e. if you want your slime to be colourful.

Tip 3: Make sure kids make slime in the presence and with the help of an adult.

Here is the recipe for slime without an activator.

  • Pour 30 g of cornstarch into 120 ml of shampoo and mix it thoroughly with a steel spoon to make it uniform.
  • If you want your slime to be colourful, you may add your desired food colour to the mixture. 
  • Three drops of colouring are more than enough, stir it quickly until the tone is even.
  • Now, pour 15 ml of water into the shampoo mixture and give it a rapid stir to make it levelled.
  • Add 15 ml more water into it and mix it well again (adding water spoon by spoon will make your slime fleecy and give it a cottony look).
  • When the mixture is evenly mixed, make a fist and mix the slime with your knuckles as if you are kneading dough.
  • Press your knuckles sturdily against the slime to squeeze it.
  • Flip it over and over again and keep rubbing it firmly.
  • Repeat this practice for at least five to seven minutes until you feel the texture of the slime is fluffy, and it is doughy in shape.
  • If you feel that the slime has become too sticky, you may add more cornstarch and continue kneading.
  • When it becomes consistent, store it in an airtight Ziploc bag to keep the moisture away.
  • Squeeze out the air from the bag and seal it to prevent it from getting dried out.
  • When you store the slime appropriately, it will last much longer.
