Kids Craft-Spring Break Day 2 OOZE

Lately my son has really been into teenage mutant ninja turtles (TMNT). This brings back so many memories from my own childhood I couldn't be more thrilled to share our love of those silly adolescent amphibians. He wants a TMNT birthday party and all the presents that he wants are TMNT. So I thought it would be fun to do a TMNT spring craft and make some green ooze.

Here are the ingredients:

  • water
  • white glue (like Elmer's™)
  • borax
  • green food coloring 
1. Pour the entire bottle of glue into a bowl (8oz).
2. Add 1 tsp of borax to 1/2 cup of warm water. Mix together.
3.Now you can add the food coloring to the glue until you get the color you want. Darker is better because it will lighten as you add the solution.

4. Pour some of the borax solution into the glue and mix vigorously with your hand. Keep adding solution until you get the consistency you like.

 Now you have the perfect ooze for any Ninja Turtle fan. Just make sure you keep it off the carpet little turtles.
