Then add the alphabet letters

We used  these alphabet letters, and they worked great!  We have used them for lots of other activities too, and we will definitely be able to re-use them whenever this slime goes out of circulation in our home.

In a separate bowl mix one teaspoon of borax with 1 and 1/3 cups of very warm water and stir well

Once the borax is dissolved, combine the two bowls together and begin to mix with your hands.  The slime will immediately begin to form.

At first the slime will appear very sticky, but as you mix and handle it it will become very smooth on the outer surface.  If it is still a bit sticky add a very small amount of borax to a teaspoon of hot water and add it to the slime.

Have kids hunt for letters while they play!  Our slime has 5 of each alphabet letter.  One fun way to play is to have kids play color letter eye spy and find letters of a certain color.  You can also have them see how many of a certain letter they are able to find.  Can they find all 5?

A Few Tips:  Borax can be found in the laundry aisle of most stores or online here.  When the slime is not being played with store it in an air tight container; it will last for several months.
