Once all the ingredients are well enough mixed you will want to remove the slime substance from the bowl and finish working it by hand.  This whole process is really fun for the kids

Continue to work the ingredients with your hands until you have an amazing silly pumpkin putty.  You will have residual watery ingredients left in the bowl. This is normal and can be thrown away.

Tips & Storage:  Store your slime in a zip-seal bag or air-tight container between play times, and it will stay good for several months.  Borax can be found in the laundry aisle of most stores or online here.  If you are concerned about the slime staining hands I recommend using watercolors over food coloring ,but both will work great for coloring the slime.
