Here is the basic recipe thanks to About.com Chemistry:
2. In a separate container (We use quart zip-lock baggies) mix 1/2 cup glue* with 1/2 cup water.
3. Now we squeeze instead of mix in Step #2. Pour the Borax water into the glue baggie, get most of the air out, and then seal it, and start squeezing. It should start "gooing" up rather quickly.
This, at least for us, is NOT an exact science, probably because I don't like pouring glue in my measuring cups, but it does work. You will have some excess water to pour out of the bag, but soon you will have Ooglit!
We made it a bit more watery to use as a lake for the this dino-diarama school project. The specks are green glitter that we thought might look like weeds of some sort.
Yeah, I guess I need to start checking Bear's bag more carefully because she packed it when we went to Hilton Head. Little Stinker!
This stuff does hold form and can work a lot like Play-doh. We like making a rose out of it!
Have fun, and Mr. Elmer's Glue peeps, if you see this and want to send me a variety pack of fun glue I would not be opposed! We could make a lot of this Ooglit in my house if I turned the girls loose with your glue! Just sayin'..........:-)
