- 8 ounces of craft glue such as Elmer's
- 2 cups of water
- Several drops of Tempera or Poster Paint for coloring the goop
- 1 1/2 teaspoons of borax powder (available at most grocery stores).
Note: Some laundry detergents contain borax, but that won't work. You need to get pure borax powder.
Pour craft glue into a mixing bowl. Slowly stir in 1 cup of water. Add several drops of paint and stir until well blended. In a separate bowl, mix one cup of warm water and the borax powder until the borax dissolves. Slowly pour the borax mixture into the glue mixture and stir for 2-3 minutes. Turn the mixture out onto a counter and knead the sticky mixture until it's smooth and stretches easily. Goop can be stored in an airtight container.
