12 cups cold water
1 gallon container
1 cup liquid dish detergent
2 ounces glycerine
Pour the water into the empty gallon container. Add the dish soap and glycerine. Shake gently to mix. Pour into smaller containers (Small containers with screw-on lids make great Xmas gifts)

Screw on tops, and tie on a blower. Blowers: plastic rings from soda six-packs; wire hangers bent into circles; jar-lid rings, etc) to each container with a piece of string or ribbon.

1 quart + 1 cup water
1/4 cup Borax (available at supermarkets in the
laundry detergent section)
2 large jars with lids
1 cup white glue
Food coloring
Paper cups
Resealable plastic bags
Pour 1 quart of water and the Borax into one of the large jars. Stir to dissolve. Then pour the glue, 1 cup water, and a few drops of food coloring into the other jar, replace the lid, and shake hard. You now have 2 jars of solution (a Borax solution and a glue solution.)
Make the Slime: pour2 tablespoons of the Borax solution into a paper cup. Stir in 6 tablespoons of the glue solution. Watch! The mixture suddenly becomes thick and slimy. Stir hard, then pour off any extra liquid. Knead the slime with your hands until smooth. Place in a resealable plastic bag to give as Xmas gifts.
