Make and play with Ooey Gooey
Ooey Gooey is a green glob which is stretchier and slicker than Play-do. Children can play with it or make funny noises with it.
To make funny noises, start with a sturdy cup which won’t buckle or break under pressure (do not use glass). An 8-ounce cup is the best size. Roll the Ooey Gooey into a ball the size of a softball. Slowly push the Ooey Gooey into the cup and push it down using two or more fingers. Keep moving until funny noises sound.
To make Ooey Gooey: In a large bowl, stir 8 ounces of glue with 8 ounces of water. Add desired amount of green food coloring and stir well. Pour 1 cup of water into a bowl and stir in 1 1/2 teaspoons of Borax powder. Pour the Borax mixture into the glue mixture, and mix well with hands. Pour off any excess water and store in an airtight container.
