Ultimate Flubber

by -A soon-to-be fashion designer (USA)
This is a very, very easy home recipe. And you don't need any measurements!

You will need:
Box of Green Lime Jell-O
Warm Water
Elmer's Glue
Plastic Bowl
Plastic Spoon
Green and Yellow Food Coloring

Mix any amount of glue and water together you want. But mix less water then glue so its slimier. Then mix in a little bit of the Jell-O in the water and glue. Add LOTS of yellow and green food coloring. Then stir.

Put plastic wrap over it and sit it in the refrigerator until it gets weirder and different. Its really fun and the first time I did it, I stirred it with my hands, and now my hands are slime green! But it comes off!... green slimegreen slime
