Setting Up a Sticky Situation?

6 Jul

I briefly glimpsed and bookmarked this delicious recipe for ooey and gooey rainbow slime today.

I am hoping it is not too tricky to track down clear glue (and for that matter, starch)… I have a childlike desperation to make this with my nephew before the end of the summer.

All look fun while doubling as decor.

My caveat? No pinot. The bottles I scanned on their dossier-inspired site looked red. Hope to be wrong!
