    We do this all the time at home. I use the recipe I was given in work. It's 250ml pva glue then add almat bio gel teaspoon by teaspoon until the mix stops sticking to everything (usually 3-4 teaspoons). Lasts ages in an airtight container. My 11 yr old got some on my brand new rug this evening so I'm not a slime advocate at the moment :(
