  1. Cut the Easter grass into roughly one inch long pieces.
  2. Pour the glue and 4 cups of water into the ziplock bag and mix well. 
  3. Add the pieces of Easter grass to the baggie with the glue and water mixture. 
  4. In a separate bowl, combine 1 cup warm water and the Borax powder and mix until the powder is dissolved.
  5. Add four tablespoons of the Borax solution in the ziplock freezer bag and mix until slime begins to form. Add additional Borax solution one tablespoon at a time if you need to thicken your slime. You will know your slime is ready when it starts to pull away from the side of the ziplock bag. 
  6. Pour the Easter Grass Slime into the bin or tray.
  7. Hide the excavation items in the slime. 
  8. Allow your Excavating Adventurers to dive in and enjoy the DIY Easter Grass Slime Search!
