How To: Make Slimy Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Ooze at Home

Make Slimy Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Ooze at Home

It's been a minute since Michael Bay released his tragedy of a remake of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. As a huge fan of the cartoon and the movies from the '90s, I have made it a point to not watch the latest this franchise has to offer—I'm certainly not in the business of ruining my childhood.

But the awfulness of the remake aside, the TMNT resurgence means I'm celebrating the comeback of everybody's favorite teenage reptiles. Thankfully, Todd's Kitchen has a tutorial for mutant ooze that's more believable than Megan Fox as April O'Neil. Cowabunga!

What You'll Need

How to Build

  1. Mix ½ tsp of borax and a ½ cup of water in one bowl until the borax has fully dissolved.
  1. Mix the entire bottle of glue with a ½ cup of water in a separate bowl.
  1. In the glue and water bowl, place 2 drops of the green food coloring, then 5 drops of the yellow food coloring.
  1. Mix it all together.
  1. Add the bowl of the borax and water mixture to the greenish mixture and stir it all together until it forms your ooze.

Now that your mixture is positively oozed together, you can play with it, throw it at your enemies, or chuck it against the wall. And because it's non-toxic, it's okay if it ends up in your kid's mouth (or yours). The Secret of the Ooze is yours!

All you need is a 2-liter bottle and some ABS pipe adapters and plugs.
