For my school science fair project I'm experimenting to see if mold growing on
homemade slime will turn the color of the slime.  I've already started the
project and now I'm wondering if mold will grow in time for the project due date
(Nov 28).  This is the recipe I used for the slime:
1/2 cup liquid Elmer's glue
1 tsp Borax 
1& 1/2 cups water
4 drops food coloring
The recipe I used says to put the slime in a ziplock bag and store it in the
fridge so it won't grow mold.
Thanks for your help,
