What you'll need:
1 - 4oz bottle of clear or blue gel Elmer's glue
1 cup of warm water
2-3 tablespoons of glow-in-the-dark paint
Green Neon Food Coloring
2 teaspoons of Borax
1/3 cup of warm water

"First mix together the Elmer's glue and the 1 cup of warm water. Stir in the paint and food coloring. In a separate small bowl mix together the 1/3 cup warm water and 2 teaspoons of borax. Stir until the borax is dissolved. Now add about 2 tablespoons of the borax solution to the glue solution. You WILL NOT use all of the borax solution. Stir continuously while adding the solution. The more borax solution you add the stiffer the slime will be. So if you want the slime to be more runny, then add less borax solution. You can add more green food coloring while stirring these solutions together to get your desired color of slime. It should start sticking together and you've got green glow-in-the-dark slime!"
