b) Add a few drops of food coloring to the glue based on the desired food item (e.g., green for watermelon slime, brown for chocolate slime).
c) Optional: Add a drop or two of food extract for a scent that matches the food item (e.g., vanilla extract for sugar cookie slime).
d) Gradually add liquid starch to the glue mixture while stirring continuously.
