Slime

SAFETY FIRST!

Make sure to wash your hands before starting the project. And remember to HAVE FUN!



MATERIALS NEEDED:
  • 1/2 cup Clear PVA School Glue

  • 1 tablespoon Contact Solution (must contain boric acid and sodium borate)

  • 1/2 cup of Water

  • 1/2 tsp Baking Soda

  • Food colouring, confetti, glitter, and other fun mix-ins

WHAT TO DO:

STEP 1: To a bowl add 1/2 cup of glue and mix with 1/2 cup of water.

STEP 2: Add colouring and glitter! The more glitter the better. Start with one drop of colour. It goes a long way! Mix

STEP 3: Add 1/2 TSP of baking soda {helps firm the slime} and mix.

STEP 4: Add 1 TBL of solution. Again make sure that your solution contains boric acid and sodium borate. These are the slime activators.

STEP 5: Really whip it up to mix and you will feel the slime come together!

STEP 6: Once you have mixed it up well, you want to knead it well! Squirt a couple drops of solution onto your hands and pull the slime out of the bowl. You will notice that it is sticky at first but the more you knead it the less sticky it gets.

STEP 7: Time to play and learn! Slime is science too! You can store your slime in a reusable container. Wash hands and surfaces thoroughly after making and playing with slime.


Is slime a liquid or solid? We call it a Non-newtonian fluid because it’s a little bit of both!
