Fun Slime...

The Science Mommy loves mixtures like this one!

Ages: This is best for Big Kid Scientists

Materials:

  • 2 cups white glue
  • 1 cup liquid starch
  • Food Coloring
  • Bowl 
  • Spoon
  • Zip-Lock bag

Procedures:  With supervision, Big Kid Scientists can measure everything themselves.
  • Pour 2 cups white glue into a bowl
  • Add 1 cup liquid starch
  • Add drops of food coloring for fun
  • Mix with the spoon (The Science Mommy often uses her fingers)
  • Slime can be stored in an airtight container

Questions for Kid Scientists:
  • How do the different materials affect the quality of slime?  What happens with too much glue or too much starch?
  • Is the slime a solid or a liquid?  
  • Research:  What is a non-newtonian liquid?
