Kid Science: Make Ooey Gooey Slime
Nobody can resist digging their hands into homemade slime—and it’s a great opportunity to talk to kids about the properties of solids, liquids—and something that’s both!
Watch for a quick overview on how to make your own slime at home; step-by-step instructions are below.
You will need: 4 oz. glue, water, 1 tsp. borax (please note: you’ll want parental guidance with the measuring and mixing, just to be safe), and food coloring.
Mix the glue and and 4 oz. water together.
Stir food coloring into the glue/water mixture.
In another container, mix 1 cup water and 1 tsp. borax. If you’re doing this activity with younger children, be sure to do this step for them.
Mix the two solutions together.
