Slime!

SLIME!  Ooozy, gooey, squishy, squashy ... and here's how to make it:
mix 1 cup of cornstarch into 1/2 cup of water. Stir as you go.

That's all there is to it... unless you want to make gelatinous neon slime. In which case you'll need some non-toxic school glue and borax. If you want it to be transparent use clear glue.

Here's how to make gelatinous neon slime:
  • In one container mix 1 teaspoon of borax in 1 cup of water – stir until dissolved.
  • In another container, mix 1/2 cup of glue in 1/2 cup of water and stir to dissolve.
  • Pour the glue mixture into the borax solution while stirring slowly.
  • When it begins to make slime, dive in with your hands and knead it.
Here’s a video showing how to make slime with a good explanation of the cross-linked polymer you’re creating. Have fun and drop by next week for more cool stuff to do.
