If you remember, a few weeks ago, I was telling you about how I want to do some fun learning activities with my kids over the summer break! One of the areas I want to focus on is science. My kids are a little too small to understand many of the principles behind science experiments, but just getting them thinking about what can happen when you mix different things together is completely age appropriate. So, today, we decided to whip up a batch of slime!
- Glue (clear or white)
- Food coloring
You mix borax with water and set aside. In another bowl, mix your glue, water and food coloring. Thomas wanted green and Olivia wanted blue, so I did two drops of each color. Then, you pour in the borax/water solution and watch the magic happen!
When you first start mixing it, it seems like it might never come together, but I promise if you keep going, you will be rewarded!
This activity lasted us an hour, and seeing as it only took us about 5 – 10 minutes to make it, you can tell what a hit it was. Even my two year old played with it the whole time. Trust me, this stuff is awesome – even I got in on the fun.
