Mommy, are we going to do more Science Experiments today?
Do you want to?
Put on your lab coats then. Today we are making Mad Scientist Slime!
Let’s find out. First, please pour your bottle of glue into your bowl.
Now you choose a color. White, purple, green, blue or pink?
I want pink and blue.
Blue and green.
Add three drops of food dye to your white glue mixture. Stir it until it looks smooth.
Okay. This is when the science happens. We are going to add a special ingredient called borax. I mixed one tablespoon of borax into this cup of water. Scoop up one tablespoon of this solution and pour it into your glue mixture. Let’s see what happens.
It’s getting all clumpy! It’s sticking to my spoon. Is it slime now?
Yes! Slime is a type of polymer. This polymer is stretchy and feels wet, but I want you to touch it. What does it feel like?
My hands are dry! It feels slippery. Can I take it out?
Daddy, look what we made. We made slime.
You made slime! Can I play? Melis, do we have any straws?
