We're making slime!
To fit with our topic of Muck, Mess and Mixtures, we are going to follow a recipe to help us create the coolest mixture of all... SLIME!
Follow these instructions to make your own:
What you will need:
1. Squeeze the glue into a mixing bowl (look for a bottle in a 100ml size if possible so you won’t have to measure it out). Add the bicarbonate of soda and mix well.
2. Add a drop or two of your chosen gel food colouring. Less colouring gives a pastel colour; the more you add, the brighter the colour. Mix until well incorporated.
3. Add the contact lens solution and mix. The slime will begin to form, going stringy before coming away clean from the bowl into a ball.
4. Once it has formed, take it out and knead it with your hands. It will be sticky at first but after about 30 seconds you’ll have a smooth and pliable ball. Add glitter at this point, if desired, and work in with your hands. Store in a pot with a lid.
Take photos of you making this (or something like it if you don't have all the ingredients) and send them in!
