My big boy was too sick to go to school today but too well to be at home. He was miserable about staying home and requested to do some science because that’s what they were doing at school today. A quick google search later and I found an experiment to make Slime. It seemed easy to follow and I had everything already.
Here’s everything we used:
The steps were easy to follow and everyone was totally keen to help
Our first try was orange as you can see above and later we made a green slime varying quantities of a couple of ingredients and Master C compared their stickiness and stretchyness.
This experianment hit the spot for all the kids, especially my big boys craving for science. In the end it wasn’t so bad being at home because science at school is all about growing plants which, to quote Master C “isn’t as exciting as slime.”
