The boys have been making slime at home today, experimenting with the touch and playing and having fun!
This is a great activity to do with children of all ages, I doubt that there is any child or adult that will enjoy playing with the slime.
What you will need
Box of cornflour
Water in a jug
Food colouring of your choice
We used green to look like slime
Plastic tray or a plastic tub
Put your cornflour into a tray
Add some food colouring to the water
Gently and slowly add the coloured water to the tray of cornflour an mix with a spoon, add small amounts at a time as you don’t want the mixture to be too watery. Once all combined get your hands in!
Now your ready to play!
Is the mixture a solid or a liquid?
The boys say both.
Roll the cornflour slime into a ball – it becomes a solid mass, once you stop it becomes slime
Try Tapping, punching, rolling it, running your fingers through it and letting your hand sink in it
The boys play with this for hours and never seem to bore of it, it can become messy but once it is dry the slime can be easily swept off of the floor and wiped away from sides. It is easy to wash off of your hands and clothes and is non-toxic, so it makes fabulous play for the younger ones. It is non sticky and can be stored away in the tub in the fridge ready to be played with the next day.
Why don’t you try it at home and don’t forget to let me know how you get on !
