Homemade Slime!! Of course one the funnest things to make and learn about matter and polymers. I had put this off for a very long time because I didn’t have Borax. I decided that it was time to get some, our Summer is running out and we need something fun and different to do.
Besides I already knew that the boys would love it because they always asked to buy slime, goop, mars mud, gak, you name it they have asked. I found this recipe on Steve Spanglers site, a site we love and frequent often.

I tripled the batch so each of the boys could have their own, nice size chunk. They all chose different colors and had fun mixing colors together to create a unique color. After they finished making it and thoroughly playing with it, we stored them in a ziploc. They are still great 2 weeks later!
A fun activity that gives you an opportunity to teach, discuss polymers as the kids are working their ingredients.
