1st Class makes Slime!!

posted in: First Class News | 0

Last week was science week so Ms Kiersey’s first class concentrated on materials and textures.  We watched a short video on how to make slime then experimenting by making our own.


We used;

PVA glue (white or clear)

Food colouring (optional)

Baking soda (Bread soda)

ReNu contact lens solution

Bowl for mixing and something for stirring

Measuring spoons

A sealable bag or container to store your slime in afterwards


Then we followed a recipe:

Pour 1/8 cup (30mls) of PVA glue into the bowl

Add a few drops of food colouring if using

Add ½ teaspoon bread soda

Mix all together

Add approximately 1 teaspoon of ReNu contact lens solution while continuing to mix. We soon found out through trial and error that you get better slime if you don’t add too much contact lens solution.


Once the slime starts to stick together and comes away from the sides of the bowl, take it into your hands and start kneading and stretching it.


Our verdict:


This gave a great slime that was stretchy and non-sticky and lasted well once placed in a sealed bag or container.
