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.
PVA glue (white or clear)
Food colouring (optional)
Baking soda (Bread soda)
ReNu contact lens solution
Bowl for mixing and something for stirring
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.
This gave a great slime that was stretchy and non-sticky and lasted well once placed in a sealed bag or container.
