C is for Chemistry

(Blogging through the alphabet with Ben and Me!)

As part of Emily’s Chemistry unit in Supercharged Science, she learned about polymers and made slime! Making slime is a really fun and easy project.

Slime

  1. Combine 1/2 cup of water with 1 tsp. of borax. Stir.
  2. In another cup, mix equal parts white glue and water.
  3. Add some of the glue mixture to the borax mixture. Stir, then pull out the glob of slime.
  4. Add more glue mixture and repeat.

Add food coloring to the water to make colored slime or cut apart a highlighter pen and soak the felt pad in water to make glow-in-the-dark slime!
