Space Slime!

Materials:

 

  • 2 Bowls
  • 1 Stirrer
  • Green  food coloring (or choice of color)
  • Bottle of clear glue
  • Box of Borax
  • Water

Now Follow These Steps:

First: Mix together the bottle (5oz) of clear glue and 1/2 cup room temp water.  

Second: Add 3 drops of green food coloring to the glue mixture and stir, and set aside.

Next: Mix 1 cup of lukewarm water in a bowl with 1 teaspoon (or more if needed) of Borax in the bowl, stir well until the Borax settles at the bottom of the mixture.

Finally: Combine the glue solution and the borax solution and stir until changes!

Here’s What’s Happening!

The Borax is causing a chemical reaction that makes the glue molecules stick together even tighter and form something called Polymers, which makes Slime!
