Silly Slime

Will fascinate all ages. In some ways it will act like a solid. At other times it is a liquid. Children really like to mix this with their hands. Encourage your child to mix and play with the slime before it is completely mixed together, the fun and learning starts here. Explore the texture and talk about what it feels like, sticky, slimy, cold and powdery.

What's needed

1 cup water

1-1/2 to 2 cups cornstarch

Natural food coloring

Natural flavored extracts

Let's make it

Put the water, coloring, and extract into a bowl. Slowly stir in the cornstarch. Knead until smooth. Store in an airtight container. Will dry out if left exposed too long. Just add a small amount of water.
