It's my privilege to introduce...

...SLIME time.
It's my privilege to introduce you to Ooze Labs: Alien Slime Lab.
This kit was purchased at a local shop in Topeka, KS called The Toy Store. 
If your family has the privilege of time, I Heart Naptime offers guidance HERE for a fluffy slime experience.

Not every experiment needs a fancy lab kit either. I Heart Naptime shares fast deets on a non-fluffy version below:

MATERIALS

  • 8 ounce bottle Elmer's white school glue
  • 1 Tablespoon baking soda
  • 1 1/2 - 2 Tablespoons contact saline solution , more as needed

OPTIONAL: FOOD COLORING

    INSTRUCTIONS

    • Place glue in a bowl. If you're adding food coloring, add it now until desired color is reached. Then mix in baking soda.
    • Add 1 1/2 Tablespoons saline solution and mix until combined. Add 1/2 Tablespoon more at a time if it is too sticky. The more you add, the thicker it'll be. The less you add, the slimier it will be.
    • Stir until you can no longer stir and then kneed with your hands. It will be sticky at first, but keep moving it with your hands until it is no longer sticky and desired consistency is reached. 
    • Enjoy! Store in a covered container or ziptop bag. Best to play with on a place mat.

    NOTES

    • Use plastic bowls and spoons to make clean up easier.
    • Make sure to get the color correct before adding the saline. It’s harder to mix in when it begins to thicken.
    • For thicker slime, add more saline solution. For a slimier texture, add less saline.
    • Slime is best to play with on a place mat, plastic tablecloth or even a trash bag.
    • Recipe makes about a cup of slime. Can double or triple based on how many kids there are.
     
    To make slime extra special, feel free to add in mix in's: 
    • Food coloring
    • Scented oils
    • Glitter 
    • Mini styrofoam balls


    Doing home-grown experiments #thebonsallway usually means watching a variety of video tutorials and scrolling blog posts with similar info to what we shared above.  Keep practicing and figuring out what works best for you! It's all about enjoying the experience.
