Last month, I tried a new experiment with my children which is very popular online nowadays, it is called “slime”. Before I took the decision to do this lesson I needed to know why everybody is obsessed with slime what it was. 

WHAT IS SLIME?

Slime magic starts when you add something called sodium borate to water. In laundry detergent, these are already mixed, but some slime makers do it themselves. Homemade slime is sticky, gooey and fun. My children had a great time making it and that's why I  decided to share this post with you. 

HOW TO MAKE SLIME WITH GLUE. 

WHAT DO YOU NEED TO MAKE SLIME?

Glue

Liquid laundry detergent (Dixan in Spain)

Shaving cream (Optional)

Food colouring (Optional)

STEPS:

Get out your mixing bowl and spoon and get started by following these steps:

Add some glue to your mixing bowl. This does not need to be an exact measurement. Remember, you can experiment with the amounts to achieve your desired consistency. If you prefer a fluffier slime, add shaving cream. 

For slime with colour, add some food colouring when you add the shaving cream.

Put Dixan detergent into a bowl with glue. You will add less detergent than glue. Start with a ratio of about 1:4 and modify as necessary.

Mix ingredients together with a spoon until your slime feels and looks how you want it.

EDUCATIONAL PURPOSE.
