Frist off let me say I have never ever been a slime fan. I have seen it fail more times than I can count! But my girls really wanted to do it and I kept saying no and no again.
When it came time to change up our sensory play for the week I got asked if we had ever made slime before. I could say no and mean it. My girls say me say that and said please mom can we try. I emailed the person and she sent me a promo copy of her new book called Ultimate Slime Guide.
We have been having a camping theme this last week and we talked about what colors we might make. We talked about brown and green. That was for the dirt and the trees.
Here the ingredients we used:
- clear glue
- saline solution
- baking soda
- medium sized bowls
- food coloring
- green glitter
- black rocks
We used the recipe from the Ultimate Slime Guide.
We followed the directions to mix the liquids altogether. The book’s directions were great for this! We had fun while making both slimes.
We had fun watching the science happen and how we went from the liquid to the solid.
Soon we were kneading away with the slime having tons of fun playing with it.
Then we just had fun stretching out the slime all over. It was fun to see how far it would stretch.
The last thing we did was add rocks into our slime. This was loads of fun to see how they would do it. They love swishing it made going in.
After they had played for a while they hade some fun digging out the rocks. This was a great fine motor activity for them.
One part I loved about the book was talking about storage of the slime. I don’t always plan for something like that. It was nice to see that in there. I got two containers for our slime. And when we were done making and playing with the slime we made sure everyone washed their hands and the area they were playing in.
I can say that I loved the book. We are going to get a physical copy so my girls can look through and see what they want to make.
