Do you like making slime? We do, here are some simple experiments of how to make some:[edit | edit source]

  • Place 2 tablespoons of PVA (polyvinyl acetate) glue in a zipper-type plastic bag and add an equal quantity of water.
  • Add 1 or 2 drops of food colour, if you want.
  • Add 1/2 teaspoon of saturated borax solution. (Borax can be bought in a pharmacy, or nag your science teacher to do this at school)
  • Squeeze the bag to mix the contents
  • When the slime has mostly formed, reach in and take out the slime. Don't be shy, it will not hurt you!
  • Knead the slime to make it smooth.
  • Puuuuuuurfect!!! You have made your slime! It should be a bit like putty.
