Neon slime..preschool fun!

My youngest son Ben loves squishy, gooey things so I knew we had to try making our own goo/slime. It was easier than I anticipated and  lots of fun!

The first thing that he said while holding the fresh, pink goo in his 5 year old hands was, “I love you mom!”  Project success!!

stir using plastic spoon…gently kneed ball…mixture should NOT be sticky .

The slime will start out as a highly flexible polymer.

Eventually  become stiffer and more like putty. Then you can shape it and mold it!

DO NOT EAT!!!!!

  1. I absolutely love the way yours turned out. The process of watching the slime form by pouring into the borax/water is really cool to watch for the kids. I will definitely do it this way next time we make slime!
