Making Slime

Can you believe I actually had the courage to have the kids make SLIME?? Well I did and it was fun. I got this idea because Ricky LOVES strange feelings on her hands and experimenting with different textures. Toothpaste in the sink for example (yesterday's fiasco) so I looked up on the internet how to make slime. It was the single most weirdest feeling I have ever felt! When you pour this liquid out it is just that..liquid. It turns to a rubber like substance almost instantly. Try picking it up. It automatically turns to a liquid again! Very strange. This is how I did it.

1 cup cornstarch
1/4 cup water (may need a bit more..add as needed)
food coloring if desired

Put these ingredients in a ziplock bag and close it. Knead it and make sure it is all mixed. Well most. It can get hard to mix so just continue. Then pour out somewhere. It was very fun.

This would be a good time to purchase the "non dollar store baggies", yes?
