Is your child ready for some homemade slime? This gooey, squishy recipe will introduce your second grader to the world of measurements without seeming like a lesson or a chore. Honestly, could making slime
ever be boring? What You Need:
2 teaspoon Borax powder
1 cup glue
3 cups of water
What You Do:
Help your child pour 2 teaspoon of Borax powder and 2 cup of water into a bowl.
Have her stir the mixture together until the powder fully dissolves in the water.
In a separate bowl, let your child mix 1 cup of glue with 1 cup of water.
Let her add a few drops of food coloring to the glue mixture. Encourage her to pick whatever color she wants! Green is a standard color for slime, but orange or purple slime could be fun as well.
Dump the Borax mixture into the bowl holding the glue mixture.
Have your child stir for 5-10 seconds.
Let her use her hands to stir the gooey mixture.
Once the slime begins to firm up, store it in an airtight container.
After a few hours have passed, let your child open up the container and play with her homemade slime!
