Making Slime

So I think this was one of the easiest things I did this summer with the kids I looked after. We tried many different project, some failed, some were long, and somewhere just plain odd. This one however was short, easy, and they loved it. We made slime ! Want to make some slime as well ? 
All you need is two things 
Glue and liquid starch. 
The best way to make it is using a large bowl. The recipe I used worked perfectly - all you have to do is use equal parts of each. Once you have that in your bowl just use your hands to mix it. Then divide them into baggies and put some food coloring in. Because we used white glue we were able to then mix the colors - I created that color wheel above. You can also use clear glue which will give you a slime look - while using white glue gave more of the gak look. Once your done - put them in a baggie or a tub for use later. Honestly, we couldn't make enough of this stuff. 

They loved playing with it and they were mixing and learning about color theory !
