What kid, especially a boy, doesn't like the ooey, cold feeling of slime running through your fingers! So when I found a pin for making your own slime, I knew, that if it worked, I would be the coolest mom ever! Boy,this one did NOT disappoint. The boys had a blast with it and it was super easy to do! I like easy, the boys loved the slime, win-win!
But unfortunately the lighting was horrible in my dining room because it was dusk, so the no flash didn't pick up the awesome colors and with the flash was too washed out. So you will have to believe me that Evan made neon green and Carter made neon blue! We also tried using the glow-in-the-dark paint, but it didn't work. Maybe we will add more next time.
Evan, Carter and our 13 year old neighbor, Aaron, all made their own. And seriously, this slime brought hours of entertainment! Even the next day the boys played with it. We kept the slime in ziploc plastic baggies over night.
We followed the instructions in the video:
Played with it for a few moments:

Seriously people, this has been our favorite science activity all summer, for the kids and the parents! This should be on your must-do list!
