· , such as Elmer's glue or .
· Liquid Laundry Starch, such as (laundry aisle of fewer and fewer grocery stores ) . Put the starch in a small cup or better yet, an empty water bottle with a with one of those pop top lids (you know, the lids you can pull open and push closed.)
· A paper or styrofoam plate for mixing.
· A ziptop bag, film canister, plastic easter egg or similar container for storage of your slime
1. Squeeze a blob of glue the size of a quarter onto the plate.
2. Add about a tablespoon of liquid starch onto the glue.
3. Now, prepare to get messy. Take two fingers and use a circular motion to combine the glue and starch together. If it stays gluey, add a few more drops of liquid starch.
4. Pick up the blob and knead it in the palm of your hand, using your fingertips.
Result: You've made a cool polymer slime! Some times it comes out real slimy, sometimes it comes out more rubbery. Make several batches till you get a few you like.
· Colored Slime: Color your slime with water based colored markers and knead the color throughout them· Sparkle slime: Add glitter for outrageous glittery slime.
Polymers are very important molecules and are all around us, even inside us! The basic polymer molecule is a large molecule with repeating chains of chemical units. Polymers occur naturally as well as being manmade. Some examples of natural polymers are cellulose, starch and even DNA.Man-made polymer examples are plastics, sytrofoam, polyester and of course, Silly Putty!
