Looking for a creative Earth Day project? Try this homemade Earth Day STEM project. This slime will wow your kids and get their young minds interested in the science behind everything around them.
- 6 oz of clear “school glue”
- 1½ tablespoon of baking soda
- 1½ tablespoon contact lens solution
- Mixing bowl
- Spoon or other utensil for mixing
- Measuring spoons
- Blue and green glitter or food coloring
- Liquid watercolors are an acceptable alternative to glitter or food coloring
First, empty 6 oz of clear school glue into bowl.
Then add 1½ tablespoon of baking soda to the bowl.
After that, add 1½ tablespoon of contact lens solution.
Add as much glitter to your mixture as you’d like—the more glitter the better.
Start mixing everything together with a spoon until it solidifies, then knead it together with your hands until it’s recognizably slimy.
Once it’s taken shape, you and your kids can have ooey-gooey fun as you discuss the science behind your project and the environment. Don’t forget to keep your slime off furniture and store it in a plastic storage container.
