Creative Ways to Use Slime in the Classroom
Kids love slime! As a teacher or homeschool mom, you can capitalize on that by adding slime to your lessons. Here are some fun ideas for incorporating slime in your upcoming lesson plans:
- Read Bartholomew and the Ooblek by Dr. Seuss. Then, make your own “ooblek” with this slime recipe to bring the story to life for your kids.
- Use slime in your science lessons to explore different states of matter. Ask your little learners to decide if slime is a solid or a liquid. Then, get them to explain their answers.
- Check out some of my other slime recipes too. After making a few different kinds, have your children compare and contrast the different kinds of slime using a venn diagram.
Host a Slime Making Party
Does your child have a birthday coming up? Slime makes an awesome party theme! Use this easy slime recipe to host a creative slime making party with your kids and all their friends. Provide each child with slime ingredients and a container.
Making slime will give the kids something entertaining to do at the party, create lots of fun memories, and provide a cool party favor for every child in attendance. You can provide a variety of embellishments for kids to mix into their slime for a unique creation they’re sure to love. We like adding glitter, sequins, and tiny plastic gems.
How to Avoid Slime Messes
Yes, slime can be messy if you’re not careful. But there are some steps you can take to make sure your slime isn’t too messy. Follow these pro tips:
- Use the right glue. You won’t really save any money buying cheap glue for slime, because most recipes need Elmer’s glue to work properly.
- Making slime is a science. It’s important to use the right measurements if you want your slime to turn out properly. Otherwise, your slime might be too liquidy or too sticky, making it extra messy.
- Getting the right saline solution is important too. You will need a saline solution that contains borax (in the US, most do).
Slime Recipe with Glue
Elmer’s Glue Slime Recipe
All you need to make slime is these few ingredients below.
Easy Slime Recipe
After you’ve gathered your ingredients pour out 5 oz of Elmer’s white glue into a small bowl. Add ½ cup of water and stir until the glue and water are thoroughly mixed.
If you would like to color your slime, add in a few drops of food coloring. You can also use paint, soap colorants or pigments.
Next, add ½ tsp baking soda and stir. This will help determine your slime’s thickness.
Add 1 tbsp of saline solution and stir quickly. Your slime will begin to form and pull away from the sides of the bowl.
The amount of saline solution will determine your slime’s stickiness.
Once the slime has pulled away from the sides of the bowl, knead it for a few minutes. It will still be sticky at first.
You can add more Saline to make it less sticky, but only add 1 Tablespoon at a time and knead your slime thoroughly.
Gifts for Slime Lovers
You can print out the labels and run them through a sticker maker or use sticker paper in your printer. Attach the slime labels to the front of the container and give them away for party favors or slime gift ideas.
You can use DIY slime for sensory play, calming an overwhelmed child, or just enjoy some fun with colorful homemade slime.
