Green slime, pink slime, diy slime.. we’re learning how to make slime today folks with a closer look at a lot of different ways to get it done. What I love about slime is that it’s gross and disgusting and it really brings out the kid in adults and kids no matter where they come from absolutely love this stuff. Whether you’re going the homemade route, going with slime science kits or you’re feeling adventurous and want to take a walk on the wild side and experiment with creating your own spin off version that you can call your own, the sheer experience of slime is one all of it’s own.
Enough already with the introduction.. let’s get to the slime.
It’s time to learn how to make some slime and that’s exactly what you’re going to do with the Scientific Explorer Sci Fi Slime Science Kit. Slime is just one of those weird things that is just too much fun to put down. There’s nothing else quite like it. With that said, through the magic of hydrophilic polymers this kit makes it possible for you to create SLIME !
You get a bunch of supplies with this kit including the pretty common elements (will vary depending on the slime kit that you get as you read through this post, but I wanted to introduce them here first) like sodium tetraborate, zinc sulfide, magnetite, guar gum, themochromic pigment, polyvinyl alcohol, glue solution, red coloring, yellow coloring, blue coloring, a pipette and stir sticks.
This Scientific Explorer Sci Fi Slime Science Kit will allow you to make different types of slime like slime that comes alive, color changing slime, slime that is attracted to magnets and more.
Learning how to make slime teaches your child how to measure, follow step by step directions, organize ingredients, work with several different elements and to experiment as they embrace the wonderful world of science.
What I love about the Scientific Explorer Sci Fi Slime Science Kit is that it’s easy to use and it’s a quality learning lab that helps children learn while keeping them engaged. You and your children are going to love some slime fun.
You’ve all seen it right, the slime, the oh so disgusting slime. Well of course you have unless you’ve been living under a rock for a really long time. Think Ghostbusters.. well maybe you haven’t seen that movie either, but the ghost busting hero’s get slimed A LOT by the ghosts in that film.. and some may say so cool and others would say.. ew, sooo gross, but there’s one thing that I think for the most part is true when it comes to slime and it’s the fun fact that there’s something that makes you really curious about it.
Well DIY slime kits offer you a real opportunity to engage your curiosity. Among the supplies you’ll get include glue, glitter, gloves, molding clay, bowls and containers for mixing etc.
With that said, this DIY slime kit is good for all ages. You can even play slime games with it once you get it created like blowing slime bubbles or maybe even throwing a slime party with a bit more effort and added extras to heighten the fun (think Pinterest for more ideas).
What I really like about this kit even though these are many ingredients you could find and put together on your own is that you get just enough to make it fun and to create lots of slime to get your children or even friends that might be over to experience the harmless yet pretty disgusting world of slime.
I also love the educational component to it.. that you are educating kids at the same time they are working with their hands, using their minds and creativity to find other avenues for how they can use the slime once it’s been created.
DIY slime kits promotes spending time with your children as well and those are the days that kids aren’t soon to forget.
As a kid, can you remember your first glow in the dark experience ? Maybe you can or can’t, but the awesomeness of anything “glow in the dark” is that it was so different about anything else in your life. To this day, the beauty of things that glow in the dark is just something that has always kept it’s appeal and wonder.
What’s even more interesting is that the list of things that glow in the dark just keeps growing too. The same can be said for glow in the dark slime. Think of all the fun words to describe slime that glows in the dark and just moves so slowly across any surface. Talk about something that captures your attention and engages your senses in a way that few other things do in the same way.
This DIY Glow In The Dark Slime Science Kit gives you as the adult a chance to let your inner child out while you explore the science kit with your children and other children that your child may know that want to play with this kit too.
With that said, this DIY Glow In The Dark Slime Science Kit is one of those kits that have very few elements to work with.
For some parents that want to take baby steps into working with slime, this might a very appealing kit to go with. There are two different colors of slime that you can make with this slime kit. The colors are blue and green. I also really like that there are just a few instructions and is very straight forward with this slime kit and addresses the question of how to make slime with a lot of pre setup assistance for you.
While I know that surely there are parents that may want to make slime from scratch, this kit isn’t nearly as involved as some other slime kits may be, but it’s a great starter into making slime and I love that especially for those parents that want a really cool project for their younger children and that’s exactly what you’ll get from this DIY Glow In The Dark Slime Science Kit.
As a child, I can’t remember ever making a lot of really cool stuff in class. As a matter of fact, I think the only thing that ever stuck out to me in science class was doing dissections (yuck and definitely not good memories there). But even with that said, there are some really outstanding Science teachers that really make learning Science memorable and if you’ve ever been blessed enough to have a teacher that really got into Science and showed you the absolute fun and fantastic world of it that alone can make a world of difference in the overall effect of it.
Without question, how we engage our children with any content regardless of the subject changes their outlook, interest and engagement with it. Creating slime with the classroom slime kit is very minimal in actual products to use to create slime. With that said, there are many different ways to make slime and this kit comes with a PVA solution (an alcohol solution), the borax cross linker solution, a stirrer, mixing stick and a couple of cups. It’s a very straight forward kit that allows for the creation of slime without all the extras that you may find in other slime kits on how to make slime.
I personally think that this is great solution for the classroom as the name of it (classroom slime kit) implies. This is definitely the kind of kit that is more geared towards greater adult intervention and / or supervision because of the alcohol solution, but evenso, regardless of so few elements to use, your children will still enjoy getting to experience making slime with this classroom slime kit.
It’s pretty uncanny how the oddest things entice our children right ? We walk into stores and within minutes, you hear the inevitable, “can I have that” or “can we get that” ? All the while you’re thinking, if we get this, you won’t be interested in it after 3 days. For many things, this truly is probably the truth because our kids interest change like the weather. Everyday it’s something different. But there’s something enticing about slime even to us as adults. Crazy right. Something about slime is so far removed from the more common aspects of our day that just invokes a response in you like nothing else.
The Slime Science Lab – Make Glowing Slime science kit is going to do the same. For such an easy slime kit, it makes some pretty awesome glow in the dark slime, I’ve gotta say. Even better yet, it makes learning Science fun and hey, there’s nothing like getting some extra bang for your buck. With this kit, you’re going to get some green slime powder, a container for the slime once you’ve made it (so no worries mom and dad about having to use your good Rubbermaid storage bins for this stuff), the stirring stick and a guide that gives you other cool options for what you can do with your slime.
With that said, I truly love how simple this Slime Science Lab – Make Glowing Slime kit is and it’s going to work out really well as you try this experiment with your children.
Do you remember the first time you ever touched slime ? Not sure of a word that might describe “your” experience, but either way it was memorable right ? Oh the disgustingly beautiful slime.. there’s nothing else quite like it and it’s something that you never quite forget either. Now how many silly things like slime take residence in our minds for years and years and even beyond that make you think about you and friends making all kinds of goofy faces, pointing at each other and trying to put the slime on each other and watching everyone run away from it. Oh, those were the days 🙂
Well here’s another DIY Slime Kit – (Make Your Own Fluffy Slime) kit to help those good old days come alive again with the added benefit of seeing your kids enjoy the fun of slime too. This kit is a 4 stage kit so it’s not really involved even if it sounds like it is. This is a nice kit to introduce children to making slime and also gives children the opportunity to focus on pertinent learning skills such as following directions and working with different elements that are required in this process of learning how to make slime through this simple making slime kit.
As I said there are 4 stages to this. I refer to them as stages but the kit will refer to them as “steps”. The first stage is the slime base. The second stage is your slime fluff. Stage 3 is the slime bond and stage 4 is what activates it all and that’s the borax.
Following the directions successfully will be your masterfully disgusting creation of fluffy slime. Go and slime a friend for fun when you’re done.
Slime looks like fun, but it’s definitely something that you’ll want to make sure that the kids aren’t enticed to see what it tastes like. One of the things that I love about working with slime is how vibrant it is. Seriously, so many cool colors. Pink slime, blue slime, green slime… I mean seriously take your pick in the fun slime rainbow. Even though it looks really cool, there are ingredients used in creating slime in just about any DIY slime kit or method to make slime that shouldn’t end up in the mouths of any child so please be sure to always engage in the fun of learning how to make slime “with” your children.
With that said, Scientific Explorer Slime Time Mix It is a really nice kit that makes the activity of making slime fun, fast and easy. Three words that sound great to us as parents right and will engage our kids in something that they’ll love at the same time too.
The Scientific Explorer Slime Time Mix It gives kids the opportunity to make the most popular kind of slime which is the green glow in the dark slime and vary the color of the slime that can be made too. It also comes with the activator, stirrer, instructions and containers for slime storage.
Nevertheless, with all that said, once you start, in literally about 3 to 4 minutes you’ll have slime ready to play with. I really love this kit for how easy and fast slime can be made and there’s nothing like getting a few cool points as a parent for making slime with your loved ones too.
How many types of slime can be made ? No matter what we guess, we’re both probably going to be wrong, but a very cool piece of information is that there might not be a true number anyway. I guess the same could be said with respect to the different types of slimes that can be made too. Oh to delve into the mind of a child and wonder what types of slime they would make if they could, but hey that’s what slime kits are for right ?
So let’s talk about another slime kit that teaches kids how to make slime and helps them grow their interest in science and chemistry. The Scientific Explorer Slime Science Mini Lab helps you to create 5 different types of slime. Of the different variations includes some pretty awesome stuff. The first one is called “Glooze”. Glooze is pretty fun to make. The next is called Wiggly Wonder. I love the nifty names they’ve given to each type of slime kids can make with this slime lab. The next type of slime kids can make is called Sewer Slime. The first time I saw this one I immediately went back to thinking about the Ghostbusters. Oh come on.. I know you did too. The next fun iteration of slime the kids can make is Flip Flop Slime and the last is called Power Putty.
I don’t know about you, but it all sounds pretty cool to me and I know it will engage your children in something they don’t get to do everyday. Oh and by the way, the Scientific Explorer Slime Science Mini Lab even comes up with some slimmy jokes you can tell too as part of the fun !
Now here’s a blast from the past, do you remember Nickelodeon and when slime became all the rage on that show ? It wasn’t like appealing slime, it was slime that was just strange and weird right. We’re talking about retuning your mind all the way back to the 1990’s. Talk about turning back the years. Additionally, did you know that slime by touch or just by viewing it can be somewhat soothing ? Who knew. It’s just so unlike anything else that it just draws you and before you know it, you’ve been sucked in to all of it’s slimmy goodness.
With that said, the next slime kit that I want to share with you is the ETA hand2mind Cool Kits for Science – Brilliant Slime Kit. For many of the kits that I’ve talked about, they aren’t primarily meant for large groups. However, that changes with this kit that you can use with up to 30 people. Wow, now that’s a slime party for sure.
As for the elements that you’ll be working with in the ETA hand2mind Cool Kits for Science – Brilliant Slime Kit include the instructions of course. Oh where would we without those. Nevertheless, there’s a PVA solution, sodium borate solutions, mixing cups and more to complete everything that will be needed for everyone to take part and participate so they can enjoy the making slime experience.
Just when you think that things couldn’t get stranger (well let’s be honest we are talking about slime after all) we’re about to take things to another level with another variation of slime that I’m going to talk about briefly along with a few other options that will lead to the end of this slimy post.
You’d think that growing up from childhood into adulthood would mean retaining a great deal of our creativity, but I just shake my head as I think about it and know that the unfortunate reality is that it may not be true. Well before I dig myself into a hole, I’m talking about that kid type of creativity that usually gets diluted as we grow into adults. I know it’s just so wrong right ? But evenso, the next bit of slimy fun that I wanted to bring to the table is something called the Dunecraft Green Snotty Slime Science Kit.
A bit of a strange name right ? Basically the Dunecraft Green Snotty Slime Science Kit makes a textured type of slime that really does look like (get ready for it) BOOGERS (omg moment for the day). Ohhh, how the kids are going to love this one and it’s by far the easiest of the slimes to make. This one is absolutely a great introduction for the budding beginner of a slime enthusiast in your home.
All in all, these are wonderfully good recommendations for getting your kids started with slime in addition to even these recommendations too:
Whether you’re trying to make slime at home with a kit or on your own, learning how to make slime is an experience that you and your children aren’t likely to forget anytime soon. Get a slime kit and have some fun helping your child learn a little science having some disgustingly creative fun.
