Science Friday: Galaxy Slime!

People, you know how much I love hands-on, engaging, science experiments with my ‘staches.  Ya’ll also know how much I love making messes and you know I love glitter….so this Mad Science Experiment is beyond epic for my ‘staches!
You will need:
Stay-Flo Liquid Starch (laundry detergent aisle at Wal-Mart)
Glue (clear glue works better but I couldn’t find any)
watercolors  (We actually have glitter watercolors so we used those!  Yeah, big surprise we have glitter watercolors, right?!)
fine glitter
Step 1:  pour 1 entire bottle of glue into a bowl!
Step 2:  add some drops of watercolor (and glitter)

 

Step 3:  mix completely.  Add watercolor until you reach the desired color.

 

Step4: SLOWLY add the starch.  Don’t add all the starch at once.  Continue slowly adding starch until your slime is the consistency you want.
Then, GET MESSY!

 

 

AND yes people, I broke out the Mad Scientist costume!
This class is so much fun that I’m stepping up my game with costumes!
