FAKE SNOT FOR EDIBLE SLIME SCIENCE
AWESOME SLIME RECIPES FOR KIDS
We made a few versions of this cool science experiment. We experimented with varying amounts of corn syrup and wound up with some very interesting types of slime.
FAKE SNOT RECIPE
- Unflavored Gelatin, 3 packs
- Corn Syrup
- Food Coloring
HOW TO MAKE FAKE SNOT
I like to use two bowls for making this fake snot.
STEP 1. Mix 1/2 cup of boiling water and three packets of Knox brand unflavored gelatin in one bowl. Mix the gelatin and water with a fork. Add the gelatin in slowly but it will still tend to clump just the same. Let it stand for 5 minutes.
STEP 2. In another bowl, measure out a 1/2 cup corn syrup. Slowly add the gelatin mixture to corn syrup until it reaches the desired consistency, snot like! The fork helps to pull up cool strands of fake snot!
WHAT’S THE SCIENCE?
This is messy sensory science play! Although this is made with gelatin, the mixture of water and gelatin still makes a polymer. The proteins in the gelatin combined with the corn syrup to form gooey strands that resemble your snot.
The equal parts gelatin mixture to corn syrup made the perfect fake snot that you could pick up and watch flow like mucous. We used less corn syrup for our edible slime and made a thicker textured slime. Play around with different amounts of corn syrup to check out different textures.
Have you always wanted to play with fake gooey snot? You can even taste it too! It’s simply gelatin and sugar, but is not very tasty.
