We love our quick and easy homemade liquid starch slime recipe. We show you how you can whip up slime in no time! For this particular slime making activity, I used half a recipe per color.

I only wanted enough to fill a few eggs.  You could easily fill a couple eggs with each color with the batches of Easter egg slime we made.

Easter egg slime looks cool in a plastic egg. Make sure to check out our slime surprise eggs too. You can easily add fun little items to our homemade slime.

You can also use these plastic eggs to make other cool science and STEM activities for the kids to try out. Check out our EASTER SCIENCE collection for great ideas.

Kids love the way slime oozes and stretches too. This makes slime great for tactile sensory play from time to time. We have so many fun sensory play recipes to check out. It’s always great when you can combine science and play into one easy activity.

THE SCIENCE BEHIND THE HOMEMADE SLIME RECIPE

What’s the science behind the slime? The borate ions in the slime activators  (sodium borate, borax powder, or boric acid) mix with the PVA (polyvinyl-acetate) glue and forms this cool stretchy substance. This is called cross linking!

The glue is a polymer and is made up of long, repeating, and identical strands or molecules. These molecules with flow past one another keeping the glue in a liquid state. Until…

When you add the borate ions to the mixture, it starts to connect these long strands together. They begin to tangle and mix until the substance is less like the liquid you started with and thicker and rubberier like slime!

Picture the difference between wet spaghetti and leftover spaghetti the next day. As the slime forms the tangled molecule strands are much like the clump of spaghetti!

Is slime a liquid or solid? We call it a Non-newtonian fluid because it’s a little bit of both!

Of course, the colors won’t stay separated for long, and that’s just part of the fun. We discovered this when we first made our rainbow slime. Our ocean slime is also something you must see!

It was the most beautiful thing as the colors mixed together and swirled around each other.


If you are looking for something a little different to try for an Easter science activity this year, our Easter egg slime is perfect.

Plus, you can totally use these plastic eggs for more awesome science like our erupting eggs, egg races, and egg launchers!
