PATRIOTIC SLIME SCIENCE
Did you know that slime is also an excellent science lesson for kids? Is it a liquid or a solid? It stretches but then it breaks. It makes a ball and bounces. It feels slimy and wet, but it isn’t! These are some of the interesting observations my five-year old made as we explored this slime recipe. It takes the shape of the container you put it in like a liquid, but you can pick it up like a solid! Read a little more in-depth here about polymers and chemistry. We aren’t quite there yet but sure had a lot of fun just the same!
We added small flags to our patriotic themed slime sensory play!
Sticking the flags into your homemade slime is also great fine motor practice for kids!
Slime is an amazing tactile sensory experience for kids as well! We enjoy whipping up new sensory recipes all the time! Check out more of them here. You can also read about the benefits of sensory play in our sensory play resource guide.
