Another school year is off to a fabulous start! Our new preschoolers have been busy making friends and learning all about school this month. They have been actively engaged in play at our learning centers in the classroom and enjoying their daily specials- art, music, media and physical education. We have spent time outside and are learning yoga on rainy days. Our class loves to dance and sing! Our current favorite songs are- 5 Brown Buns, 5 Green Apples and 10 in a Bed. Please enjoy this snapshot of our classroom community!
We made slime today! The kids were able to take some home and we made a batch for our M-Th friends too! 😀
Giant Fluffy Slime:
20 ounces glue
2.5 teaspoons baking soda
Food Coloring or die…(I used frosting color, because its what I had)
2 cups shaving cream…(I used Pure Silk Sensitive Skin, because I wanted something that was low oder).
Saline Solution…(I found this in the pharmacy area, near contact cleaner at Meijer for 3.89 for two big bottles).
Big Bowl for mixing
Bowl with lid to store your slime in
Pour your glue into the big bowl. Add the baking soda and mix well.
Add your coloring. You want to make the glue mixture a shade darker than you want your final slime to be, because the shaving cream will lighten it).
Add the shaving cream and mix well.
Slowly start the squirt in some saline solution. Squirt a little in and mix well, repeat process until the slime is the texture you desire. I mixed with a spoon until it started to combine, and then I mixed the rest of it with my hands. I made mine so that it would not stick to our hands. ***(If your slime seems almost how you want it, wait for 3-4 minutes, then play with it for 2-5 minutes…if its still a little sticky add a few drops of saline solution at a time.) IF you add too much saline solution it will make your slime really hard and not stretchy.
