Slime Recipe for your Classroom

Slime Recipe for your ClassroomLast year we decided to do slime with our students for Halloween. It was totally successful! Here you have the steps we followed to do it! They practiced different ingredients and cooking methods.Step 1: Place two teaspoons of white glue in one of the containers. Add three drops of edible dye and mix everything until it looks uniform. For more intense color, add dye.Step 2: in another bowl add two tablespoons of detergent and one of water and stir until mixed.Step 3: join the two mixtures and stir until a uniform dough forms. Knead with your hands until you get a better consistency.The traditional recipe contains borax but it is an ingredient questioned by many specialists that should not be handled by children. Borax (boric acid or sodium borate) is a product present in the composition of soaps, detergents, disinfectants and pesticides that are also used in the manufacture of enamels, glass, and ceramics.While there are no restrictions on the sale of borax and can be obtained in pharmacies, it is important to keep in mind that it is labeled in a special way so that it is not confused with bicarbonate because it is toxic. In the skin it does not present major complications but, if consumed, it can cause gastrointestinal problems and, in more serious cases, renal and cardiac.Slime can be achieved without directly manipulating that component or even without adding it. It is advisable that children use ingredients such as cornstarch, flours and edible dyes to make this type of crafts.
