Science Reaction Experiment - Sloppy Slime

 
Make Sloppy Slime
Materials you will need:

• Water
• Teaspoon
• Cornflour
• Large bowl
• Tablespoon
• Wooden spoon
• Food colouring
flour bag
 
Slime that can’t make up its mind – one minute it’s oozing like a liquid, the next it’s acting like a tough solid.
Steps

1.  Pour some cornflour in the bowl.

2.  Add a little of the food coloring to the water.  (Food coloring can stain so be very careful).

3.  Slowly stir in some of the colored water in with the cornflour (adding a few drops at a time).

4.  Continue to stir with the wooden spoon until it starts to thicken to a paste.  You may find that you need to add more water or cornflour to get the right mix.

5.  Take a handful and watch it ooze out of your hand.  It flows like a slippery liquid.

6.  Squeeze the slime and it becomes a solid.

THIS EXPERIMENT CAN BE VERY MESSY, SO PLEASE TAKE CARE AND BE PREPARED!!!
