Science Fun

Today in the Science Area, the children were asking about experiments and thinking about what would happen if they mix different substances. They talked about what kinds of things they could create.

They decided that they would like to make some slime. They researched that they would need to make this.

They needed:

PVA Glue
Contact Lens Solution
Shaving Foam
Food Colouring

First the poured some glue into a bowl.

Its all gloopy!

They added some shaving foam, then the food colouring. They decided to used blue and yellow.

I like blue.

They gave their concoction a good mix then added the contact lens solution. The mixture became very sticky.

Oh, it’s lovely and soft. It smells so nice.

They enjoyed mixing it with their hands. Encouraging the children to use their hands promote a sensory experience.
