Slime Science for Kids
Read on to see how to make the very best beach slime recipe, but first, learn a little bit about the science behind the slime.
Slime is made when boron mixes with the polymer chains in the glue, creating strong, but flexible bonds between the molecules.
There are so many fun tweaks you can make to a basic slime recipe, like my kid’s favorite, best fluffy slime!
Since this slime does contain borax, if you have a sensitivity to it, you may want to try to learn how to make slime with baking soda slime instead.
How to Make Your Slime Beach a Success
If you don’t want to waste a lot of ingredients, try mixing up a small batch first to make sure you won’t have to tweak it before you make the larger version.
We always stock up on gallon sizes of glue and the large laundry starch just in case something goes wrong (but it almost always goes smoothly).
Follow these directions and you’ll have the best beach slime ever!
