Slime Science and Slime Facts for Kids

Spring slime recipes are about more than just having fun with stretchy, slimy slime.  Slime is a wonderful way to help children foster a love of science and chemistry.

Slime is formed when a chemical reaction between materials in the glue and the boron in the laundry starch or borax. This reaction alters the chemical bond of the materials, combining them into long polymer chains. This process is similar to how most flexible plastics are made today.

We make spring versions of slime because it’s a fun way to combine science and sensory experiences with the most sensory season of all- spring!

Slime is also wonderful for kiddos who are sensory seeking, particularly for kids with SPD, autism, and ADHD.

If you’re new to slime, definitely read our tips on how to make the perfect slime recipe every time. And if you need more help, check out these slime troubleshooting tips. If you’re in a bit of a rush though, just remember that brands matter when making slime. 

We will not make slime unless we have Elmer’s glue on hand, Good food coloring (that’s a brand we love), and Sta-flo laundry starch (unless we’re making an unusual slime recipe, like taffy slime).

While there are other ways to make slime, like with Borax powder  and baking soda (we’ve never gotten contact lens slime to work), laundry starch slime is by far our favorite, and we will always recommend using it above any other recipe.
