Over the past couple of weeks we have been learning about magnetism for school. Magnets are truly fascinating and there are many experiments that can be done using them. This is one of them.
To make magnetic slime you’ll need:
3 to 4 oz. Liquid Starch
1 bottle White School Glue
3 Tbl. Synthetic Iron Oxide (I got ours from Amazon)
We used gloves, masks and a plastic tablecloth when mixing this. It turns everything black, so be prepared to get messy.
Once we mixed the three ingredients, it became a very nice thick slime. We then used magnets from hard drives to play with the slime. It actually will move and dance with the magnet. The children really enjoyed this.
