Occasionally, students share drawings inspired by the show. Here is one of a girl getting covered in slime! If you would like to submit a photo of your drawing to be published here, you can ask a parent to help you send one. Be sure to do your very best . . . a lot of people might see it!
The number one question kids ask at the end of each show is what’s in the slime! There are many, many different recipes for making slime. The one I use, I call “theatrical slime” because it is somewhat different from the types used in science experiments. It is completely non-toxic and non-staining, and it is even safe to eat (though I wouldn’t recommend it). Perfect for sliming your friends!
6 quarts of water
1 box of corn starch
green food coloring
Pour water into a large pot. Stir in corn starch, breaking up any clumps. Add 5-6 drops of food coloring, or more if you like. Bring to a boil (with parent supervision). Reduce to medium-low heat and let simmer for 20-30 minutes, or until slime begins to thicken. Rinse the pot before the slime dries so it will be easier to clean. LET IT COOL THOROUGHLY before use. When I need slime in a hurry, I add ice at the end. Makes one big bucketful, or enough to slime yourself and a friend.
