Nico's 6 year old Birthday party. He got a Chemistry kit, an electricity kit and some plastic measuring cups and beakers. We had 12 kids around the table making Goop and Slime. Well, almost 12 - two of the 6 year old boys thought it was just too gross and couldn't stomach it. The next day, science continued
The girls were really into it. Messy Messy Messy. Slime - Water and Corn Starch. - add the food coloring to the water before mixing with corn starch.
Nico mixing up the goop - 1/2 cup of Elmers glue and 1/2 cup water mixed together with a couple of drops of food coloring. Then add a mixture of 1 tsp of borax and 1/2 cup water. Mix Mix Mix. and have a ball. On the right we were learning about the density of water and oil. They just won't stay mixed!

Let's do it again... Next time - what happens if we cover the food up???? I bet they will DECAY!!!!
|Day 3: Looks the same, getting pretty dry|
|Day 5: Really Dry and crunchy - maybe a litte bit darker brown|
|Day 3: More Brown spots, looks gross|
|Day 5: It Shrunk! and got yuckier|
|Day 5: It's also shrinking and getting really dry|
|Day 3: It's getting dried up.|
The First experiment. Nico wanted to experiment with food to see what would happen - hoping that they would DECAY - This was said in a very sinister voice. It's a basic concept. We would take pictures, and write about the process and put it on the Blog. Very exciting. This experiment was done dry - the food wasn't covered, so the moisture would evaporate.
