We hadn’t jumped all the way onto the slime train that’s overtaken Pinterest and schools the last year or so, but I’ve been wanting to try it out, especially once I learned that it’s possible to make MAGNETIC slime! It’s so easy, and now we’re hooked on this slime thing 100% and have more ideas to come!
- 1/2 C. Glue (I used clear Elmer’s, but white would work too)
- 1/4 C. Water
- 2 T. Iron Powder
- Silver Glitter
- 1/2 C. Liquid Starch
- Rare Earth Magnets
- Combine the glue and water together, then add the iron powder.
- Stir for several minutes until iron powder is well combined .
- Add starch to glue/iron mixture, and stir until most starch is absorbed. This is when it starts turning to slime!
- Dump the slime out onto plastic cling wrap and close up.
- Knead the slime for several minutes until the texture is dry.
The slime is done, you can now test various magnets to see what happens! Rare earth magnets are the best bet; regular refrigerator magnets aren’t strong enough. Be very careful with these stronger magnets; they can pinch small fingers, and keep them away from kids who might put them in their mouths.
