Science Saturday – Magnetic Slime, Yes really!

Science Saturday

I was thinking today about doing a few more science craft posts, there are loads of science experiements that you can do from the comfort of your home using ingredients from the back of your cupboard. So for the first post of Science Saturday we have Magnetic slime, Yes really!

I Came across this while trying to look for a slime recipe. It looks so fun and it would be great to use as a magic tricks to impress your kids as well.

How to Make Magnetic Slime

Did you know that it’s possible to make slime magnetic?  I didn’t either until recently when I found a post on Pinterest from Instructables about making magnetic silly putty.  I really recommend this slime recipe rather than silly putty – more on that in a minute.  But first, check out what magnetic slime can do!

Magnetic Slime

Magnetic slime is really fun to play with on its own.  It stretches and squishes.  If you hold it up, it oozes down to the floor in a long strand!  Adding the element of magnet play makes it even more awesome.  This is a great project to put on your to-do list for a rainy day, spring break, or summer!  It would also make a great group activity for a science club or scouting group.
