Rainbow Slime Kit for Kids
Make Colorful Wiggly Worms While You Explore Polymer Science!
Amazing fluorescent colors won’t stain your hands
This is slime like you’ve never seen before. No glue… no Borax… no messy mixing… just amazing! Just mix-up the Activator Solution and squirt your favorite String Slime color into the liquid. The instant the two liquids touch, you get solid String Slime.
Remove the strings from the bowl and you’re ready to play. Snap the string in half to reveal the gooey center. Just dip the ends into the Activator Solution to seal it back up.
Explore the science of building polymers by cross-linking long chains of molecules. The process of making Rainbow String Slime is faster and easier than the classic slime recipe and it happens the very second the two liquids mix. Truly amazing!
What age is this activity best suited?
This activity is great for all ages. Both String Slime liquid and the Activator Solution is safe to use as directed with adult supervision. Use String Slime as an introduction to chemical changes for young children, while older children will learn about polymer science through the process of cross-linking long chains of molecules together.
Even Grownups Play With Polymers
Polymers, which are long carbon chains of repeating subunits, have hundreds of practical applications in the real world. Chemists who work in research labs love to play with them to get them to do all kinds of useful things for humanity. We see polymers in electronics, in coatings and adhesives, in the automotive industry, and even in medical devices. That’s why it’s a wonderful idea to let children learn about polymers early in their education, and with Rainbow String Slime from Steve Spangler Science, learning about polymers can be fun. Once the youngsters get past their initial excitement over the appearance of neon-colored strings that form in the activator solution as soon as they squirt in the slime, they can do the activities in the Activity Guide that’s included in order to learn more about how this wonderful rainbow string art actually works. Then, who knows? Maybe they’ll want to keep going even when they attend college and beyond.
