Slime Making Kit: What does it teach?
The science to making slime is to find a way to hook the long chains of slippery polymer molecules together while the PVA is still wet. That’s the job of the Slime Activator, which is really called sodium tetraborate. You can purchase a box of the chemical at the store in the laundry soap section. It’s called Borax. The job of Borax is to link together the long chains of PVA molecules, and it works like a charm. Try making a new batch of Slime using your finger to stir the Slime Art liquid with the Slime Activator solution, and you’ll feel the molecules hooking together right between your fingers. Cool!

Think of your slime like microscopic spaghetti – long chains of slippery, slimy molecules called polymers. The Activator Solution links together long polymer chains to form the world’s best slime, so you can have endless amounts of fun with our DIY slime kit. Keep your slime in a zipper-lock bag for safe storage, and make sure to keep it off any carpet, wood surface or anywhere else you’re worried about damaging with slime. Most importantly, have fun exploring the world of polymers and colors with this slime making kit.
