Who doesn’t love slime?! The slime you’ll create in this experiment is a result of glue being what’s called a liquid polymer. The tiny molecules within the glue are in strands, like a chain. Once liquid starch is added, the polymer glue’s strands hold together, giving it that slimy texture. The starch links all the polymer strands together, keeping it together!

Once you’ve finished creating your slime, continue to play with it to make it more stretchy and easier to hold. Store your slime creation in a bag in a cool, dry place when you are not playing with it.
