Summer Science: Slime Take 3 and More Oobleck Fun

If most original science experiments end in failure, then we are right on track with our slime making.  Of course a key component, say something like a recipe, was missing from this go around so we went with what we got.

Start with Borax and glue - or so I thought.

Since that didn’t go as planned and since Colten was mowing the yard when we made Oobleck last time, he decided to make a small batch of his own.

We decided to try some other experiments on the Oobleck.

What happens when you apply bass to Oobleck?  (The music, not the fish.)

Can you bounce Oobleck?

So, we’re going to try this slime thing one more time.  I have an actual recipe this time, so I’m holding out hope that we will get it right finally!

PS – I GOT A JOB!!!  I start next Monday.  It is perfect, just where I wanted to be, doing what I wanted to be doing.  Thank you all for your continued prayers and support.  I’m so excited and relieved!!
