Who remembers the days of everyone having slime, I know I had it in three different colors. The Slime Lab is just the thing. Now there are awesome slime labs that kids can play with. While learning scientific principles like viscosity, elasticity, and wave theory, young scientists try their hands at using lab equipment inspired by the tools preferred by real scientists.
The experiments need basic household items, like vinegar, water, food coloring, borax, corn starch, baking soda, etc, most things we all have in our homes already. It’s recommended for ages 8 and above. Supervision for some of the experients are recommended.
It’s Alive Slime Lab is a fun concept, and it includes some useful lab equipment and an invaluable pamphlet with recipes, instructions and scientific explanations. My nephew had so much fun playing with this.
This kit shows the wide range of activities that you can do with slime. Through experimentation, a child learns about chemistry and physics. One of the great benefits of this kit is the so-called Slime-o-Nator, which is actually a mini-vortex mixer. He thought he was making something so cool, its funny how the little ones are in awe over things like this.
This slime toy works like the others in terms of the mixing, but it is also different than others, and I mean that in a good way. With this slime lab, the mixture is placed atop a motor that vibrates for greater effect. Kids can watch the colors and textures swirl around as the vibrations create some fun and very visual patterns. The instructions include 20 different recipes for slime and each can be made using items found in most kitchens.
Enjoyable for the adult who likes to experiment, as well. Hopefully an interest in further scientific study will be generated by this lab. The Slim-O-Nator porttion of the Lab requires 4 AA batteries.
