The Slime Book

cover image DK, 2017. ISBN 9780241336618
If littlies love the tactile qualities of play-dough, then older kids love the same qualities of slime . . . and this new release from DK will teach them how to make the most of it!
While the basic recipe is a mix of cornflour and water, which in itself has quite magical properties, with the addition of a few other safe and easy-to-get ingredients, there are over 30 recipes for all sorts of varieties including popping slime, monster slime and even glow-in-the-dark slime! There is even a section for edible slime!
Each recipe is a double-page spread with clear photographs as part of the easy-to-follow instructions as well as safety tips, some science and suggestions for extending the experience. Perfect for teachers looking for something new for their science lessons but also a great suggestion for the Santa Sack as the long January days stretch out and kids are looking for something to do!
