Step Up Your Kids’ Goo Game MAKE AMAZING MAGNETIC SLIME

If you’re a parent in 2018, you know how popular slime has become among the kiddos. NPR reports that the gooey stuff has become a “social media sensation” and even led to glue shortages in many areas across the country. But instead of making a traditional pile of neon goop with your child, why not upgrade it with magnetic capabilities? Make your own magnetic slime with just a few ingredients you can easily find around town.

to doubt that this preslime mixture can possibly turn into anything, but have faith and continue to mix. Eventually, it’ll take on that gooey slime-like texture. 3. Once the slime is a little squishy, remove it from the bowl and start mashing it with your hands. Knead and knead until the mixture is evenly distributed throughout. Don’t worry about the black juice remaining in the bowl — just mix it in as best you can. When that’s done, give your hands a good scrub. The black mess will leave a stain for a little over a day.

What you’ll need:

• Liquid starch

• Elmer’s glue (or any white glue)

• Iron oxide powder (can be found at home improvement stores — avoid breathing it in!)

4. Pat the slime down to dry off excess juice. That’s the stuff that makes a mess and blackens your hands, not the slime. Now it’s ready for action! Set the slime on the countertop and get out your magnet. Your kids will be amazed by the way the thick slime reaches for the magnet, almost like some alien creature. This is the perfect opportunity to explain how magnets work. Check out the “Magnetism” page on ExplainThatStuff.com. Or just squish the slime around and see what it can do! Though it may not be as colorful as the slime you usually see, it’s definitely more interesting. It’s the perfect simple activity for a playdate with your kids this May.

• Disposable bowls

• An extra-powerful neodymium magnet (check online retailers or hobby stores) 1. Start off by pouring 1/4 cup of liquid starch into a disposable bowl. Add 2 carefully-measured tablespoons of iron oxide, and stir

vigorously until fully mixed. 2. Mix in 1/4 cup of glue, and stir like crazy. You’re going

What Our Patients Are Saying............

My hygienist was gentle with me because she knew I was nervous. It had been a long time since I’d been to the dentist. They all made me feel comfy. –Anonymous They let you know your alternatives with cost. They are very honest and take time to explain what is happening. –Carolyn S After failing to make two previous appointments, I expected to be treated coldly, and that was okay. Not the case. From the moment I stepped through the door, the staff was friendly, courteous, and chatty. My dental tech, Kim, was very nice, but more than that, I felt she was excellent at her work. She never hurt me,

yet did her work thoroughly. She always told me what she was going to do so there were no surprises. I think talking to the patient is very important. Dr. Sperry was knowledgeable, congenial, and professional. I have found a new dental practice that I am very pleased with.

Thank you all. –Anonymous
