Here’s what you’ll need:

1 1/2 cups water

Food colouring (optional)
Glitter (optional)

Mix the borax into 1 cup of water
In a bowl, combine 1/2 cup water, the glue, 2 or 3 drops of food colouring, and glitter. Stir well.

Add the borax mixture into your bowl and stir. You will see the goo start to harden right away. Mix with your hands and set aside for a couple of minutes to dry to a rubbery consistency. You can discard the remaining water in the bowl.

Your goo will last for up to two weeks if kept in a tightly sealed bag.

Vinegar and Baking Soda Experiment

The baking soda and vinegar experiment is a good science experiment for kids. It’s the classic baking soda and vinegar experiment, where you mix baking soda and vinegar, and they neutralize each other creating BUBBLES! We added some food coloring to the vinegar to make it a little more fun and we put a pan underneath to help keep the table clean for this experiment.
