Green Slime for Spring

Although the trial batch of cornstarch slime I concocted at home last night didn't turn out well, the recipe worked okay this morning in the class for high schoolers with autism.

They followed the recipe, scooping the dusty cornstarch out of the narrow box and adding warm water and a few drops of food coloring to the mixing bowl a little at a time.  The gloppy mixture kept changing from semi-solid to very watery as we stirred it, but the directions say that's how it's supposed to be.

We ended up making slime bags by dumping the goop into zip-lock baggies and sealing the end with duct tape.  It felt really good to mush the contents around through the bags while the mixture was still warm.
