Making Science Fun. Slime is a fun way to bring science alive. This Frozen slime recipe is a great science experiment to show how polymers work.

Frozen Slime Recipe

As with most children in their generation, my kids LOVE the movie Frozen. Most days “Let it Go” is sung multiple times. “Reindeer are better than people” is said throughout the day. And the first DVD was worn out.

We are now watching the Frozen Sing-Along Edition at least once a week, if not more.

But at least they love eating carrots like Sven now!

As this is our first year homeschooling, I’m trying to make learning fun.

Some days I do better than others. While I do love a good glitter craft, to say I was super excited to find glitter glue at the store was an understatement. No glitter or food dye needed.

Frozen Glitter Slime would also make a fun take-home gift from a Frozen themed Birthday Party and definitely a fun science experiment you can do at home!

How to Make Glitter Glue Slime

1. Empty the contents of the glitter glue bottle into a glass container. This is a perfect job for kids to help with!

2. After the bottle is empty, fill the bottle with water and pour into the glass container with the glue.

3. Mix well.

4. After that, mix 1 teaspoon borax into 1/2 cup of warm water. (When measuring and mixing Borax, please use caution. This should be done by an adult.)

5. Mix well.

Notes

Frozen Slime Recipe Science Lesson

This is a lesson in polymers. Polymers are made out of long strands of molecules, similar to a beaded necklace. 

Glue contains an ingredient called polyvinyl acetate, which is a liquid polymer. Borax helps the polymer strands stick together, creating slime. Pretty awesome!

You can make bouncy balls, pull and stretch the slime, such a fun science experiment.

So much fun!

Playing with Frozen Slime -2

The kids have LOVED playing with the blue frozen slime recipe. Next time I’m going to try this with white glue and see if it makes a difference.

Have you made “Frozen” slime?

how do you store this & how long does this last? Would like to know how far in advance I can make it for a class.

It does dry out. I kept ours in the measuring cup at room temperature for about 3 days. I stuck it in the refrigerator to see what it would do. It's less like slime and more like a hard gel after about a week. Still fun though :). I'm going to try it with 1/2 a teaspoon of Borax and see if it stays like slime longer.

I do this activity with 60+ kids every year for a tour of a plastics company. Everyone loves it. I've not done it with glitter glue... It generally doesn't come in gallon jug. The white works fine. I've even added food coloring.
