Goosebumps Gummy Bear Slime
Check out the directions in the picture below. If you need to see a larger version, just click it to open the full-size image, then download or print it out.
Haribo Gummy Bears make the perfect ingredient for safe, edible slime! We save the bowls that come with frozen dinners for things like this, but if you don’t have any on hand, I really love these inexpensive microwave safe bowls!
Science with Slappy
Watch Gummy Bears grow (and glow, if you use the right liquid!) overnight with this fun science experiment for kids of all ages! We are definitely giving it a try this weekend!
Aside from the Gummy Bears, chances are you have all of the supplies for this one! If you bought gummies for the slime, then you’re all set!
While you can use as many different types of liquid as you have on hand, I highly recommend grabbing a bottle of tonic water to see the cool glowing effect!
For those who homeschool or do cyber school, both of these activities count towards their overall educational hours!
