Alpha science classroom is beginning, we know that kids love to make slime, and very are interested in glow in the dark science experiments. This week we tackled this slime making a challenge to bring you a cool glowing slime recipe the kids will love. We used our super easy basic saline solution recipe and added a glow powder for some super glowing slime that doesn’t even need a black light. Making homemade slime is an awesome activity for kids.
The base for this glowing slime made by Alpha science classroom uses one of our most basic slime recipes, just three ingredients which are the saline solution, baking soda, and clear glue.
Now if you don’t want to use a saline solution, you can absolutely test out one of our other basic recipes using liquid starch or borax powder.
Alpha science toys show that “how to make” slime recipes will show you how to master slime in 5 minutes! Alpha science toys have spent years tinkering with our 4 favorite basic slime recipes to make sure kids can make the BEST slime every time!
Alpha science classroom: Slime Safety & Precautions
By making this slime, Adults agree to our site terms which you can read here.
Adults should dispose of any chemicals and products. Adults should help children make luminous slimes together. Please read and follow the labels of the products used. If you swallow the solution by mistake, seek medical attention immediately. Make the glow in the dark slime, Please Always read and follow the labels of products used. If contact lens solution is accidentally ingested, seek medical attention immediately.
This project is not suitable for children under 4.
Slime should not be placed in the mouth. After playing with the slime, you should thoroughly wash your hands.
Alpha science classroom: Glow in the Dark Slime recipe
Clear Washable PVA School Glue
Saline Solution (must contain sodium borate and boric acid as ingredients)
Glow Powder (You can find it in the paint shop)
Plus, Bowl/Spoon/Measuring Cups and Spoons
Alpha science classroom：Glow in the dark slime instructions
Step 1: Add 1/2 cup of clear washable PVA school glue to a bowl.Mix glue with 1/2 cup of water.
Step 2: Stir in 1/2 tsp of baking soda (adds firmness to the slime)
Step 3: Add 1/2 tablespoon of glow powder and mix well.
Step 4：Next add 1 tablespoon of saline solution (slime activator)
Step 5：Stir slime well until it pulls away easily from sides and bottom of the bowl!
TIP: Alpha science classroom reminder：Once you have thoroughly mixed slime with a spoon, sprinkle a few drops of saline solution on your hands. Now you can easily knead your glowing slime either in the bowl or out of the bowl for a few minutes. It will be very stretchy!
The Science Behind Why Things Glow in the Dark
For something to glow in the dark, it requires chemicals that store energy when exposed to light. These substances are called phosphors which radiate light after being “energized” or exposed to light. Once you expose them to light, they slowly release this energy in small amounts of light which causes the objects to glow in the dark.
If stored in an airtight container or bag ，the slime will last at least a week. We have found it usually will last longer. Just don’t let it sit out when not in use. We prefer to store our slime in a Ziploc bag since it is easy to press out all of the air from the bag.
Alpha science classroom today's making glow in the dark slime production activity is completed. Today science experiments for kids activities are based on training children’s hands-on ability and logical thinking, allowing children to understand simple chemical reactions in the process of making slime toys, giving children visual and sensory double stimulation, Children feel the power and fun of science. Parents must carry out such science experiments for kids with their children so that children can fully develop their abilities and become the smartest scientists in the future.
Alpha science toys have many interesting science experiments for kids, as well as glow in the dark toy sets. Parents can choose suitable science experiments for kids toys according to the children's different ages to help them learn scientific knowledge happily!
