Kitchen Science - Conflour Slime
Roughly the same quantity of water to cornflour, 1/2 cup,1 cup, if you have several children you may want to use the whole box (200g) just depends how much you want to make. With the flour in a bowl or container, slowly add the water bit by bit and gently mix together by hand. The flour initially goes hard on contact with the water but keep slowly working it through. Add more water or flour to get the right consistency - when your gentle with it, it should be liquid slime, scrape your fingers through it quickly and it should go solid. You can add colouring but be careful, too much will stain hands. This stuff keeps my kids entertained for ages, they are amazed by how it goes from liquid to solid. I don't know if its called cornstarch or cornflour in Australia, but I do know you can get it in the supermarket, its called maiszetmeel here in The Netherlands. I only ever make it when the weather is good so we can take it outside as the kids go crazy with it. Easy to clean up with just water, super cheap, wonderful hands on fun.
