Step 3 – Make Green Slime

For the green slime, make it just like you did above except you want to add 3-4 drops of green food coloring and 2-3 drops neon food coloring to the glue before you add the water and liquid starch.

You can add more or less food coloring depending on the color you want it to be. Just keep in mind the color will be a bit lighter after you add the liquid starch since it’s white in color.

Step 4 – Add the Green Yolk to the Slime Egg White

Once your slimes are made, add some of the white slime onto a plate or table and make it an egg shape. Then add a smaller amount of the green slime on top as the “yolk”. 

Now you have a real green egg! {Giggle}

  1. I did not sign up for this page. I don’t know how you got my email address. I can not find a way to unsubscribe. All in all this in an invasion of my privacy and is very frustrating. I will be reporting this as soon as I work out how!!

  2. Our state has attendance as one of the criteria we must meet. We encourage students to be in school, just like we encourage students to stay home when sick. I teach 5th grade and my class since the beginning of school has not spelled “ATTENDANCE “ with getting one letter for each day all students are there ALL day. I have a monthly attendance club and they get a reward if they stay in the club for the month, realizing one month might be tougher than another. Bottom line, attendance is important.

  3. Ironically our school district just instituted this policy recently and had a big family meeting to drill it home that it doesn’t matter the reason your child MUST attend class. It’s been interesting this flu season especially since our states department of human health just posted state guidelines requiring anyone diagnosed with the flu to remain out of school for 7 days from diagnosis. A call to the school and the answer was? Your child is required to attend school, any missed days will result in a report to the state and mandatory Saturday school. Of course I reported this to the states DHE and a few days later the district grudgingly posted the guidelines. But it’s worse then this since now there are parents that won’t take kids to the doctor because they don’t want them to be diagnosed, my wife and I have both personally witnessed parents saying this, because if they aren’t diagnosed they don’t have to stay out of school for 7 days. Children shouldn’t be punished because they are sick or injured, nor should parents fear that taking a child for a diagnosis will result in punishment. It really falls on the district and the use or misuse of district funds. I believe this is why this policy is in use in our district since they are spending district funds frivolously as if they are rolling in the dough and need every cent they can squeeze out of the state, and local tax payers. They have already had several projects shut down that would have cost far more then they should have. And just going to school board meetings to voice opinion doesn’t help either especially if like our board they have a predetermined agenda.
