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. The title of this article is inaccurate: it should say “ It’s the State’s fault…” It is our state government’s fault these truancy laws are in place. Your schools are trying their best to follow a law. They have to show that they tried to follow the law or they face consequences. They also have to show that they are treating everyone the same, so parents can’t sue them for discrimination. Why is Suzie able to miss 17 days of school and my Johnny can’t. Our schools live under a microscope, If they twitch, someone is there to rip them apart. Yes, we need to hold them accountable, but in many cases, there is a reason why our schools have the rules they do. If your child is sick, then they need to stay home. If your child is sick a lot, talk with your school, in most cases they are more than willing to work with you. You may have to jump through some hoops, but it is for your and your schools protection.

  2. To the “teacher” above….ummm maybe you should reread your post. If you want anyone to take your argument seriously then maybe it should, I don’t know, make sense??? I sure hope you aren’t an English teacher!!

    On the subject of the article…I have a 4 year old in preschool. It is a preschool connected with the public school system where we live. I can’t win for losing with them. My husband is an over the road truck driver so he doesn’t see him often. He was home for a few days a few months back and the opportunity arose for my 4 year old to be able to take a day trip with him in “the big truck.” We kept him out of school that day because, for me, it was more important for him to get to spend that quality time with his dad instead of going to school that day. So he had one unexcused absence, just one. Since then he’s had to have surgery, had strep, and had the flu. They get 10 absences only if even one of them is unexcused. So since we decided to let him spend a day with his dad while he’s in PRESCHOOL, we are running the risk of him losing his spot. All the other absences were excused with doctors notes. When I questioned this I was told that it is the policy of the county schools, and this year we just run the risk of losing his spot. Next year, once he starts Kindergarten, if a similar situation arises we could face legal troubles since it’s against the law not to send your kid to school if they aren’t enrolled in home school. What the crap??? So, I totally see where the writer is coming from.

  3. This might be one of the most ridiculous this game I’ve ever seen read or posted on Facebook. As a teacher I could argue so many sides of this. Stop and think about what you wrote, I mean really??! Schools have policies for a reason. If the principal wouldnt accept it then you might should have spoken with the school nurse to alert sure you understand the policy. Then speak with so watch the central office. Second, unfortunately if that is the policy then as a student and parent at that school who has probably signed a handbook agreeing that you both understood the policies. When your child has a job as an adult she will have to follow their policies whether she likes them or not or she won’t work there long. As for the ‘student in a chair issue’ it doesn’t matter if they are absent or not, if they are enrolled to go there then that isn’t a valid argument. Schools don’t get money that way. And as teacher with a small child I’d rather my family not be sick. So please stay at home. That’s why you have Dr notes and parent notes. Just another blog trying to get attention by not telling the whole truth.

  4. i have chosen to send my daughter to private school and am not sure how you can think that public school is the way to teach children about the real world. At school she has made blankets for the homeless, gone to homes for the elderly to volunteer, made meals for children in third world countries to send to them, and so many more quality learning experiences that would never be taught if she was in public school. While diversity is important it is very narrow minded to assume just because my child is being sent to a Christian school doesn’t mean there isn’t any diversity. It means I have chosen a school where my daughter can enjoy gym class everyday and art twice a week as well as music twice a week. I have chosen this and while I know it is not everyone’s choice. I one is less of a parent because they decide to keep their children home ir spend their hard earned money to send them to a private school.

  5. I totally agree with article. For the person who said truancy officers are only for extreme cases, no they’re not. I’ve been threaten with truancy charges over a sick kid all because I kissed a couple of sick notes. I’m fed up with the schools around me. My boyfriend deals with the same shit and he’s in Tennessee.

  6. We’ve been through this nightmare for years! Threats of prosecution when my daughter who has JRA and fibromyalgia (diagnosed at age 4) was in so much pain she could not stand, much less spend the day at school. The doctors’ notes were never good enough for them. They kept demanding more proof. And then there were the threats when during my single mom years, I couldn’t afford a doctor visit for every tummy flu or severe cold, so I had to take my children to school to avoid their wrath. Never mind that they then spent the day in the nurse’s office because vomiting in class is a non-no but I couldn’t leave work to pick them up until the regular after school time. It was and is a nightmare. Sick kids belong at home, and parents are the best ones to decide.

  7. lol public school isnt the “real world” , Its a bubble of the same kids in the same classes for YEARS, until you change schools.
    My homeschool kids are actually out in the REAL world. Meeting new people, learning new things, mastering their academics and moving on without having to wait for “no kids get left behind” . They do things during the day that public schoolers can’t since they are locked in a classroom 8 hours a day and then hours of homework after school.
    Best not to write articles and mention things you clearly know nothing about.

  8. My childexperences more real world being homeschooled than she ever did in public school. She gets to help voluneer at an association that keep our local training (from all the world) Air Force here. So she has met people from different countries just from that. She has learned how banking works and PS does not teach that. I could go on but you know got to learn about how the real world works.

  9. When we give the public schools the job of raising our kids this is what happens.

    Parents need to parent and get in front of school boards and remind them they are there to educate not make parental, dietary, or even medical decisions.
