Beth Harris, the long-time science educator, is back with another fun and easy experiment to do at home with the kids.

Harris, a Raleigh mom of two and also creator of Fort Kits for Kids and STEMPlay, shares this recipe for making Metamucil slime. In the video, she shows how it's done and explains a bit about the science behind it. You also can go to her website where Harris has an entire slime recipe book!

I've shared how to make Borax slime here on Go Ask Mom earlier. This version is safer for younger kids, who might get a bit in their mouths.
