Don't Mess with Slimeman
Materials: 2 mixing bowls, water, spoon, corn starch, green food coloring (optional)
Make slime that's cooler than what you've seen on Nickelodeon. Here's how:
Pour 1 cup of corn starch into a mixing bowl.
In another bowl, add a few drops of food coloring to 1 cup of water. Stir.
Slowly pour the colored water into the bowl with corn starch.
Use your hands to mix it all up until it's slimey and gooey to your satisfaction.
Place a handful of slime in the palm of your hand. What happens? Next, roll it into a ball and squeeze. How does it feel?

A banana slug secretes slime from every part of its body. It can even produce a slime cord to lower itself from a higher place.
