Magnetic Slime - Thick Putty with Metal and Small Strong Magnet
Curious Minds Busy Bags
This slime is so much fun because it is magnetic! The slime comes in a metal tin, and it is a thicker stretchy putty with metal dust in it. The slime also comes with a little magnet. Place the magnet over the putty and watch it slowly creep towards the magnet. Or, you can lay the magnet close to the putty, and watch as it crawls and engulfs the magnet. It is like living slime! The slime is a thick putty that never dries out so you can keep it out on your desk and play with it anytime. Tin is 3.5" x 1.25". Ages 14+.
- When I envisioned magnetic slime I thought it would move a lot faster than it does. The putty slowly creeps towards the magnet. Please note that if you pull the magnet away quickly it won't stay stuck, the trick is to slowly pull the magnet away.
- This activity is perfect for parents, occupational and physical therapists, early childhood educators, day care providers and anyone who wants to build the fine motor muscles in their little ones.
- My boys love this slime (and so do I) because it is stretchy and builds hand muscles which is perfect for occupational therapy.
