Slime has been taking over the internet for the past couple of months. Something so simple yet so satisfying has captivated thousands of people of all ages. We’ve all seen the slime videos that leave us so mesmerized. What is it about slime that captures us?  Senior Tina Dang said, “ I like that I can play with slime when I am  bored or need to get my stress out.” The attraction to slime also comes from the many ways it can be made unique; different scents, colors, and textures can be added. What if it could be made magnetic?

This simple recipe should walk you through each simple step and leave you with perfect magnetic slime. However, not all the items will be easy to find. To make the slime magnetic, iron oxide is required and I ended up having to buy it off of Amazon. Only about 2 tablespoons were needed for the slime, but I could only find large quantities of the iron oxide. This was a little aggravating, considering it was priced at $10, but making the slime was an enjoyable experience overall. In fact, Dang stated, “My favorite part was when we had to add the iron oxide because it changed the color really fast.” While making the slime, things got very messy. I would suggest wearing gloves while doing this experiment and laying down newspaper where the project will take place. Iron oxide is a very fine solution and adds an intense color that can leave your hands a very dark black.” Dang suggests to look up how to make the slime before your first attempt. Watching several videos and reading tutorials will avoid confusion in the long run and can help save time during the creation process. In the directions, it states to use a rare earth metal to see the slimes magnetic characteristics. The importance of this was discovered when we used a regular magnet to test it. It is crucial to use a strong earth metal. If you follow instructions carefully, the magnetic slime will come alive right in front of you. If you cannot find access to a strong metal, this slime will still relax you and help pass time, which is the ultimate goal.
