Sparkly Turkey Feathers Slime Science Fun

Need a last minute sensory-filled science activity for Thanksgiving? Or a fun farm themed preschool science project? Either way, this sparkly turkey feathers slime is perfect.

I wanted to make a turkey feathers slime to go with the book 10 Fat Turkeys, and this worked out perfectly! Enjoy!!

Simple Supplies:

* just under 1 teaspoon borax
* 1/4 cup warm water
* 1 bottle Elmer's pink glitter glue
* 6 tablespoons warm water
* 3-6 colored craft "turkey" feathers.

Easy How To:

1- Mix the borax and 1/4 cup warm water and set it aside.

2- Cut the craft feathers into 1/2 - 1 inch pieces.

3- Mix the glitter glue, 6 tablespoons warm water, and cut feathers.

4- Add the borax water to the other mixture and stir them together. Knead the new slime for a minute or two until it is not sticky anymore.

I love this part of the slime-making process, when everything is just starting to come together:

5- Play with your slime!

I have a great explanation of the science behind slimes and how they work here!
