Slime time! 

What you need:

  • bowl
  • pack of cornflour
  • ½ cup of water
  • large spoon
  • green food colouring

What to do:

  1. Place the cornflour in the bowl
  2. Use the large spoon to stir the cornflour while adding the half water in, a little at a time.
  3. Add a few drops of food colouring to the mixture.
  4. Keep adding small amounts of water and stirring until a thick slime forms.
  5. Now make a fist and punch the surface of the slime - the slime will feel like a solid, keep playing with it to make it runnier.

Spooky fake blood! 

What you’ll need:

  • plain flour
  • water
  • red food colouring
  • 1 teaspoon of instant coffee

What to do:

  1. Boil the water on the stove
  2. Sieve in the flour, making sure you get all of the lumps out.
  3. Once you have the flour mixed nicely into the water it should look nice and thick.
  4. Add the red food colouring.
  5. It is important that when you add the coffee to make sure the mixture is hot, otherwise it wont dissolves, but up until adding the coffee can be done in a ordinary mixing jug or pan.
