NEBG: Plant Slime (Ages 5-10)

March 26 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

Learn about the amazing adaptations of carnivorous plants and explore how these plants use sticky, slimy, and even smelly techniques to meet their needs for survival. Use these plants as inspiration as we mix up our own plant-inspired slime recipes. Practice measuring and following step by step instructions and get messy in this hands-on workshop. Each child participant will create one plant-inspired batch of slime complete with a snack perfect for a carnivorous plant and a second batch in a color and scent of their choosing. Our slime recipe uses non-toxic ingredients including liquid glue, baking soda, contact solution, food coloring, glitter, and essential oils.
Adult helpers are strongly encouraged for children under the age of 6.
Price includes admission to the garden and the cost of materials.
