The FANTASTIC FOUR is now out on Blu-Ray and DVD. Before they were superheroes, they were super scientists. In honor of that, we are using this break to ignite a spark of imagination, experimentation and discovery in my kids during the nap time.
The FANTASTIC FOUR make a triumphant return with MARVEL’s next generation of heroes — four young outsiders who teleport to an alternate universe, their physical forms altered in shocking ways. Their lives changed forever, Reed Richards (“MR. FANTASTIC”), Sue Storm (“INVISIBLE WOMAN”), Johnny Storm (“THE HUMAN TORCH”) and Ben Grimm (“THE THING”) must harness their incredible new powers and work together to save Earth from a former friend turned enemy, the infamous DR. DOOM.
Inspired by these scientists, we have Mr. Fantastic’s Stretchy Slime, The Human Torch’s Combustable Candles, The Invisible Woman’s Invisible Ink and The Thing’s Clobbering’ Candy. We can’t wait to try all of these out together!
We’ve made glow-in-the-dark galactic slime before, but the girls were drawn to that, so we went with that one first (after they covered themselves and notebooks full of “invisible ink.”
The slime kit came with the ingredients and directions to make 5 different kinds of slime.
Five different kinds of slime.
They went with the flip-flop slime (which we ended up having to add more cornstarch to).
The cornstarch one is fun because it feels very hard and solid-like, but it will actually flow through your fingers. Plus, it makes for soft skin.
Here are a couple other fun Fantastic Four science experiments you can do at home with things you likely have around your house.
