Pink Haired Momma's Snot

We got some gross happenings going on over here in Pink Haired Momma land! Sassy gal, Video Dude, Baby DIVA and I made home made SNOT this week. EWWWWWWWW!!! And no we didnt just blow in a tissue, we actually made it! It was really cool and fun though. As usual, the kiddos received a teaching lesson along with a fun project.

Picking their noses...

This project allowed me to express to them how snot, or mucus is made of sugars and proteins. They were able to see the components of snot replicated in very simple household kitchen items.

What you will need:

Boiling water
Karo syrup
unflavored gelatin
a glass jar
a fork
a spoon
optional: green food coloring to give the mucus effect

How to make you own SNOT:
Fill half a cup with boiling water.
Add three teaspoons of gelatin to the boiling water.
Let it soften before stirring with a fork.
Add a quarter of a cup of corn syrup.
Stir the mixture again with your fork and look at the long strands of gunk that have formed.
Add food coloring to desired intensity of color.
*may be placed in fridge to give the gelatinous snot effect. Yum Yum!
