Slime makes for school holiday fun at Bendigo Library

SLIME was the order of the day for children at Bendigo Library on Wednesday.

The fully booked session provided primary school aged children with opportunities to make two varieties of slime in colours of their choice.

Participants could either use clear glue or white glue as the base for their gooey concoction.

Shaving cream, bicarbonate soda, food colouring, glitter and a salt solution were among the other key ingredients.

Four-year-old Chloe Wicks and her mother Anthea Wicks; 11-year-old Tiffany Wagstaff, and 10-year-old Seth Skate were among those trying their hands at slime making.

The session formed part of the school holiday fun in Bendigo this week.

Police were the stars of the Emergency Services Craft Zone at Bendigo Marketplace on Wednesday.

Appearances from the City of Greater Bendigo organics and waste staff and SES members are planned for the remainder of the week at the Marketplace.
