Magnetic slime is the same as normal glue, baking soda and saline slime, except you add iron oxide powder. Though the slime only reacts to neodymium magnets, the program mixes different sciences to interest young patrons. Patrons should be at least six in age. Please stir the iron oxide powder in before adding the saline solution; this allows the powder to be absorbed and less ends up on your hands and table.
