Who knew slime could be so profitable! That’s what the Grade 5 and 6 students at Nesbitt daycare discovered this past February when they held a lunchtime fundraiser for the “We Scare Hunger Campaign” by selling homemade slime!
One Wednesday afternoon, the Grades 5 and 6 students in the Nesbitt daycare WE Club, went to their daycare classroom and worked on creating slime! The children enjoyed working together mixing shaving cream, glue and borax, as well as food colouring. This special combination allows students to stretch, expand and create slime creatures or whatever their imagination can come up with–similar to play-doh, but slimier!
During the lunch break, Grade 5 and 6 students sold the slime in containers for a dollar each to their fellow classmates. The school children were all excited and looked forward to buying all different colours of slime. To see the look on the younger children’s faces was an amazing experience, they were so happy.
All proceeds for the slime, including extra donations, helped raise enough money to purchase 13 goats for a village in Haiti. Congratulations to the Nesbitt daycare WE Club for a job well done. Thanks to the help of the entire school, the money was raised for an incredible cause.
