Halloween Slime

Tickled Pink
Another Countdown to Halloween sensory play!  This was my first time making slime (shocking, I know) and it was so easy to do we will be making more of it again soon!  
Halloween Slime recipe

Slime Recipe:
1 cup white school glue (two bottles of Elmer's white school glue is approximately 1 cup)
3/4 cups warm water
A few drops of food coloring (we mixed red and blue to get purple)
1 tsp of glitter (optional.  But why not?!)
1.2 cup hot water
3/4 teaspoons Borax

Plastic spider rings (optional.  Found at Target in the Halloween section)

1. In a large bowl combine first 4 ingredients until smooth.
2. In a measuring cup dissolve Borax with hot water
3. Slowly add Borax mixture to glue mixture stirring to combine
4. Using your hands, knead and squeeze to transform the lumpy mixture into a slimy texture.  It comes together very fast, under 5 minutes.  Have fun!

Kinsey had a blast playing in this slime.  She lasted longer than I had anticipated actually! There is something to be said for sensory activities around here, they usually always last 5 times longer than planned for and encourage great imaginative play as well. 

Linking up with Amanda, Courtney, Elizabeth and Joni.

  1. I need to reference this, this winter we've been stuck in doors for too many days and need something new to do. Connor loves Flarp so I know he would enjoy this, too!

  2. What a fun idea to add the spiders! My Henry loves this stuff!

  3. This is so much easier to put together than I thought! I'm going to have to hunt down those items! I feel like this would be a great afternoon activity when we are desperate for something new to do while we count down the minutes until Scott gets home. :)

  4. OMG! That looks like a blast and pretty easy! Cam would love it. :)

  5. oh how fun, and I even have borax, so just need to get some glue and I can make this.Fun project!

  6. Fun! I wanna stick my hands right in there. Pinning this so we can make it later this week.

  7. Love it! I have slime on my to do list. I just need some borax. Where do you even get that? Target?

  8. How AWESOME! Need to get me some borax--- which I've never bought- do I get it in the detergent aisle at the supermarket?

  9. That stuff looks awesome! I'm curious where you find Borax as well.

  10. this looks so fun! I will definitely be adding this to my list of things to do next year! Hallie will probably be at a perfect age for it!

  11. How fun are you?! Will need to try this with Liam!

  12. I would have so much fun playing with this!!

  13. Oh you are such a fun cool mom. Playdough and slime. Your glitter optional comment made me lol too.

  14. How cool is this?! You are such a fun mom. I am going to have to make this with Mason. He would love it.
