The slime craze does not seem to be ending anytime soon so I have decided to embrace it fully. My kids ask almost weekly if we can make a new slime color, if we can get new glitter and other things to add into the slime. While slime is sticky and sometimes really messy, I also see it as a way to help teach kids how to measure, using their hands for enhanced motor skills, and honestly just overall fun.
We decided to get in the Halloween spirit for this one with a Halloween slime in orange and black. There are so many ways and things you can add to the slime to make it even more fun. And it could also be given away as an alternative Halloween treat idea. Win win. I have linked to some of the products I used in this recipe through Amazon(affiliate).
- 1 airtight container
- (2) 5 oz bottles of clear glue
- 1 cup water (divided into ½ cup portions)
- 1 tsp baking soda (divided into ½ tsp portions)
- 2 tbsp contact solution (divided into 1 tbsp portions)
- Acrylic paint – orange and black
- Orange sequins
- black sequins
- Fine orange glitter
- Fine black glitter
- Small bowl
(This makes a LOT of slime! You can make one batch of the clear slime and divide into 2 portions tinting each one with paint if you would like to make a smaller batch.)
- In a bowl, pour the entire 5 oz bottle of clear glue.
- Add in ½ cup of water.
- Add in ½ tsp baking soda and stir.
- Squirt in some orange acrylic paint until the shade of your liking forms. Stir well.
- Sprinkle in some orange sequins and glitter. Stir.
- Add 1 tbsp contact solution. It will instantly begin to form.
- It will be STICKY! Don’t panic! Mix the solution in the bowl until it starts to form.
- Knead the slime until it is no longer sticky.
- Set aside in a bowl.
- Repeat the process, except adding black paint and sequins instead of orange.
- When you are playing with them, the colors will begin to blend together creating beautiful swirls.
- Eventually the colors will fully blend together to create a perfect pumpkin orange color!
- Store in an airtight container.
Once it is all mixed and kneaded, you have some really cool Halloween slime that your kids can either play with separately or mix together. If the sequins are too rough, you could do the foam balls. They are much softer and squishy.
Like I said you could have your kids make this, keep some for themselves to play with, then get the smaller 1 oz size cups to pass out as Halloween treats that aren’t candy. Now to think of slime for the winter/Christmas holiday!!!
