Monster Slime for Halloween

Monster slime! Halloween is coming up and you’re looking for kids’ activities that help your little one learn, explore, develop and best of all – have fun. And, that’s exactly why I love making the ooey gooey slimy stuff so very much.

Kids' science

(This post contains affiliate links. Please see my disclosure statement for more information).

I’m all about slime-making activities. In the past, we’ve made underwater, solar system, feather and disco versions. One of my favorite things about this art-science activity (other than it combines art and science) is that my teenager still actually enjoys it! Even though my teen still thinks it’s cool (he might not ever admit it to his friends), this is a creative way for young children to build critical-thinking skills, explore science concepts and create.

So, you’re starting to think, “Eww! Slime? Isn’t that awfully messy for the kids to make?” Um, not really. This recipe is surprisingly simple, and impressively not messy. I’m not saying it’s completely clean. Come on, that wouldn’t be any fun at all, right? But, it’s not something that’s going to flow all over your family room. Okay, it’s completely possible that those itty bitty shreds of glitter will manage to embed themselves into every crease and crevice in your home. Does that really matter in the grand scale of things? Let’s just say this – don’t mix your slime up in the middle of your white living room rug, on your favorite dining room linen or anywhere that you’ll freak out if your kids get a few sparkles on.

Before starting, ask your child what she thinks will happen (in other words – make a prediction) when she mixes up the ingredients. As you go through the creation process, encourage your child to make observations (basically, she’ll tell you what she sees as it happens). When she’s all dine making the Halloween monster slime, sit back and let her play. One note: Let’s not give your very young child total freedom on this one. It is NOT taste safe. That means it should not go in, on or anywhere near your child’s mouth (nor should it go in your mouth, her brother’s or the cat’s). Always supervise your child while creating and playing with this monster-themed goo.

Here’s What You’ll Need:

·        Fine black glitter

·        Purple glitter

·        Water

·        Liquid starch

·        Clear Elmer’s glue (do not use the white school glue, it will give the black glitter a gray look)

·        Googley eyes

Here’s What to Do:

1. Mix equal parts of the glue and water. I like to use ½ cup of each. You can use more or less, depending on how much you want to make.

2. Add the liquid starch. Mix in the same amount that used for both the water and glue. I used ½ cup, because I also used ½ cup for each of the other ingredients. Now the slime is getting – well, slimy!

3. Sprinkle the black glitter in. Keep pouring it in, and mixing it, until the slime is completely colored with it. Okay, so you can use a spoon or your child can sue her hands. I find that the hand-mixing option is the easiest – and most fun.
