My daughter is obsessed with slime! Since the moment we made our first batch, she was hooked! So it is no surprise that since Halloween is quickly approaching in October, she would want to make a Halloween Slime! This is such a quick slime recipe for toddler, preschool, pre-k, kindergarten, and first grade students.
There are a ton of different ways to make slime and some require multiple ingredients. Granted the ingredients may last for many rounds of slime making but I wanted something that was simple and inexpensive. GUESS WHAT?? I found it! I found an easy slime recipe that doesn’t break the bank, but allows her to have as much slime fun as she wants, even for every holiday! This Halloween Slime is such a fun sensory activity for toddlers, preschoolers, kindergartners, and grade 1 students to try for fun Halloween activities!
So how did we make this glorious Halloween Slime?
- Baking Soda
- Contact Solution
- Extras (Optional)
We’ve tried this recipe with white glue, clear glue, glow in the dark glue…it does not discriminate! No matter what type of glue you use it will work out great!
Slime Recipe for Halloween
For a basic slime, here is what we did:
- Add glue to a bowl. I prefer using throw away bowls so that we don’t have to clean excess slime out of all of my bowls, but that is totally up to you.
- Add in 2 TBS of baking soda. Mix well.
- If you are adding any extras, do that at this point. Stir in.
(We’ll talk about extras in a little bit)
- Next squirt in contact solution. I did two big squirts. I know that isn’t exact science, but I don’t think slime is exact science.
- Mix this in. You should start seeing the mixture turn into a ball. Like mixing flour into bread dough or cookie dough. Once it forms a ball, take it out of the bowl and mix with your hands. We knead it, stretch it, ball it up, spread it out..whatever you need to do to mix it up.
HINT: If it is too sticky, add a couple drops of contact solution. Not too much because it can quickly become too hard and not stretchy anymore. This is not what you want!
Another tip: Be Patient! Kneading, mixing and stretching can help make it unsticky. Adding too much extra contact solution will be detrimental to your slime!
Easy Slime Recipe
For this Halloween Slime we chose to use clear glue. You could add orange food coloring along with the glue, before the baking soda, but we decided to go with clear. Why? Because we had really fun Halloween confetti we found at the dollar store.
So to make this, we added the confetti along with the glue into the bowl. You can give it a quick stir and continue on with baking soda and other steps.
How cute is this? It’s a simple, not a Halloween in your face, slime, but it’s a fun slime!
