Monsters Inc Slime
Do your kids love playing with slime? Slime is such a fun hands on sensory activity that helps kids learn to explore a variety of textures and states of being. This is the ultimate science activity for toddlers, preschoolers, kindergartners, grade 1 and grade 2 students! If you’ve been a reader for any amount of time, you know we are BIG Disney fans in our house; most activities end up with a Disney twist to make learning and playing extra fun! This Monsters Inc Slime recipe is such a zany new slime activity that is the perfect family activity to go along with a family movie night!
Here are even more fun disney printables and themed activities!
To make this easy slime recipe, simply mix in a small bowl 1 cup of hot water with scant teaspoon of borax until dissolved – fight the urge to add more borax, less is more for a good runny consistency!
In a separate small bowl, mix 1 cup hot water and food coloring (Willton or neon food coloring both work great) with 2 cups liquid school glue until thoroughly mixed (FYI – Modge Podge does NOT work!)
Finally, to make your disney slime recipe, mix contents of both bowls together for a couple minutes using a fork. Okay, you can use your fingers -I know you want to!

Other than the fun purple color which reminded us of Sully (or you could use neon green for a Mike Wazowski color), the next part that makes it a monster slime recipe is the many, many silly eyes! We added google eyes to our slime.
Remember in the movie where the orange blob monster was walking to the factory and his body slipped through the grate leaving only his month & eyes? That was our inspiration! So you could make it orange too … but we wanted to color it after the lovable “kitty”.

My eight-year-old went nuts! He just loved playing with the fun slime and when we added in all the silly eyes he laughed hysterically. We just couldn’t get enough of playing with the texture and experiment with how it oozed, without holding it’s shape.
Slime Activity for Kids
My 2 year old enjoyed squishing & pounding the goo. She added eyeballs to make monsters. This was not only great sensory exploration, but also great for her motor skills to strengthen her hands! She was happily entertained for 60 minutes!
Borax Slime Recipe
My 5 years old was equally enamored with the play recipe! She was thoroughly fascinated with how our slime recipe moved and oozed. She created monsters and then giggled as they flattened before her. She played for over 60 minutes and has been begging to play with more slime every day the last couple weeks!
So whether you are enjoying some Monsters Inc Inspired fun or adding it as a Halloween sensory activity this slime recipes is sure to be a HUGE hit!
