After giving the Fall leaves slime a try, we started looking for more easy slime ideas. I’m still warming up to it, to be honest. But, I caught myself the other day.
I was cleaning up after my five year old, and a tiny piece of the slime can be pretty stress relieving. I’m not so sure about getting my hands in like she does, but you’ll never know!
How to Make Halloween Slime
I know my way around some crafts, that’s for sure. But others? Not so much. My daughter loves hands-on activities though and while I’m happy to find them and print them out for her? Sometimes I view this more as an opportunity for her to engage in some independent play.
However, my patience level and my oldest’s patience level aren’t quite as high when it comes to hands-on crafts.
Here’s what you need for the Halloween slime:
Supply List for Sensory Friendly Halloween Slime
- 1 bottle Elmer’s black glitter glue
- 1/4 cup warm water
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 1/2 tablespoon contact lens solution
- Halloween foil confetti
Instructions for Sensory Friendly Halloween Slime
Now that you have your ingredients together, here’s what you do next:
Empty the glue into a large bowl and then add 1/2 cup of warm water and stir to combine.
Add the baking soda and mix thoroughly. Add the contact lens solution and continue to stir.
Mix in your confetti at this point too:
Continue to stir until you have a small ball. Your slime will still be a little bit sticky at this point. But continue to knead, like you would a ball of dough, until your slime is to your liking in terms of consistency.
How to Use Your Halloween Sensory Slime for Sensory Play
Aside from just every day play, you can also do a “find the monster” game
To modify the game, you can also count the number of pumpkins, bats, skulls, etc.
Tip: store your slime in an airtight container in the refrigerator when not in use.
