Halloween slime is festive and fun sensory play! Could there be a more perfect holiday than Halloween to make ooey, gooey, SLIME?! I think not.
We’ve had quite a few trial and error moments with bowls full of slime over the years. We have finally figured out a wonderful recipe and we use it often (among a variety of other slime recipes)- one our favorites is SNOT slime! This recipe makes wonderfully stretchy, slimey goo your kids will love to play with!
The Perfect Halloween Slime Recipe
Let’s be honest, any slime recipe could work for Halloween because it’s SLIME! But add some orange food coloring and a solid pinch of halloween confetti, and I have to admit… it does make it feel extra special!
In my experience, contact solution and baking soda consistently make a better slime than borax-based recipes. Here’s what you’ll need to gather:
- Clear Glue (I prefer to buy it in big containers because squeezing it out of those little 5oz bottles drives me BONKERS)
- Orange Food Coloring (or red + yellow!)
- 2 TBS Baking Soda
- 1 TBS Contact Solution
- Halloween Themed Confetti
All of these supplies can also be found at the dollar store, so you can make a batch for $5 and still have most of the ingredients leftover to make another batch!
Start by pouring 5 oz of glue into a bowl. Add food coloring color of choice and stir. We chose orange to go with the Halloween theme!
We added the confetti at this point too, but doing it again, I think I might try to mix the bats in one the slime is formed just to see what happens!
We just picked up what was at the dollar store. If you can’t find Halloween specific confetti, using orange, black or white glitter (or confetti) would look cool too!
Next, add in 2 TBS of baking soda and stir.
Once that is completely mixed, add a tablespoon of contact solution and stir some more!
You should feel it turning into slime pretty quickly. Add a little more contact solution if it remains too sticky and keep kneading!
Once it forms a ball, take it out. It may be a tiny bit sticky still, but kneading it and stretching it will fix that!
Fun Uses For Halloween Slime
Hello, trick-or-treating! We hand out candy, but wouldn’t it be so fun to have a tray full of little containers of slime for kids to take home too?!
This easy slime recipe makes it simple to make a lot to give away or a little batch for just one gift. We’ve had great success giving homemade slime away as a birthday present!
- 1/2 cup clear glue
- 3-5 drops food coloring orange or red+yellow
- 2 TBSP baking soda
- 1 TBSP contact solution
- confetti or glitter
Mix glue and food coloring in a large bowl.
Add mix-ins now (glitter or confetti) or add with the contact solution later
Add baking soda and mix well.
Add contact solution and mix until slime thickens. Knead it!
You may need to add more contact solution and knead with your hands if you want it to be thicker. Do this 10 drops at a time.
