We made Halloween Slime! Some people call it Gak, but since Halloween is coming up we thought Slime would be a more appropriate name! We also colored it orange by mixing red and yellow food coloring! Maybe next we'll make some Black Slime! Keep reading to find out the recipe for slime and all the other FUN C had with it!
Recipe for Slime:
(we got the recipe from Family Fun Magazine here)
Mix together 3/4 cup of warm water, 1 cup of white glue and few drops of food coloring (we used red and yellow) in one bowl. In another bowl, combine 1 1/3 cups of warm water and 4 teaspoons of Borax (this is usually in the laundry detergent section of the grocery store). Note: Borax should not be ingested and can cause skin reactions with some----so be careful---use your discretion! Pour the contents of the first bowl into the other bowl and let sit for 1 minute without stirring. Now you are ready to EXPLORE!
C enjoyed mixing it up!
C enjoyed just kneading it pushing into it!
She had FUN feeling it with her feet and stomping on it (making pancakes)!!! (her idea!)
C added her Water Beads and creatures to it! She played with this combination a long time! Be sure to check out our Water Bead Fun post here if you want to know more about these AMAZING sensory Gems!
Lastly, she tried out cutting the slime with scissors and that was a Big Hit too!
Wouldn't it be FUN to have a batch of water beads and slime out for kids to feel for a Halloween Party?
Have some Slimy Halloween Fun!!!
