Crafts with Slime: Halloween Slime

Halloween is one of our most loved vacations. We are sharing crafts with slime, and that gonna be so fun. We know that candy can be overwhelming for some kids to receive so today we share a non-candy Halloween treat idea with this Halloween slime.

You can make a big batch from one type or do them all! Anyway, kids will love to receive these lovely Halloween crafts.

Halloween Slime

We made pumpkin jars a few years ago and they made a big hit. That’s why we thought – why shouldn’t we make slimy pumpkin jars?

Such a fun idea to fill the color of the Mason Jar with clay! And if you’re not the best with the marker, you could stick to the ghost slime pot. We like it simple!

Now here are our 3 Halloween Slime jars that we will guide you through how to do.

First, our pumpkin slime jar – made with orange clay inside and black felt for facial features!

What you need

  • 6 oz Elmer glue – we used white (2 bottles) and glittery green and repeated the recipe 3 times. Note: we made it out of Elmer’s glue.
  • Orange food coloring for pumpkin slime jar. Note: food coloring can stain.
  • 1/2 teaspoon of Baking Soda
  • 1½ tablespoons of Contact lens solution. Note: your brand of contact lens solution must contain boric acid in the ingredient list.
  • Water – Add 2 tablespoons of water to your glue before adding baking soda if you want a stretch slime.
  • Googly Eyes
  • Black Felt
  • Glue Dots

Instructions (step by step)

Take a bowl to combine your slime ingredients.

Pour 6 ounces of Elmer’s glue into the bowl. Use white glue for the ghost and pumpkin slime.

Use your green glitter glue for your Frankenstein slime.

Blend in orange food coloring to make orange glue for your slimy pumpkin.

Add 1/2 teaspoon baking soda and stir until well combined. Also, add up to 1/4 cup of water to create more stretchy clay.

Now include your contact lens solution. Remember: Boric acid must be in your contact lens solution, otherwise your vase will not form. Begin with half of what the recipe calls and stir. Then gently add the rest.

If you find it still too sticky, you can add some more. Be careful not to add too much or that will make your slime hard.

Now mix until your slime forms and begins to harden. You can be surprised with how much you need to knead the slimy to make the slimy shape.

If it is not desired consistency continues to knead. If you think it is still too tacky, add a little more contact lens solution.

Now add your face features to your Mason jars! We used googly eyes for the ghost silt jar. We cut out a pumpkin face using black felt for pumpkin jars. And we used black felt and sticky eyes on Frankenstein jars.

Thanks for going through the end of this project. Well, It would be so fun I guess. Do have a share with your friends and family. Cheers!
