Your children will love making this ooey gooey Do It Yourself Halloween Monster Slime! The secret to countless fun slime time is to use a safe, nontoxic, and washable glue. To make the slime sparkle, I used black glitter. Adult supervision is required at all times for this craft project as it’s not edible since it’s made with glue and Borax and has small parts which can be a choking hazard. It is not suitable for children under the age of 3 years old. Thoroughly wash your hands before and after making and playing with the slime.
DIY Halloween Monster Slime
You will only need a few simple supplies you can purchase at the grocery and dollar stores.
- White school glue
- Green food coloring
- Googly eyes
- Black glitter
- Two large bowls
1. In one bowl, mix together ¾ of a teaspoon of Borax with 1 ⅓ cups hot water until the Borax is dissolved.
2. In a second large bowl, combine 2 cups of white school glue with 1 ½ cups of hot water and 8-10 drops of green food colouring.
3. Combine the contents of both bowls into one, and mix thoroughly. First, use a spoon to combine, and eventually switch to using your hands. Keep kneading and squeezing the mixture until all of the liquid has been incorporated into the slime, and you come out with the right consistency.
4. Add in black glitter and the googly eyes. You can mix to combine these, but they will naturally combine as you play with the slime. Disposable gloves are optional at this point if you want to keep the glitter from sticking to your hands initially. Once the glitter is incorporated into the slime, it will not stick to your hands.
