Thank you Elmer’s for sponsoring this post. All opinions expressed are my own.
Not too long ago we posted our Galaxy Slime which was our first slime recipe, we have since made so many other variations including this one we’re sharing today. We decided to test out some fluffy slime recipes and came up with the perfect mixture for fall….Fluffy Pumpkin Slime! This may be our favorite slime recipe yet! In this recipe I added in some pumpkin scented oil which is optional, but if you decided to use any scents make sure to get unscented shaving cream. For storage we made our own DIY Jack-0-Lantern mason jars using construction paper and glue to store our slimes in. These would be perfect to make for favors for your child’s Halloween classroom parties or just for fun! If you’d like to find even more slime inspiration visit Elmers.com/slime.
Making slime with Elmer’s glue is the most kid-friendly and fun project to make at home! If you want to learn how to make fluffy slime too, see below! We have simple step by step instructions and tips for you.
Fluffy Pumpkin Slime Recipe For Kids
SUPPLIES NEEDED FOR FLUFFY PUMPKIN SLIME:
- 1/2 Cup Elmer’s White Glue
- Unscented Shaving Cream
- Orange Food Coloring
- Mason Jar
- Black Construction Paper
- Saline Solution
- Arm & Hammer Baking Soda
- Pumpkin Scented Oil optional
*Your results will vary if you substitute ingredients, and in some cases, slime might not form at all. Of special importance is the use of Elmer’s White Glue for quality, stretchy slime!
How to Make Homemade Fluffy Pumpkin Slime:
1.Add 1/2 cup of Elmer’s white school glue and 4 cups of shaving cream to a bowl. Mix well and then add in a some drops of your orange food coloring. Stir to mix in the color. Optional: You can add in a few drops of pumpkin scented oil after you mix in the food coloring.
2. Next stir in 1/4 tsp of Arm & Hammer Baking Soda. Then add contact solution about 1 Tablespoon at a time and mix.
3. Keep adding a little more contact solution and mixing until your slime begins forming into a ball-like form as you mix. You’ll notice this is when it starts to turn into slime and becomes less sticky. It will begin coming off the sides of your container and sticking together.
If your slime is still sticky add some more saline solution by starting small and adding a little as you go and continue to knead it. The slime will take on a fluffy marshmallowy consistency that is so addicting to play with!
When you’re finished you’ll want to store your slime in an air tight container. Or have the kids create their own jack-o-lantern jars by cutting out the faces from black construction paper and using some Elmer’s glue to glue their faces to the mason jars. This can be a super fun family activity, and perfect for a Halloween Party!
