This super fun dinosaur slime makes a perfect party favour. It’s going to be a favourite among kids. The neon green, the stretchy slime, and the dinosaurs all go together to create great sensory play.
Dinosaur Slime Recipe:
- ½ cup clear Elmer’s School Glue
- ½ cup of water
- ½ cup of liquid starch
- neon green food colouring paste
- plastic dinosaur figures
- Pour the water and clear Elmer’s glue into a mixing bowl. Combine well.
- Next, add in the food colouring and stir.
- Mix the water, glue and additives together well.
- Pour in your liquid starch and stir well for at least 30 seconds.
- Your slime mixture should start pulling away at the sides of your bowl when mixing. This is when you can start kneading it in your hands to see if it’s a texture you like. It should become a pliable slime ball.
- It’s now ready to pull out of your bowl and place on a clean, flat surface.
- Your slime is ready to play with. Add in your dinosaur figures.
- Enjoy playing with your slime!
The kids can help mix the glue, water and add ins. However, I recommend that an adult or older child handle the liquid starch stage of the recipe.
This makes a sticky slime, but it stretches well. If you want it to be less sticky, you can add in more of the liquid starch. The more starch you add, the less sticky it becomes. It will also become more rigid though, and more likely to break than to stretch. Always supervise young children when playing with slime or with any sensory play activity. Do not allow kids to eat slime. Although it is a fun science experiment, it should be handled with care and with adult supervision.
Dinosaur Themed Slime Party Favours:
This slime makes an adorable party favour. If you’re having a Dinosaur Birthday Party, you can either make these up ahead to include in the treat bags or you can make them with the kids at the party. Each child can take the one they make home with them.
Read about how to make slime with a large group by setting up slime stations here.
Use small jars with lids such as baby food jars. Fill the jars with a plastic dinosaur toy and slime. As an extra special touch, you can attach a plastic dinosaur to the lid with hot glue. Allow the glue to dry before screwing on the lid. If you’d like, you can also personalize the favours by writing each child’s name on the jar in permanent marker or by decorating the jar with dinosaur stickers that the child chooses.
