I was attempting to create a Halloween slime, but I’m not very good at scary things, so in the end, I decided that a Monster Slime was about as scary as it was going to get. Apparently, it doesn’t look like a very scary monster at that because one of my daughters took to calling it the Mike Wazowski Slime!
So ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, I present to you, Mike Wazowski Monster Slime!
How to Make Monster Slime:
- 5 oz. bottle Elmer’s clear school glue
- ½ cup water
- ½ tsp baking soda
- 1 Tbsp. contact solution
- lime green acrylic paint – you could use another colour if you prefer
- green fine glitter
- googly eyes
- Pour the entire 5 oz. bottle of clear glue in a bowl.
- Add in ½ cup of water.
- Add in ½ tsp. of baking soda and stir.
- Squirt in some acrylic paint until you achieve the shade of your liking. Stir well.
- Sprinkle in some green glitter and stir.
- Add in lots of googly eyes. You can use a variety of sizes.
- Mix in 1 Tbsp. of contact solution. The slime will instantly begin to form.
- At this point, it will be sticky. Don’t worry. Just keep stirring the solution in the bowl until it starts to form.
- Knead the slime until it is no longer sticky.
- Store it in an airtight container when you’re not playing with it.
This monster slime is cute for using at Halloween parties or even giving as a party favour. You can change the colour by changing the colour of the paint used. Using coloured googly eyes will also change the look of it, so there are many possibilities.
Sensory and Learning Opportunities:
Mixing and kneading this slime while making the recipe provides proprioceptive sensory feedback.
The tactile, visual, and proprioceptive sensory systems are all engaged while playing with this Monster Slime. Pulling, pressing, stretching, squeezing, and shaping the slime also helps develop coordination and motor skills.
