Pumpkin Slime

From MICHAELS

 

This Pumpkin Slime is just as ooey and gooey as taking out the seeds inside a real pumpkin…only so much more fun! Add bright orange yarn to the mix to make it extra stringy!

PROJECT NOTES

   –  Be careful when children are crafting with small wood shapes and pom poms, as the products do have a choke hazard warning on the label.

   –  Protect your work surface with wax (or palette) paper and wear an apron (or other protective garment) to protect clothing, as the food coloring may stain.

-Dip a craft stick into the food coloring container, then mix the color into the glue, stirring thoroughly until it’s completely blended. Always use a new, clean craft stick when dipping into your food coloring in order to avoid cross-contamination

 

This slime has TWO SEPARATE SLIMES that you’ll make, then mix together.

After these two slimes are made, directions follow for Pumpkin Slime.

ONCE BOTH SLIMES ARE MADE

1.Form each slime into a long strip and place one on top of the other on your non-stick surface. Now, fold and twist the slimes together until they are mostly blended.

2.Flatten out your slime on a piece of wax (or palette) paper and sprinkle on white pop pom sea date wood shapes (that look like small pumpkin seeds). Fold the slime’s edges in toward the center to blend the mix-ins into the slime. Continue until they are evenly distributed throughout the slime.

3.To make your slime extra stringy, cut two or three 4” to 6” pieces of bright orange yarn, and fold those into the slime, as well.

4.Use a black paint pen to add a jack o’lantern face to your treat bag. Store your slime in the treat bag to play with later, or give it away to a trick-or-treating friend.

NOTE: If you intend to keep your slime for more than a few hours, be sure to store it in an airtight, sealable container (or resealable plastic bag).
