Slime is one of my kids favorite play materials. It is easy to make and SO FUN! Whenever we whip up a new batch of slime or silly putty Rosie and Jewel play and play, and there is always lots of laughing along the way. Today, we created a new slime recipe perfect for Fall.
Recipe for Play
For all the best kids activities
This slime is oOey and goOey, and it smells just like pumpkin pie. Rosie and Jewel loved squishing and creating with this amazing play material. Are you ready to make your own?
Silly Pumpkin Putty Recipe
- 3/4 teaspoons of borax
- 1 1/3 cups very warm water
Combine the water and borax in small bowl
In a second bowl combine
- 2 cups of white school glue
- 1 1/2 cups very warm water
- 5-10 drops of orange food coloring or watercolors
- 1-2 tsp of pumpkin pie spice
Mix the contents of both bowls well, and then combine both bowls
As the ingredients of both bowls are mixed the pumpkin putty will begin to form
Once all the ingredients are well enough mixed you will want to remove the slime substance from the bowl and finish working it by hand. This whole process is really fun for the kids
Continue to work the ingredients with your hands until you have an amazing SILLY pumpkin putty. You will have residual watery ingredients left in the bowl. This is normal and can be thrown away.
This pumpkin putty is so FUN and smells just like pumpkin pie! Kids can stretch it and pull it and use it in all sorts of fun ways! My girls loved making oozing pumpkin faces & pretend treats. It is a blast for kids and is sure to produce lots of giggles!
Tips & Storage: Store your slime in a zip-seal bag or air-tight container between play times, and it will stay good for several months. Borax can be found in the laundry aisle of most stores or online here. If you are concerned about the slime staining hands I recommend using watercolors over food coloring ,but both will work great for coloring the slime.
