This activity is perfect for kids to make some fun glitter slime monsters! You can even create a lot of monsters and use them to decorate your home this Halloween!
*PLEASE NOTE: CHILDREN SHOULD BE SUPERVISED AT ALL TIMES. AN ADULT SHOULD ALWAYS BE PRESENT*
You Will Need:
- Sodium Tetraborate 5% Solution (Borax)
- Clear liquid non-toxic glue
- Decorations for jars (cupcake liners, fake spiders, googly eyes)
Mix 1 tablespoon (15 millilitres) of water with 1/2 cup (120 millilitres) of glitter glue. (If you cannot find glitter glue, make your own by mixing in about 1 teaspoon of fine glitter into clear glue. You can also add some colour with a few drops of liquid food colouring).
Pour the Sodium Tetraborate 5% Solution (Borax) mixture into the glue mixture and stir everything together. The slime will start to come together and form almost instantly. At some point, you will be able to use your hands to squish the slime.
Take the slime out of the bowl and finish kneading it. Once the slime has come together into a ball, take it out of the bowl. (There will be some liquid leftover, this is fine).
TOP TIPS: DON’T LET THE SLIME SIT TOO LONG IN THE Sodium Tetraborate 5% Solution (Borax) MIXTURE AS IT WILL START TO TURN HARD.
TOP TIPS: IF THE SLIME IS TOO RUNNY, PUT IT BACK INTO THE BOWL WITH THE Sodium Tetraborate 5% Solution (Borax) MIXTURE AND WAIT UNTIL IT HARDENS AGAIN.
Your slime is ready to play with! This should be stored in a dry, cool place which is where you can use the monster jars!
To create your own monster jar, start by choosing the right size jar! See our variety of jars with different lids and sizes! – See more now. When you have your jars, start by using glue to stick the googly eyes onto the front of the jar. Glue some false spiders onto the jar or other fun decorations. Finish by putting the lid on and putting a Halloween themed cupcake liner on the lid to act as a hat! Alternatively just choose a jar with a black lid!
