Carve Out Some Good Times with our Bubbling Halloween Slime!

“WE DO NOT OFFER RESPONSIBILITY FOR THIS EXPERIMENT. THIS EXPERIMENT SHOULD BE DONE WITH ADULT SUPERVISION AT ALL TIMES. MAKE SURE TO WASH YOUR WORK AREA, UTENSILS AND HANDS WHEN THIS ACTIVITY IS DONE. PLEASE NOTE – THIS EXPERIMENT IS FOR FUN ONLY*

You Will Need:

  • Sodium Hydrogen Carbonate
  • Acetic Acid 6%
  • Saline Solution
  • Glue
  • Food Colouring (We recommend Green or Orange to add a Halloween twist)
  • Small Cauldron or container
  • Small Cup
  • Baking Tray
  • Fake Creepy Crawlies (you can purchase these from your local craft store)

Step 1

Make sure the small cauldron or container is placed on the baking tray (this will keep any mess to a minimum). Begin by mixing 1/2 cup of glue and 2 tablespoons of Sodium Hydrogen Carbonate  in the cauldron or container. You should notice the more you stir the more it should thicken

Step 2

Once the glue starts to thicken, add the fake creepy crawlies

Step 3

Add the food colouring of your choice

Step 4

In another container, mix 1/4 cup of Acetic Acid 6% and 1 tablespoon of the saline solution

Step 5

Pour the Acetic Acid 6% Solution/Saline Solution into the glue mixture and start stirring!

You will start to notice the mixture begin to bubble and eventually will erupt everywhere! This is the reason for the tray!

Continue to stir until the eruption is complete. You will notice that it gets harder and harder to stir which means you have fully mixed the slime!

Step 6

Once fully mixed as much as you can, reach in and pull out your slime! It may be slightly messy at first but this is a super fun experiment! All you need to do is knead it a bit.

It should not be sticky on your hands either! But if after kneading your slime it still feels sticky, you can add a drop or two of saline to it and continue to knead. Don’t add too much or you will end up with rubbery slime!
