Want a fun and unique non-treat Halloween gift idea for the kids this year? I recently shared some fun Halloween Playdough a couple of weeks ago as a non-sugared Halloween treat. In keeping with the non-treat theme, I thought Halloween slime would be another fun option. I know my kids love this stuff. And it is an easy Halloween craft to make and can be packaged in some creative ways. I saw something similar to these test tubes on Martha’s site and decided to make my own version.
I know many/most of you will not have test tubes lying around your home like I did…don’t ask…long story about how I used to teach high school science! I know you can buy some on Amazon for a few dollars and they are plastic. And I am trying to get better at making printables. I struggle with creativity in this area so I am trying to branch out a bit. I made some labels to go on the test tubes and you can download blank ones which you can then create your own names…or download the pre-named labels that I have pictured.
And…if a free printable weren’t enough…I made a video demonstrating how we made our slime. I know…I am getting a little crazy over here. My son was really excited about it so I thought…why not? So much easier seeing something then reading directions right? Especially if you are a creative type. But I must make a disclaimer…I have no idea what I am doing. I could not get the two videos together to make just one video, so you get part 1 and part 2. I am sure there is an easy way…but I was feeling challenged. And…I sound really boring, monotone and quiet in the video…so you have been warned! I will see if I can learn how to do this better.
How to Make Slime Part 1
How to Make Slime Part 2
Pretty easy right? So go and make some for your parties and Trick-or-Treaters. You can find Borax in the laundry aisle.
If you don’t want to make slime, you can fill them with playdough using the Homemade Playdough Recipe I shared earlier. Or go with the common and easy Halloween fall back…CANDY! Because honestly…can you ever have too much candy for Halloween?
Throw in your favorite sugared treat, slap on some labels and you have a really fun Halloween handout!
