Project Notes:

–  All types of Elmer’s® glue work with this recipe; however, we used one 6 fl. oz. bottle of red glitter glue and one 4 fl. oz. bottle of white glue to make Pumpkin Slime as shown.

–  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.
First, find your favorite glue slime recipe. For Pumpkin Slime, add color according to your recipe’s instructions.


This slime has two separate slimes that you’ll make, then mix together: red glitter slime and bright orange slime. To make red glitter slime, use one 6 fl. oz. bottle of classic red glitter glue. To make the bright orange slime, use one 4 fl. oz. bottle of white glue. To get the color shown, add Copper and Golden Yellow food coloring, according to your recipe’s instructions.


TIP: 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.

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’re mostly blended.
Flatten out your slime on a piece of wax (or palette) paper and sprinkle on white pom poms and the 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’re evenly distributed throughout the slime.
To make your slime extra stringy, cut two or three 4″-6″ pieces of bright orange yarn, and fold those into the slime as well.
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.
If you intend to keep your slime for more than a few hours, be sure to store it in an airtight, sealable container (or re-sealable plastic bag).
