This slime recipe is a part of another awesome Movie Monday challenge. We’re getting into the swing of Halloween with classic monster movies this month. I decided to go with a classic this year: the 1958 film The Blob!

I know that the Blob is red, but frankly, red doesn’t glow nearly as well. Also, red slime resembles blood a little too much for me to share it with the kiddos. This green version is a more family-friendly spooky.

 

 

Materials for Slime Next to Bowl with Spoon in It

Ingredients

 

Glue in Bowl next to Elmers Slime Solution

Step 1

Empty your entire container of liquid glue into a small glass bowl.

Step 2

Next, open your mica powder and pour it onto the glue.

Step 3

Mix your mica powder and glue until they are well combined.

Step 4

Then pour in the recommended amount of Elmer’s Slime Solution into the glue and powder mix according to the package instructions.

Step 5

Lastly, stir your mixture until the slime solution is thoroughly incorporated into the glue and powder. It should be slime at this point.

Glow in the Dark Slime Play Idea

We have some fun mini erasers coming in the mail to mix into our slime. I chose this set so that we would have animals, vehicles, and signs to represent that the Blob eats everything it touches.

Set them in a small plastic bin or on the table. Then drag your slime across seeing how many you can pick up with it. It’s a fun new way to play with slime that should definitely create an interesting texture when we’re through.

I don’t know what it is about pumpkins that is so dang appealing but they are beautiful. You can customize them in so many ways to fit any Autumn decor style.

These easy painted pumpkin coasters keep it traditional with an orange base and adorable black jack-o-lantern faces.

According to my kids they also make a great game, too. They promptly picked them up and started tossing them like Frisbees across the living room. There you go: fun Halloween décor and a boredom buster all in one!

 

Pumpkin Coasters Materials

 

Step 1

First, remove the coasters from their packaging. If you keep the cellophane in tact you can use it to protect your work surface from stray paint drops.

Note:

 

Step 2

Next, paint a nose on each coaster.

 

Step 3

Then, paint 2 eyes on the coaster. Be careful not to bump the painted nose with your hand. You don’t want to smear the paint.

 

Step 4

Next, paint a fun mouth on your coaster.

 

Step 5

Lastly, paint any eyebrows or lashes you want to include.

 

Step 6

Repeat steps 2 through 5 for your remaining 3 coasters. Set the coasters aside to finish drying.

Tip:

 

Step 7

Once the paint on your coasters is dry, use green paint to add leaves and vines to each of your pumpkins.

Step 8

Again, allow your paint to dry completely.

Step 9 (Optional)

If you want the coasters to stay put on the coffee table, add four dots of paint on the opposite side of each one. This will make the coasters grip the table during use and prevent spills.

Make It a Game

If you want to up the fun, you can turn this into a formal game of coaster throwing. These coasters are super light and work great for tossing. Make this awesome Jack-o-Lantern Treat Jar and set it up somewhere in the room or outside. Divide into teams and take turns trying to toss the coasters into the treat jar (sans the lid).
