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.

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.

We had such a blast playing with this DIY green glow in the dark slime in the bathroom. That’s the darkest room of the house. It’s also one of the easiest to clean if things get messy. (You’re welcome.)

On the last (or fourth) Monday of each month, a group of bloggers participate in a #MovieMondayChallenge, hosted by C’mon Get Crafty! We decide on a topic, genre, or specific movie to use for inspiration and everyone gets free reign to create something wonderful!


This month’s challenge was. . . . MONSTER MOVIES! Everyone was allowed to choose their own favorite film so long as it was inspired by the challenge word.
