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.
- 5 oz. Bottle of Clear Liquid Glue
- Elmer’s Slime Solution
- .35 oz. Green Glow in the Dark Mica Powder (Mine came from this set)
Empty your entire container of liquid glue into a small glass bowl.
Next, open your mica powder and pour it onto the glue.
Mix your mica powder and glue until they are well combined.
Then pour in the recommended amount of Elmer’s Slime Solution into the glue and powder mix according to the package instructions.
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.)

I’m a nerdy, crafty mom of three adorable little kids. I love writing and creating, but in my non-existent free time I also love karaoke, taking my kids to the zoo, and reading. I got my degree in Science (no idea how that happened) but I took every English class I could get my hands on because, yeah, I’m that girl.
