Slime making is a favorite activity in my home! Just a few basic ingredients create a project that keeps my kids busy for hours. Since Halloween is around the corner, I decided to model my slime after one of my kids’ favorite monsters, Bob from the movie “Monsters Vs. Aliens”. This one eyed blob would make a fun party craft, or even a unique Halloween party favor.

- White school glue, on hand
- Tempera paint, on hand or $1
- Liquid starch – on hand or $1
- Plastic eyeballs, $1
Total: $1 and up
Step one: Pour 1/2 cup glue into a container.
Step two: Mix in blue paint. (I prefer to use washable paint instead of food coloring, to decrease the risk of stains!)
Step three: Pour 1/2 cup of liquid starch to the colored glue. Mix well. If it feels too sticky, add a little more starch. If you end up with too much starch you can just pour the excess off.
Step four: Add the eyeball to the slime blob.
This is a fun project to do with a large group, and it makes a great party favor.
You could make it any color you want, and even add glitter to it!
