Let’s have a Spooky Halloween Slime Party! The Halloween Store at Oriental Trading has lots of fun Halloween craft supplies and decorations for your slime making party. It’s also where I found black cauldrons in all sizes. I used mini cauldrons to hold all the different add-ins for the kids to put in their slime.
Here’s the rundown of what we added to our homemade glitter slime to make it super spooky!
Halloween Slime Add-in Ideas:
- Colorful Pom Poms
- Itty Bitty Pom Poms
- Halloween Color Pony Beads Assortment
- Scary Spiders
- Spooky Googly Eyes
I covered the table with a plain white cloth topped with the Deluxe Creepy Cloth. This tattered and torn black tapestry was an easy way to make our party table look creepy. Each child got a serving of silver glitter slime and could pick out whatever add-ins they wanted from the Creation Cauldrons.

Easy Slime Recipe For Glitter Slime
The ingredient amounts listed below is enough for one person to have a serving of slime! This easy slime recipe can be doubled, tripled or quadrupled to create a larger batch of slime.
- 1/2 tsp Fine Glitter in desired color (I used Silver)
- 1/4 cup Clear Elmer’s Washable School Glue
- 1/2 tsp Baking Soda
- 1/2 tsp Buffered Contact Lens Solution (also called Buffered Saline Solution)
1. Add clear glue, baking soda and glitter to a large bowl and stir to mix. Note: I used fine silver glitter. If you use a larger glitter, you will probably need to add more 1-2 tsp more glitter.
2. Add 1/2 tsp contact lens solution and stir well for about 30 seconds. The slime should begin to thicken up. Add another 1/2 tsp contact lens solution and continue to stir. The slime should start becoming stretchier. Pick up the slime and begin kneading it with your hands. If the slime feels too sticky, add another 1-2 drops of contact lens solution and continue to work the slime with your hands. It will take several minutes of kneading to get the slime to the right consistency. See helpful hint below.
Helpful hint: Add 1-2 drops of contact lens solution as you work the slime in your hands as needed to get your slime to a stretchy consistency. Do not add too much solution to the slime. If you do, your slime will turn rubbery and will not stretch very far.
Once your slime is nice and stretchy without being too sticky, it is ready to play. The slime is also ready for any add-ins you may want to put into it. Pom poms and pony beads are always fun add-in ideas to make sensory slime.
When you are finished playing with your slime, store it in an airtight container or zipped plastic baggie so it does not make a mess and dry out.
