Make Witch Slime

4. Make Witch Slime

Science is spooky!

What You’ll Need:

  • ½ cup of Elmer's white glue
  • 3 cups of foam shaving cream
  • ½ teaspoon of baking soda
  • Food coloring
  • 1 tablespoon of saline solution for contact lenses
  • Mixing bowl

 

How to Make Slime:

Check out our video on the Flipp Instagram to learn how to make Witch Slime!

  1. Add shaving cream into the bowl.
  2. Add food coloring as desired - pick the scariest colors you can think of!
  3. Mix in the glue.
  4. Stir in the baking soda.
  5. Mix in the saline solution and stir until slime forms. If your slime feels too sticky you might want to add a bit more.

 

*Pro tip: Try adding some of the saline solution in your hands and then kneading the slime. You can always add more but you can never take away. Kneading the slime also helps make it fluffy.

Make things extra creepy by adding eyeballs and spiders to the mix.

How to Play:

  1. Decorate each plastic cup with a ghost face.
