Terror loves slime making. We’ve made quite a few now, some successful and some not so much. I found this recipe for a “taste safe” slime and figured it would be worth a try.
This simple slime only requires two ingredients (3 if you want to add color).
3/4 cup tapioca starch (it will probably be labeled flour in the store, I felt silly because I stopped several places looking for it before I realized this fact)
2 cup water
Optional food coloring of your choice, we used red to make vampire slime
Put the starch and water in a pot over medium heat and stir until thickens and becomes translucent. This takes somewhere around 5 minutes. Remove from heat, place in bowl to cool. I added the food coloring at this point. Let cool before your kids play with it. This is a sticky slime. It can be stored for a while in an air tight container in the fridge but we tossed it when we were done.
Thank you to A Little Pinch of Perfect, for the idea https://alittlepinchofperfect.com/halloween-sensory-play-recipes/
While the slime cooled the boys made a bat wreath.
They cut the base out of a cereal box, made rings of construction paper, and a bat for the center. If we did it again we would use hot glue instead of staples and tape.

Of course then it was time for slime.
Terror loved it, even if his hands looked like he had been disemboweling someone. Kear wasn’t as into it, too sticky. Kear just isn’t into slimes. I would say it was a pretty successful slime.
