Have you made slime before? This easy Halloween Spider Slime made from glue with glitter and Halloween confetti spiders is a huge hit with the kids. It’s simple to make using liquid starch. This is a sponsored post. This post contains affiliate links.
My kids and I love to get into the Halloween spirit as soon as August hits. We break out the Halloween clothing and the Halloween decorations and start Halloween crafting pretty early. It’s our absolute favorite holiday.
Ingredients to make Halloween Spider Slime
Here’s what you need. It takes just 5 ingredients. For the spiders, you can go with confetti spiders made from metallic paper or you can get tiny plastic spiders which are fun to make this slime with, too. For our pictures, we used the confetti slime.
- 2 (5 oz) bottles of clear school glue
- 10 oz water
- 8 oz liquid starch
- 1/4 cup glitter
- 1/4 cup Halloween spider confetti or tiny plastic spiders
How do you make Halloween Spider Slime with glue?
This slime is very easy to make, and it makes a big bucket full so there’s enough for 3-4 kids if you want to divide it up into Halloween party favors in little jars with a spooky Halloween label.
In a bowl pour out the entire contents of both bottles of glue.
Add the water to the glue.
Add the glitter and confetti spiders and stir it all up.
Slowly add about half the starch to the concoction and stir. If there is still some liquid, add about half of what is left of the starch and keep stirring.
When it looks like a big glob of goo (like the picture above), then stop adding liquid starch. If there’s still liquid in the bowl, then keep adding the starch a little bit at a time until it all forms a glob.
Once it’s too thick to stir, then start kneading the slime with your hands to work any excess water into it, so that it’s no longer sticky.
Now it’s time to play! Your kids will get hours of fun from this slime. Mine love to put it in all sorts of containers and stretch it and make balls with it. It’s really so much fun — even I like to play with it!
