We love Halloween activities and Halloween books, so we’re combining the two to bring you Halloween Read & Play! Our activity, Halloween slime, works well with lots of Halloween books – pretty much anywhere you find a cauldron or some goo! Our play was inspired by Goodnight Goon by Michael Rex, a fun parody of the classic Good Night Moon.
- 1/2 cup white washable school glue
- 4 tablespoons Liquid Starch
- 1 tsp Washable Liquid Watercolors, if desired (we used green)
- Optional: Googly eyes
Shake the liquid starch before pouring it. Then mix the glue and liquid starch together. It takes a few minutes for it to really come together. We usually start with a spoon and then end up mixing it with our hands.
After it’s all mixed, I put out the goggly eyes and a cauldron we had and the kids mixed the eyes and played with the goo in the cauldron.
We are big fan of Michael Rex’s – we also loved his Brooms Are For Flying (check out our activity!)
