Of course, you can guarantee we are going to dress our slimes up with cool themes for Halloween, and here’s the latest. We’ve created a wizard or witch’s brew recipe perfect for everyone to enjoy. You will learn how to make fluffy slime easily with our simple instructions and awesome recipe!


Awesome and easy to make homemade fluffy Halloween slime recipe with a wizard or witch theme! We have tons of Halloween slime ideas and Halloween slime DIY recipes perfect for kids to enjoy all season long. Halloween slime for kids is also perfect for science activities and sensory play activities.Pin


Whip up a batch of our fluffy slime, and give it a witch or wizard theme! You choose the colors whether you want purple or green or orange! Add some spiders and whip it up in a cauldron for awesome Halloween themed fluffy slime. Look for the recipe and supplies below.



We always like to include a bit of homemade slime science around here, and that’s perfect for exploring chemistry with a Halloween theme. Slime is an excellent chemistry demonstration and kids love it too! Mixtures, substances, polymers, cross-linking, states of matter, elasticity, and viscosity are just a few of the science concepts that can be explored with homemade slime!

What’s the science behind the slime? The borate ions in the slime activators  (sodium borate, borax powder, or boric acid) mix with the PVA (polyvinyl-acetate) glue and form this cool stretchy substance. This is called cross-linking!

The glue is a polymer and is made up of long, repeating, and identical strands or molecules. These molecules flow past one another keeping the glue in a liquid state. Until…

When you add the borate ions to the mixture, it starts to connect these long strands together. They begin to tangle and mix until the substance is less like the liquid you started with and thicker and rubberier like slime! Slime is a polymer.

Picture the difference between wet spaghetti and leftover spaghetti the next day. As the slime forms, the tangled molecule strands are much like the clump of spaghetti!

Is slime a liquid or solid? We call it a Non-newtonian fluid because it’s a little bit of both!

Witch Fluffy Halloween Slime Recipe Idea for KidsPin



Kids will have a blast creating their own witches brew recipe for Halloween! Mix and match colors, add fake eyeballs, vampires teeth, or more creepy crawlies.


  • 1/2 cup of Elmer’s White Glue
  • 3 Cups of Foam Shaving Cream
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • Food Coloring
  • 1 tbsp of saline solution


STEP 1: Add 3 cups of foam shaving cream to a bowl.

STEP 2: Add food coloring as desired.

STEP 3: Mix in a 1/2 cup of Elmer’s white glue (washable school glue).

STEP 3: Stir in 1/2 tsp baking soda

STEP 4: Mix in 1 tbsp saline solution and stir until slime forms and pulls away from sides of the bowl. This is exactly how much you will need with the Target Sensitive Eyes brand!

We always recommend kneading your fluffy slime well after mixing. Kneading the slime really helps to improve it’s consistency.

If your slime still feels too sticky, you may need a few more drops of saline solution. As I mentioned above, start by squirting a few drops of the solution onto your hands and kneading your slime longer. You can always add but you can’t take away. Saline solution is preferred over contact solution.

STEP 5: Add some fun Halloween mix-ins.


Our slime recipes are so easy to change up with different themes for holidays, seasons, favorite characters, or special occasions. Saline solution is always super stretchy and makes for great sensory play and science with the kids!



Slime lasts quite a while! I get a lot of questions regarding how I store my slime. We use reusable containers in either plastic or glass. Make sure to keep your slime clean and it will last for several weeks.

Note: Fluffy slime with shaving cream will loose some of its fluff due to the foam shaving losing air over time. However, it’s still tons of fun afterwards.

If you want to send kids home with a bit of slime from a camp, party, or classroom project, I would suggest packages of reusable containers from the dollar store or grocery store or even Amazon
