When we think of Thanksgiving and recipes, I’m pretty sure you aren’t thinking about Thanksgiving slime recipes! Well that’s our job around here, to think of cool new seasonal slime recipes for you to try with the kids! This is the first year we have decided to try out a few turkey themed ideas before the Christmas rush sets in. What do you know, we had a blast coming up with these ideas. Homemade slime really can be for any time of the year.
THIS SEASON MAKE THANKSGIVING SLIME RECIPES WITH THE KIDS!
EASY THANKSGIVING SCIENCE AND SENSORY PLAY WITH SLIME
Fall doesn’t end with a Halloween! I think a lot of people forget about the awesome month of November and rush on to Christmas. This year we wanted to make sure that we acknowledged Thanksgiving and the rest of fall with super cool Thanksgiving slime recipes.
From fluffy slime to real pumpkin slime to taste safe slime, you will love how easy our basic slime recipes are to make. Once you learn the basics of slime making, there’s a world of possibilities when it comes to themes for holidays and seasons.
Yes, in case you are wondering, we have tons of Christmas themed slimes already waiting for you here including videos which we are slowly adding to all our great slime recipes.
BEST THANKSGIVING SLIME RECIPES KIDS LOVE!
Below you will find the links to all our Thanksgiving slime recipes. I have also included a taste safe cranberry slime recipe from a friend of mine that I am sure you will love if you have kids who like to “sample” everything. Our regular slime is NOT edible. The cranberry slime or the marshmallow slime is a much better option.
Make sure to check out a couple of our slime making videos to see just how easy and quick it is to make our slime! If you continue to scroll down, I will share a bit of information on the science behind the slime as well as a few fun links with handy slime resources.
FAVORITE THANKSGIVING SLIME RECIPES FOR KIDS!
We love fluffy slime for it’s unique texture making it not only science but super sensory play for kids who love a very tactile experience! We dressed up a slime storage container like a turkey. You can get a little crafty with this Thanksgiving slime recipe.
Sometimes, all a basic slime recipe needs to be transformed into a holiday slime recipe is some fun color, glitter, and themed confetti! Here we have a totally turkey slime filled with turkey confetti!
Similar to our turkey confetti slime above, we have a gorgeous fall leaves slime recipe. We love making several batches of different color slime and combining them. Take inspiration from the colors around you when you are making slime!
Whoa! This is one of our coolest Thanksgiving slime recipes in my opinion because you actually make your slime inside a real pumpkin using real pumpkin guts as part of the recipe. Kids always find this cool!
Our classic fluffy slime recipe gone orange for pumpkins! Think of harvest themed colors and make your own harvest pumpkin slime. Once you know how to make our basic fluffy slime recipe, you can dress it up in so many ways.
Think marshmallow and sweet potato casserole with this taste safe marshmallow slime recipe! If you have a kid who loves to try everything that is put in front of them, you may want to choose to make a taste safe slime instead.
Remember, our regular slimes above are NOT to be sampled.
Grab a bag of cranberries and try a fun, homemade taste safe slime recipe using cranberries! I am looking forward to checking out this recipe from a friend of mine this season too. What else can you do with a bag of cranberries for science and sensory play, click here to see.
THANKSGIVING SCIENCE / SENSORY PLAY RECIPES AND IDEAS
The next few recipes and play ideas are perfect for both Thanksgiving science and Thanksgiving sensory play but are not true slimes like the above recipes. However, they are definitely worth including as alternative Thanksgiving slime recipes to try!
Oobleck is a classic Non-Newtonian fluids science activity that doubles as sensory play. The best part of it all is that you have the ingredients for this recipe in your kitchen! Super simple 2-3 ingredient activity that is both very educational and fun!
This fall themed bubbling slime uses an unique kitchen ingredient to make a gooey, slimey consistency that is perfect for both science and sensory play.
