Here’s how to make a slime that is taste safe and completely borax free! We tried something a little different to our usual slime recipes and made metamucil slime! I purchased a generic brand tub of Metamucil Fiber powder to make a neat Metamucil flubber that has an interesting but not too messy consistency. Perfect for Halloween science and of course, Vampire Slime!

VAMPIRE BLOOD’S METAMUCIL SLIME

Make it taste safe and completely borax free! We tried something a little different and made metamucil slime! Usually we make one of our simple Homemade Slime recipes, but we know that sometimes you need an alternative slime recipe. I purchased a generic brand tub of Metamucil Fiber supplement powder to make a neat flubber like slime that has an interesting but not too messy consistency. Perfect for Halloween science and of course, Vampire Slime!

HOW TO MAKE SLIME WITH FIBER

We dressed up our Metamucil slime with a set of Mr. Potato Head’s vampire teeth! You could also find those fake waxy vampire teeth that you can put in your mouth or simple plastic ones!

I have wanted to make Metamucil slime or fiber slime, but after a couple failed tries, I gave up and shelved my container of generic fiber powder. I knew this Metamucil slime would be an awesome Halloween theme though, so we tried again and made this slime that looks like spooky vampire’s blood!

The science is simple. The active ingredient which is the psyllium husk and water, thicken when heated. The water is absorbed and you have a flubber like blob substance which is your new slime!

METAMUCIL SLIME RECIPE

Please note: This slime is taste safe but should not be considered edible and should not be presented to kids as an edible slime.

SUPPLIES:

  • 3 teaspoons Metamucil fiber powder {the main ingredient needs to be psyllium husk}
  • 3 cups water
  • 1 cup measure and 1 tsp measure
  • Food coloring (optional)

HOW TO MAKE METAMUCIL SLIME

STEP 1. Add the Metamucil and water to a saucepan and mix together

STEP 2. Add a few drops of red food coloring to make the slime look like blood. Otherwise your Metamucil slime will have an orange hue.

Cooking Metamucil Slime

STEP 3. Place on the stove top and bring to a boil. Let boil for 3-5 minutes and then remove from heat and cool for a minute.

Use a spoon to check for consistency. It’s in that cooling time when you really see how the slime consistency forms. It usually takes about 3 rounds of this.

If you find at the 3rd round it still seems loose, set it to the side for a few extra minutes. As it cools it thickens. If you go to far you will burn it {I learned that!}. Stay by your stove as it can boil over {Learned that too}!

STEP 4. When you are finished cooking your Metamucil slime, let it cool on a plate. Once cooled, store in an air tight container at room temperature for a few weeks or pop in the fridge for longer.

Now, if you have added red food coloring, fingers will be tinged red for a bit. However, I found that the more we played with it, the less red our fingers became.

The consistency of Metamucil slime is much different than our traditional slime play. It’s looser and thinner, but still does not leave hands with a messy feeling. It does not break apart. It feels cool and jiggly in your hands and has a fun wiggly movement!

We decide on a Vampire’s Blood Slime theme since it isn’t as thick as a typical slime.
