Pumpkin Slime

If you aren’t a fan of pumpkin seeds and generally throw the insides of a pumpkin away, stop! Use the insides to make this slime that is sure to be gross and fun in time for the spooky holiday.  Carving pumpkins is a yearly family activity so it was neat to extend that activity with other fun using supplies we had on hand.

Supplies

  • Pumpkin
  • 2 bottles of clear Elmer’s glue
  • Liquid starch
  • Knife (to cut the top of the pumpkin)
  • Gloves (optional)

Instructions

Carve out the top of the pumpkin. Using the stem, remove the top. Scoop out all the inside guts and place in a bowl. This is a great time to discuss the different textures you may be feeling.
