How to Make 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 pumpkin 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.

Add 1 cup of liquid starch. Mix well with your hands. If mixture appears to stick to your hands, slowly add more liquid starch until you reach that slime consistency. It may take up to 15 minutes of mixing to reach the consistency.

If you plan to keep the slime, store in the fridge as it contains a food product.

This is a great activity for a sensory play inspired by Halloween. Kids can dissect the pumpkin, exploring the different parts and smells.
