How to make Pumpkin Slime in a Jar.

For the pumpkin slime jar, you'll also need:

  • 1 sheet black cardstock or construction paper
  • 1 sheet green cardstock or construction paper
  • 1 green chenille stem
  • 1 green 1-inch pom poms

STEP 2: Add water.

Once you've emptied the bottle of glue, fill it up with warm water, about ¼ of a cup. Shake to mix all the remaining glue from the bottle with the water. Remember to seal the lid well to avoid spilling!

STEP 4: Add the baking soda and the contact solution.

Get the baking soda and mix it with the glue by stirring the mixture thoroughly. Then, use the contact solution. Simply add it to the bowl and mix until your slime starts to take the shape of a ball.

STEP 5: Knead your slime!

You'll feel the slime is super sticky at first, but you just need to play with it and knead it and the slime will start taking shape and be less and less sticky.

Jack o' Lantern Jar - Instructions:

STEP 1: Cut out Jack o' Lantern features.

Take your black cardstock and cut out the eyes and smile for your jar.

STEP 2: Work on the lid.

Using a pencil, trace the outline of the lid on green paper and cut it out. Now, glue this to the top of the jar's lid. 

Take the green paper and cut a strip of it that is ½ inch by 9 inches. Use your glue and attach it to the rim of the lid.

STEP 3: Create the twisted chenille stems.

Now, it's time to work on the chenille stems. Take one, twist it around a pencil, and then remove it and bend it right in the centre. Glue the centre to the middle of the jar's lid and then add the pom-pom over the stem.

STEP 4: Add some final details.

Now, you just need to add some of the facial features to the jar and some hair to make it look extra cute. Once your jack o' lantern jar is complete, take the slime and put as much of it as it fits. Seal the lid, and your Halloween slime is complete.
