If you love slime and Halloween, then you are in luck because we are sharing our favorite Halloween slime ideas. I’ll share the absolute easiest way to make slime with just two ingredients, plus tons of ways to customize slime for fun Halloween ideas.
Slime and Halloween just make sense together—you can make it as fun or creepy as you want! It’s a great activity to get everyone in the festive mood.
Not only is it a lot of fun, it’d be a great idea for handing out to trick-or-treaters if you’re looking for a candy alternative.
Why would you want to make slime for Halloween?
This could be a fun seasonal activity for the classroom or something to do after school. You could also make Halloween slime as party favors for a Halloween party or a birthday that falls near the holiday.
Also, you could choose to give away slime as a trick-or-treat alternative to candy. For any of these gifting ideas you may want to purchase small, inexpensive containers that you can give away.
Decorating the containers is another fun way to add to your craft time and make a fun gift.

You can make homemade slime with just two ingredients: Cosmic Glue and Elmer’s Magical Liquid. You could also add food coloring if you are using white glue and want to make it colorful. Or, you can simply buy colored or glitter glue.

Love Halloween Crafts? Try These!
- 1 bowl for mixing and combining slime
- 1 bottle glue of choice (5 ounces) Cosmic or regular (I used Elmer's)
- 6 teaspoons activator I used Elmer's Magical Liquid
- Combine one 5-ounce bottle of cosmic glue with 6 teaspoons Magical Liquid.
- Stir to combine. If the slime is too sticky, add more magical liquid. Add a little at a time.
- Knead the slime to mix really well. It comes together really quickly, but if it isn't the right consistency after 30 minutes, you need to adjust the liquid ratio.
- Add glitter or other elements at the end by folding them into the slime.
