Fall Sensory Play
If you’ve been a reader of Ruffles and Rain Boots for any time, you know that I believe kids AND adults need a little sensory exploration in their lives. ;) We grew up getting our hands into things and feeling how they move – and then one day, we’re just too old for such things.
Not this lady. I’ve been a fan of slime and awesome slime recipes because the science is sound, the sensory experience is relaxing, and darn it – it’s just fun!
Let’s make some foamy, fluffy pumpkin spice latte slime together.
Supplies for the Perfect Fall Slime
You’ll need a few things on hand to whip up this fun Fall slime. Grab an airtight container and the following:
White Slime (Foamy, Fluffy)
- 1 cup (8 ounces) white glue
- 1 cup shaving cream
- 1 cup foaming handwash
- 3/4+ teaspoon baking soda
- 1+ tablespoon contact solution (must contain sodium borate or another boric acid agent)
“Pumpkin Spice Slime”
- 5 ounces clear glue
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- acrylic paint in tan and brown
- 1 tablespoon contact solution
- Pumpkin pie fragrance (or the spice blend)
- Coffee fragrance (or instant coffee)
- Optional, brown glitter
How to Make Pumpkin Spice Latte Slime
- In a craft bowl, add the white glue, shaving cream, and mix it together with the hand wash. The slime will be foamy!
- Add in baking soda (start with 3/4 teaspoon and add more during kneading). This is what thickens up the slime, so only ad more after kneading.
- Mix in the contact solution, starting with 1 tablespoon, adding more to reduce the stickiness. The slime should form a mass.
- Knead the slime and set it aside.
- Repeat steps 1 and 2 with the clear slime and ingredients, but also add the acrylic paint – just eyeball it until you get the desired color. If you’re using it, add glitter, and the a few drops of the fragrance oils (or your spices). Stir.
- Add in the contact solution and knead. Add more baking soda to thicken the slime and more contact solution to reduce stickiness, if necessary.
- Layer your slime and start mixing!
