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.

Materials

  • 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

Instructions

  1. In a craft bowl, add the white glue, shaving cream, and mix it together with the hand wash. The slime will be foamy!
  2. 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.
  3. Mix in the contact solution, starting with 1 tablespoon, adding more to reduce the stickiness. The slime should form a mass.
  4. Knead the slime and set it aside.
  5. 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.
  6. Add in the contact solution and knead. Add more baking soda to thicken the slime and more contact solution to reduce stickiness, if necessary.
  7. Layer your slime and start mixing!
