This Halloween DIY is sure to scare up a good time with your kids! Here’s you how can make your own Easy Vampire Blood Slime.
I love making projects for Halloween that you can transition from SCARY to FUN!
This Vampire Blood Slime is perfect for that! Make some for the little kids and give them something FUN to play with. Or you can make some for the big kids and let them be creative when turning it into something SCARY! Either way, this is an EASY DIY that you’re going to love.
Here is what you need to make your own Easy Vampire Blood Slime:
- 1 (6 ounce) bottle Elmer’s Glue in clear
- About ¼ cup warm water
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- 1 tablespoon contact lens solution (MUST contain boric acid)
- Red liquid food coloring
When I say this is an “EASY DIY”, trust me.
Empty the glue into a large bowl.
Fill the empty glue bottle about ⅓ full with warm water (about ¼ cup) and seal with the lid. Shake well to combine the remaining glue with the water. Pour into bowl with glue and stir to combine.
Next, mix in the food coloring.
Add the baking soda to the glue and stir to mix thoroughly.
Add contact lens solution to the glue mixture and stir well. (Note: regular glue will require less contact lens solution than glitter glue. Add the contact lens solution slowly, mixing between additions, and add only enough to bring the glue together into a soft ball.)
Remove the slime from the bowl. The slime will be sticky. Begin to play with the slime, kneading it as you would bread dough, to bring the slime together. The slime is ready when it is no longer sticky.
Once you make your first batch of slime, you’re going to want to continue making it. Young or old, there is something about slime that is addicting to play with. I catch myself playing with it more than I ever thought I would.
This would be a FUN project to do a a Halloween party with your kids and their friends. I love being able to give something besides candy.
