Red Apple Slime

| |

Last year we made an Edible Apple Pie Slime which smelled amazing, but wasn’t as stretchy or squishy as a glue-based slime, so we went a more traditional route with today’s DIY Apple Slime.

A stretchy, squishy red apple slime with a vibrant apple scent - this apple confetti slime is the perfect fall slime if your day of apple picking gets rained out!

DIY Apple Slime Craft

Last year, we had a very special request for a red apple slime.

While I think a vibrant red slime would be gorgeous, the thought of adding a ton of red food coloring to slime gave me visions of bright red stains on hands, clothing, walls… 

No, thank you.

This pretty confetti slime is a perfect compromise, with bright red apple confetti adding a pop of color to a stretchy, squishy clear glue slime.

We also added a few drops of apple candy flavoring to give this slime an amazing apple scent. (You can skip this step, if desired.)

This apple slime is a fun sensory activity for kids during the fall, especially if a planned trip for apple picking gets rained out. It would also make a cute homemade gift – especially if packaged in little apple containers.

Slime can require a bit of experimentation and patience, especially if you’re still new to it. If you run into any slime fails, check out this troubleshooting post to help fix your slime.

How to Make Apple Slime

Pour the clear glue into a medium-sized bowl.

Use a fork to stir in 1/4 cup warm water and optional apple scent.

Add 1/4 cup Liquid Starch and stir well for 2 minutes.

Test the slime and add more water if too stiff, more Liquid Starch if too sticky.

Continue stirring until the slime forms into a ball, then knead for 2 minutes, adding more water or liquid starch, as needed.

Once the slime is stretchy and no longer sticky, knead in the apple glitter.
