Sequin Pumpkin Slime

| |

A few years ago we created our pumpkin slime with pumpkin seeds, so today’s Sequin Pumpkin Slime is a fun follow up using pumpkin confetti – which is much easier than cleaning pumpkin seeds!

Squishy, stretchy and NOT sticky pumpkin slime is the perfect fall slime recipe for kids using pumpkin confetti and just 3 ingredients!

DIY Pumpkin Slime Craft

My daughter is the queen of pumpkin desserts and slime, so today’s stretchy, squishy pumpkin slime was a total hit with her!

We used some pumpkin confetti leftover from some Halloween party decorations and they had the fun bonus of dying our clear glue slime orange. You could use any seasonal table scatter or confetti to make this easy pumpkin slime.

This is a great sensory activity for kids in the fall and would make a great activity for the kids’ table at Thanksgiving. (Just make sure there is at least one responsible child who will keep the mess makers in line… my child would not be that responsible child.)

This would also make a cute homemade gift for kids during the fall, especially if you packaged the slime in little pumpkin 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 Pumpkin Confetti Slime

Pour the clear glue into a medium-sized bowl.

Use a fork to stir in 1/4 cup warm water.

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 glitter.

(Our glitter dyed the slime orange, but if yours doesn’t you can add a few drops orange food dye to achieve an orange color.)
