I don’t like creepy crawlies especially spiders. I do however, don’t mind the fake spiders like the ones in this Spider Slime.
In all seriousness, I am TERRIFIED of spiders. I don’t care how big or small, spiders are not my friend.
In fact, even the smallest spider in the house would freak me out so much that I’d call my husband and ask him to come home from work on his lunch just to kill it.
Yup, my fear of spiders is that bad.
Thankfully, my brain can see the difference between real spiders and the fake spiders used in this craft because otherwise, I’d be DOOMED.
And, with Halloween on the way, what could be a better way to celebrate than with this FAKE Spider Slime using FAKE spiders?
It’s ooey, gooey, and resembles that of an egg sack filled with recently hatched baby spiders. A giant mommy spider would be so proud.
What you need to make spider slime:
- 1/2 Cup Water
- 1/2 Cup White Glue
- 1/2 Cup Liquid Starch
- 1/3 cup White Styrofoam Balls
- 1/2 cup Mini Spiders
- 1-2 drops lemon essential oil (optional but makes it smell so good)
- Large mixing bowl
- Spoon or Large Plastic Stick
How to make spider slime:
Next, slowly add your liquid starch. You’ll notice the mixture will start to become slime in no time! Keep stirring.
Once you’ve reach the slimy consistency, add the styrofoam balls and knead with your hands.
The last step is to add in your plastic baby spiders. Knead again.
Now, stretch, and play with this slime. Even get out that mama spider and have her protect her babies!!!
This slime is so stretchy and the styrofoam balls really it give that authentic look of a spider egg sack!
This slime is perfect for Halloween and even Halloween classroom parties!
