These glow in the dark slime favors were a hit at my daughter’s Halloween party, and they’re so easy to make. You can make a batch ahead to give away as favors and make another batch during the party so the kids can get in on the action (add fake eyeballs to the bowl, and you’ve got a winner). To make spooky and creepy glow in the dark slime you’ll need:
-(1) large mixing bowl
-(2) 4 oz bottles of Elmer’s glue
-(1) 2 oz bottle of glow in the dark paint
-3-4 drops food coloring
-1/2 teaspoon borax
-1/3 cup warm water
Method: Pour glue into bowl. Fill empty glue bottles with a small amount of warm water; shake to release any remaining glue and pour into bowl. Mix glow in the dark paint into glue. Add food coloring until desired shade is reached.
In a separate container, mix borax and water. Stir until borax is dissolved. Pour borax/water mixture into glue mixture, mixing water in small pours until desired consistency is reached. You may not use all water/borax mixture. The more borax you use, the thicker the mixture will become. You may want to mix with your hands as the slime becomes thicker.

Until next Halloween!
