Edible Slime for Halloween

Halloween just wouldn’t be complete without SLIME! I couldn’t miss out on this opportunity!

For the past two weeks, my tutee has been begging me to make slime! I think her curiosity started because of Nickelodeon and all the slime they use! So anyway, I figured I’ll just have her make goo since it was something I was already familiar with. However, after browsing the internet for more fun activities, I came across a recipe for edible slime… and this was something I just couldn’t resist not doing!


What you will need

  • 14oz. or around 400mL Condensed Milk
  • 1-3 table spoons of starch
  • Cooking pan or Saucepan
  • Food coloring
  • Flavor (optional)


Step 1: Pour the condensed milk in a saucepan. The amount doesn’t really matter.


I let the kids taste the condensed milk. After pouring it all into the saucepan, they still kept asking for more! So I let them lick the measuring cup!

They were already having fun without the slime!


Step 2: Cook over low or medium heat while mixing in the cornstarch until the mixture thickens.


The recipe I followed originally said 1 table spoon but I kept adding cornstarch because the mixture wasn’t thickening. You can do the same.


Step 3: Since I had two kids, I poured the mixture into separate bowls for each of them to try

Step 4: Add the flavoring(vanilla extract) and the food coloring


I love her reaction when the mixture started turning green! She had the look of joy and amazement!


Step 5: While playing with it, I felt as if it were missing something. So I took some mini (REALLY mini) bread chips/toasts we had at home and gave it to them and told them those were eyeballs!


Their imagination took over with the whole eyeball thing! It was so much fun!


Step 6: Play and eat!


Seal and refrigerate to keep the freshness! Have fun!!
