You can do more than carve a pumpkin! How about make pumpkin slime?
You will need:
* Small pumpkin
* 1/4 cup liquid starch
* 1/2 cup clear PVA Washable School Glue (Elmer's)
* Measuring cup, spoon and knife (adult supervision required)
Step 1: Cut the top off of the pumpkin
Step 2: Make room in the pumpkin by lossening up all of the seeds and guts. Take out some of the seeds and guts to make room for the slime mixture.
Step 3: Mix 1/2 cup room temperature water with 1/2 cup of the school glue in a separate bowl. Stir to fully incorporate.
Step 4: Measure 1/4 cup of liquid starch and pour directly into the pumpkin.
Step 5: Pour the glue and water mixture into pumpkin.
Step 6: Get your hands in there and mix. The image below shows all of the ingredients in the pumpkin.
Knead your slime well after mixing. This will help its consistency. You can knead the slime in the bowl before picking it up. This slime is stretchy. Adding more liquid starch will reduce stickiness but create stiffer slime over time. Enjoy your slime!
For a halloween fright: tip over your pumpkin and watch the slime ooze out! Put into a plastic sealed sandwich bag and make for mess free play!
