I love fall. The cool weather, the clothes, the pumpkins, the food, and of course the leaves. So in honor of my love of fall, I thought I'd get my kids excited too with some fall slime. My kids love slime sometimes a little much, and slime in my 3-year-olds hair is very much a reality in my house on slime days!
Fall Slime Using Fall Leaves – No Borax!
No borax slime has been a big deal in my house I hate the idea of my kids playing with something that has that kind of chemical in it. Now I know glue and the liquid starch have chemicals too. I get it so I have been looking into edible slime. My kids love this Nutella edible slime. It's only 2 ingredients and completely edible!
While I personally like making this fall slime with the leaves as seen in the pictures you can also use pumpkin beads in the slime, or a mixture of the autumn harvest ones that include leaves, scarecrows, candy corn, pumpkins, and acorns. If you really want to take on the extra work you can separate each one and give each kid a different set of beans so one kid gets the candy corn ones while another gets the pumpkin ones. This would make a super fun school project!
If you are really looking for a fun slime and are willing to get a bit adventurous I saw this pumpkin guts slime that could be fun! Go carve your pumpkin using one of our Over 700 Free Pumpkin Carving Stencils and have your fun. When you are done take your pumpkin guts and seeds and extend the fun and make some pumpkin slime! My mom always roasted the seed for us to snack on but I have to say I kind of like this idea much better!
Of course, if that isn't up your ally we have a ton of pumpkin recipes you will love you can use those pumpkin guts on and stick to this super fun and easy fall slime below.
So let's get on to the recipe!

In a large bowl, combine the glue and the water and mix until well combined.
Add in your confetti. About a couple of tablespoons of confetti
Add the half cup of liquid starch and mix. Keep mixing until it's no longer sticky.
You might need to add in a bit more liquid starch but make sure you mix it good and fast. When you think you have mixed it a ton and it might be done, then you want to mix it even longer, trust me.
When you are done you can extend your play for a few days by storing your slime in an air-tight container. We have gotten our slime to last a week at most in the containers before the kids lose interest so it might last even longer than that!
