Are your kids brave enough for a session of Eerie Eyeball Slime sensory play? It’s green. It’s gooey. It’s slimy. It’s gruesome. It’s only for the bold! Ewwwww.
Eerie Eyeball Slime is perfect for some Halloween sensory play or whenever your kids want to role play witches, wizards and all things potion making.
Eyeball Slime is cheap and easy to make and you can mix it up in different colours and add other things besides eyes to keep it fresh and inviting. How about black or red sensory slime with toy insects or spiders. Arghhhh who’d have thought sensory play could get so wonderfully disgusting, LOL?!

How To Make Simple Eerie Eyeball Slime – Ewww!
1 – In a small bowl mix together ¾ tsp Borax and 1 ⅓ cups hot water until the Borax dissolves.
2 – In a second large bowl mix 1 ½ cups of hot water with 2 cups of white school glue, 10 drops of green food colouring and a couple of drops of peppermint extract. You can add more or less food colouring to reach your desired shade and of course use any food colour or food extract you like. We chose peppermint because it went well with the green colour.
3 – Carefully pour the borax mixture into the glue mixture and stir thoroughly. After a while you’ll be able to switch from a spoon to your hands as the mixture thickens. Knead and squeeze the mixture until all of the liquid has been incorporated into the slime and you have a lovely slippery slimy consistency!
5 – Mix it all together and it’s ready for a sensory play session!
