Amazing DIY cinnamon scented fall slime! This simple homemade cinnamon slime is perfect for kids of all ages! Make a batch today.
My daughter loves making slime. She loves squishing and stretching it. Slime is a fun sensory activity for kids of all ages. It’s also a fun science activity to do with preschoolers. You can talk about mixtures and chemical reactions.
This cinnamon-scented fall slime recipe is perfect for your autumn activities. Add any type of autumn vase filler (pumpkins, leaves, apples, etc.) to coordinate it with your fall themes.
Cinnamon-Scented Fall Slime
What You’ll Need
- 1 airtight container
- 1 5 oz bottle of clear glue
- ½ cup water
- ½ tsp baking soda
- 1 tbsp contact solution
- Fall Vase Filler – colored gems, plastic leaves, pumpkins, apples, etc.
- Glitter – red and gold
- Cinnamon Essential Oil
- Small bowl
What You’ll Do
Pour the entire 5 oz. bottle of clear glue into a small bowl. You may want to prop the bottle upside down for a few minutes to get every last drop of glue. However, if your kids are anxious to get started, just do the best you can.
Add a half cup of water and a half teaspoon of baking soda. Stir this mixture to combine the ingredients.
Next, add the glitter. I used a mixture of red and gold to achieve a nice fall finish.
Add a couple of drops of cinnamon essential oil. Just add a couple. That is all it will take to get a nice cinnamon scent to your slime. Too much oil will overpower the slime.
Now, it’s time to add your fall vase fillers. I used plastic leaves from Dollar Tree, but you can use colored gems, pumpkins, apples, or acorns. Choose one to compliment your current autumn theme.
Add the contact lens solution – just a tablespoon. Stir.
Please note… this mixture will be sticky at first. Don’t panic! Mix the solution in the bowl until it starts to form.
Knead the slime until it is no longer sticky.
Store the slime in an airtight container. Ours typically lasts a few weeks (less if it’s played with frequently) before changing consistency.
