Dr. Seuss’s birthday is just a few weeks away and I can’t think of a better way to celebrate than with this Dr. Seuss slime recipe. On March 2nd schools across America will be celebrating Dr. Seuss’s birthday with crafts, cat in the hat activities, parades and of course reading. If you are looking for a fun activity to do with your class or even kids at home then this Dr Seuss slime recipe is for you!
How To Make Dr Seuss Slime
To make Dr Seuss slime your going to have to make 2 separate batches of slime. Don’t worry! This slime is super easy to make. Here’s what you need.
- White Slime: 1/2 Cup White Elmer’s Glue, 1/2 Cup Water, 1/4-1/2 Cup Liquid Starch.
- Red Slime: 1/2 Cup Clear Elmer’s Glue, 1/2 Cup Water, 1/2 Cup Liquid Starch, red Food coloring.
Slime Without Borax
Liquid Starch can be hard to find in stores. You can pick up an inexpensive container of liquid starch here (the same kind I use). I also like to purchase my glue in bulk so that we can make slime anytime we want. Plus it’s a lot cheaper to buy these in larger quantities.
To make the slime mix the glue and water together in a small bowl. Mix well. If your making the red you will add about 8 drops or so of red food coloring to the clear glue solution. Next slowly add in the liquid starch a little bit at a time. You’ll stir as you add the starch in the glue. Add the starch until you get a big slime ball. Now transfer the slime to a clean bowl and knead the slime for a couple of minutes until it’s no longer sticky. The more you play with the slime the better it will set up.
Dr. Seuss Hat Activities
After you’ve made the 2 batches of slime, now comes the fun part. You’re going to mix the slime together to form a cat in the hat slime. You’ll take small pieces of the white slime and roll it out into a line. Then add a layer of red slime. Next another layer of white slime and so on. This will form your cat hat.
Dr Seuss Slime Is Fun For All Ages
This Dr. Seuss slime recipe is so much fun to make. It’s great for kids of all ages. One of the best parts about this slime is that kids love watching the colors mix together and change right before your eyes.
How to Store Slime
My kids love to play with slime so after we make it, I always store our slime in a ziplock bag or plastic container with lid. This keeps the slime fresh for a few days. After that, in my experience, the slime tends to get a little bit gross from the kids playing with it so much. When it starts to get like this we toss it and make a fresh batch of slime.
