My favorite thing about this Fall Slime Recipe is the scent. It smells like one of the best fall scents out there - cinnamon. Every time your kids play with it, they will be greeted by a delightful fragrance. The autumn leaves make this the perfect slime to enjoy this season.

Please supervise your kids when making slime and have them wash their hands when they are done playing. This is not edible.
Fall Slime Recipe
You will need:
1 airtight container
One 5 oz bottle of clear glue
½ cup water
½ teaspoon baking soda
1 tablespoon contact solution
Fall Vase Filler - the one used here is from Hobby Lobby, but you can get something similar here.
Cinnamon Essential Oil
In a bowl or container, pour an entire 5 oz bottle of clear glue. I like saving those containers that lunch meat comes in, as they are perfect for making slime.
Add ½ cup of water to the clear glue.
Add in ½ teaspoon of baking soda to the water and glue mixture and stir.
Now it is time for my kids' favorite part - adding the glitter! Glitter makes everything better, and when combined with a clear glue slime, gives a pretty, sparkly look. For this fall slime recipe, use a mix of red and gold glitter.
Now it is time to make the slime smell divine! Add just a few drops of cinnamon essential oil.
Add in some of the fall vase filler leaves.
To get the slime to form, add 1 tablespoon of contact solution. The slime will instantly begin to form.
Start mixing the slime. It will be super STICKY!
Keep mixing the solution in the bowl until it starts to come together. This usually requires more mixing than you would think.
Start to knead the slime until it is no longer sticky.
I recommend playing with this glitter slime on a table or tray. Do not play with slime near carpet as it can be very hard to get out if some falls on the rug.
This slime can be stored in an airtight container. After noticing my kids leaving slime everywhere and finding lots of messes, I purchased these containers and they have been a life saver.
Between the sparkle from the glitter and the lovely cinnamon scent, this slime will be one your kids favorite things about fall.
