DIY Apple Pie Slime is Perfect for Fall!

Looking for a slime recipe that fits the fall season to a tee?  Look no further!  This easy-to-make slime recipe is perfect for all of your fall gatherings and holidays, including anything related to apple picking, Halloween, harvest season, Thanksgiving, etc. I made this apple pie slime with the kids a few years ago and we have made different variations of it since.

If you haven’t completely tired of the slime craze, give this one a try. If you have a different base recipe for slime that you prefer, you should be able add the nutmeg and cinnamon to it to get the desired scent.  (One note – if you are making soft puffy slime with shaving cream, you must use unscented shaving cream or else the shaving cream’s scent will overpower the entire concoction.)

Playing with Slime

You can try storing this slime in an airtight container to play with another day.  We didn’t have too much luck storing it – it seemed that the saline seeped out of the slime and left a big rubber ball instead of the once-stretchy slime!  You might have better luck with that than we did!  Either way, this recipe worked out great for lots of “in-the-moment” fun.  It used minimal ingredients and the kids had a great time playing with it all afternoon!
