Use jello to make slime at home.

Kids love playing with slime. Slime is slippery, mushy and fun to use for playing pranks or squishing between fingers. Making slime is a fun Halloween project or party activity for kids. You can make slime using things you have around the house, but it's not recommended to eat slime, so supervise young children with slime. Wash your hands after playing with slime and don't put the slime in your mouth.
