Kids are often fascinated by things that scare them just a little bit. That’s why most kids love stories about monsters (that is, as long as they are not too scary). You can show kids that monsters are nothing to be afraid of when you make this monster slime with them.
This monster slime recipe uses just three ingredients and will transform any slime that you make into a “terrifying” monster with dozens of eyes.

Easy Monster Slime Recipe
The recipe used in this slime is my favorite because it never fails! We like to use this recipe as the base for all of the slime that we make with clear glue.
The basic recipe is a one-to-one ratio of glue to liquid laundry starch. If it is humid outside, you may need to add just a bit more starch than glue, but you’ll be able to tell if you need to add more starch if your slime is sticky.
This slime will last for weeks if stored in an airtight container, and the slime can always be refreshed with the addition of a little more liquid laundry starch.
What you need to make green monster slime:
- Green and purple soap dye (you can also use food coloring, but it might stain little hands)
- Clear glue
- Black glitter
- Googly eyes
- Liquid laundry starch
- Metal fork
- Two mixing bowls
- ¼ measuring cup
How to Make This Monster Slime Recipe
Pour ¼ of a cup of glue into each of your two bowls.
Add a small bit of purple and green dye to the bowls. Sprinkle a few shakes of glitter into the glue mixture.
Stir the mixtures with a fork. If your colors are too dark, you can add another ¼ cup of glue to make them a bit brighter.
Pour ¼ of a cup of liquid laundry starch into each bowl. Stir with a fork until it creates a ball of slime in the center of the bowl.
If the slime is still too sticky and sticks to your fingers, add a bit more laundry starch to the slime.
Let the slime rest for about two minutes.
Stretch the slime with your hands a few times to brighten the slime and make it ready for play.
Sprinkle the slime with various sizes of googly eyes to transform regular slime into monster slime!
Kids will love playing with their slime “monsters” for hours.
