With only a few days away from Halloween and so many of us staying home this year, I thought it would be fun to share a spooky activity you can make with your kids that they will LOVE! Fluffy Slime Brain Activity!

This activity combines both sensory and imagination play! Traditional slime may be my biggest fear but since this slime is “fluffy” it isn’t nearly as messy as traditional slime! Thank goodness!

Even though Trick or Treating may not be happening that doesn’t mean Halloween is canceled! I hope this activity brings you joy and memories!
