Autumn is a great time for children to get messy! The weather starts turning cooler, there is normally more rain in the forecast; this means more mud and mess naturally. If you are looking for some indoor fun for the children, try making some edible slime. Don’t mistake this idea and recipe as a food, but you can rest assured that if the children put it in their mouth, it won’t hurt them or make them sick. This STEM activity lends itself to getting the children involved in making it. This recipe incorporates math and science using measuring skills and some chemistry as the ingredients mix and change their form. Have some safe, gooey, slimy fun with edible pudding slime! 

Don’t forget to wash your hands before starting the activity. 

 Edible Pudding Slime 


  • ¼ cup instant pudding mix (you can use any flavor of your liking) 
  • 1 cup corn starch 
  • 1/3 cup warm water 


  1. Add instant pudding mix and half of the cornstarch to a mixing bowl. Add 1/3 cup water and stir until the slime begins to form (it starts off sticky!) 
  1. Slowly add the rest of cornstarch and stir as you go. When it starts to thicken and gets hard to stir with a spoon, it’s time to get your hands in there and finish kneading it! It’s a messy job, but somebody must do it! 

 *If the slime is too sticky add a little more corn starch a little at a time until it’s the consistency you need. 

*If the slime is too dry, add a little more water to it. 

 Health and Safety Tips: 

  • Always wash your hands before and after using the slime! 
  • Clean and dry the surface before and after each use 
  • Only use the slime 1-2 times and then discard to ensure no mold appears (keep no longer than 2-3 days)! 
  • Store the slime in an airtight container between uses 
  • HAVE FUN!!!
