DIY Pumpkin Guts Slime

Carving pumpkins this year?

Save the leftover pumpkin seeds and guts when carving your Jack-O-Lantern this fall and make some DIY Pumpkin Guts Slime! It’s a fun project to do with the kids, and it really does make some great slime with the pumpkin seeds!

My daughter is still obsessed with making slime, and we had fun experimenting with this creative project.

Easy, messy craft!

Yep, slime can be a little messy, but it’s FUN and pretty easy to clean up. There are probably a few ways to make this slime, and we are using contact solution today. Make sure it contains boric acid and sodium borate so it’ll work as an activator (I used this Blink brand). For an alternative, try using 1/2 cup of liquid starch like Stay-Flo instead of contact solution and baking soda.

Supplies Needed:
  • In a mixing bowl, combine glue and water.
  • Mix in pumpkin seeds/guts.
  • Mix in baking soda. Mix in the contact solution as an activator. You’ll notice a slime will form right away and become firm. Keep stirring and manipulating the slime. Add additional contact solution if it’s still too sticky.  Eventually, you’ll get a jiggly and fun slime to play with!

What fun, jiggly pumpkin guts slime!

The seeds make it more of a cool sensory experience. We played with ours for a long time and liked the jiggly texture.😃

To store, keep it in the fridge in a covered container for up to a couple days, since it contains fresh pumpkin. Please remind kids it’s NOT actually edible!

  • HIP List
  • Print

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply move the post to your Hip List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the Hip List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, first head on over here and register and log into your account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back to later at a later time, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account. To remove a post from your HIP List, just click on the HIP List icon and it will be removed.

When logged into your account, you will see the HIP List icon at the bottom of every post if you are viewing in classic view.

If you prefer to view in river view, you will see the HIP List icon located on every post above the post title and to the right.

If you're wanting to print a certain deal, blog post, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. This will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include when printing from your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you! If there are deals (or portions of deals) that you are not interested in printing, just click on the red x button to remove them. To restore a section, click on the green arrow icon in the upper right hand corner.
