How to Host AN EPIC Slime Party?!
It is a well known fact that kids LOVE SLIME!! This is why shows like Nickelodeon TV always have game shows filled to the roof with slime, huge slime events, and celebrity sliming. When it comes to slime, kid's can't get enough of the runny, gooey, slippery, yucky stuff. So why not embrace it and make your child's next birthday party a slime party?! In this guide we will talk you through everything you need to know about hosting an epic slime party!!
What is a Slime Birthday Party?
A slime birthday party is a themed celebration in which as many things as possible involve, relate to, or are covered in, slime! This can include slime making activities, slime games, slime decorations, slimy party favors, slimy foods, slime themed invitations and slime battles. It's a yucky theme that may get a little messy but the kid's (and adults) will have an absolute ball.
SLIME Party Ideas
There are several different types of slime that are used for different activities. There is the more runny style of slime that is used for pouring on people (like in the Nickelodeon TV shows), or for slime color battles, then there is the thicker style of slime that is fun to stretch, squish in your hands and experiment with. An awesome slime party would involve activities and games with both types of slime. Slime parties are best suited outdoors or under patio areas that can be hosed down, as the action can get messy.
Our first range of slime games involves slime color battles (similar to a water fight but with super colorful slime). Using Party GOAT™ Instant slime you can make huge quantities of runny slime (by simply adding water). This slime is ideal for kid's to do battle with. The slime can be sucked up and sprayed out of water blasters or poured into water balloons to make slime bombs! Party GOAT instant slime comes in 4 vibrant colors - Green, Pink, Yellow and Blue. Each team can have their own color with the winning team being determined by how much of their slime they manage to land on their opponents. As shown in the videos, slime battles and other slime games are fun for kid's, teenagers or adults! Instant Slime can be purchased in individual colors (bulk 25 Gallons), or in Battle Packs, with enough powder to make 10 Gallons of each of the 4 colors.

Slime Game Show!
Remember the old Nickelodeon TV game shows where contestants would answer questions or complete challenges, with the loser at the end of each round often getting a huge bucket of slime dumped on their heads? These slime game shows were hugely popular because kid's love watching someone get slimed. Now they can join in the action! Watch the videos below to learn how to easily set up a Slime Game Show in your own backyard. A quick set up for super exciting slime races! Or create a carnival style target game using Instant Slime! These ridiculous games are so much fun to play at a slime party.
More Games with Slime
Two more fun games with Party GOAT instant slime.
Find the object slime game - For this slime game you will need to fill a large inflatable pool with instant slime. Tell the kid's to close their eyes and hide something small underneath the slime (such as a coin or easter egg). When you say go the kids need to jump into the pool and race to find the hidden object. This game can also be played like musical chairs. If there are 6 kid's for example, hide 5 small objects. Whoever fails to find an object drops out of the game, play continues with one less object each round.
Slime time game - You can add a sliming element to any game. For example you could have the kid's play a game of Jenga. Write "slime time" on a few of the blocks. If anyone is unfortunate enough to draw a slime time block, they are made to sit in the "slime chair" while someone pours a cup or bucket of slime over their head. You could add other blocks as well such as "no slime for me", if someone draws this block then they are safe from sliming for the next three rounds. At the end of the game, the player that makes the tower fall could also get slimed!
Party GOAT slime in non toxic and biodegradable. It does not contain any harmful chemicals often found in other slime products or home made recipes. Our Instant Slime does not contain Borax or Boron.

Slime Birthday Party Activities
Another great party idea for sensory play is to set up a slime making station. This is where kids will make the thick, gooey, and stretchy type of slime. Set out a table covered in buckets, containers, slime making ingredients, different colored paints or food coloring, and small charms that can be mixed in. Let the kids get creative making and mixing slime in a range of colors and adding their favorite objects in. You can watch the video below that shows one way to make slime. There are some great slime making packages that can be purchased that include everything you need. Including a range of charms to mix in (e.g unicorns, beads, gems, glitter)
Slime Party SuPPlies
We have included some of the most popular slime making kits on Amazon below. Please note, we have not verified the safety of each of these products. Do you own research to ensure they do not contain harmful chemicals.
SLIME Parties for Girls
Unicorn themed slime parties are very popular among girls. These parties usually include lots of pink and purple pastel colors that can be mixed to make rainbow slime. Unicorn charms, gems and beads can be added to make their slime beautiful. Party guests can also dress up in unicorn costumes or onesies!
Slime Parties for boys
While boys can also like pinks and purples and unicorns, they typically tend to gravitate more towards green and blue colored slime. There are dinosaur themed slime making kits that boys love so you could consider a dinosaur themed slime party (many girls also love dinosaurs).
What's a party without decorations? Don't forget to look for slime themed decorations or make your own by cutting splatter patters out of bright green paper. Slime themed parties are becoming more popular every year (as more kids realize how fun they are) so there are plenty of slime decorations available online. We have listed some below. A slime party should have lots of decorations that contain colorful splatter patterns and runny, slimy looking text. Cakes can be decorated by splattering icing on top or using splat shaped cake toppers.
Slime Party Invitations
Slime invitations should be written with runny, slimy looking text and lots of slime splashes on the page. Keep them colorful. Also as slime parties tend to get a little messy, don't forget to tell your guests on the slime invitation, to bring a clean change of clothes! Some examples of slime invitations are listed below.
Food ideas for a slime party
Wondering what food to serve at a slime party? We suggest you stick with the theme and try to create slimy or stretchy foods for your slime party. You could melt marshmallows or gummy candies in the microwave to turn them into a melted yet delicious form of sticky slime. Put stretchy caramel treats and slippery jello on the slime party dessert table. Make bright green icing and create runny, dripping, splatter patterns on cakes and muffins. Serve rainbow colored string cheese toasted sandwiches as shown in the video.
Slime party favors
At the end of the party you can supply each child with a party favor bag to take home. Give them each small plastic tubs so they can take home their own creation. Or buy small pre-made slime tubs as seen below.
