Pumpkin Spice Latte Slime

Yes. We. Did. Do. That.

Calling all fall fans. We have managed to make the most iconic fall drink into an amazing slime that you (and your kids!) will LOVE! Oh and did I mention that it really smells delicious?

Now, this slime is actually a combination of two different slime recipes. A mix of our classic slime recipe and a fluffy version. But don’t worry, they are both really easy to make!

Now, before we get started, there are a few special things that you will need for this slime.

And containers. You can use a ziploc baggie, but they are hard and don’t work as well. I really recommend these containers. They are a great size, super cheap and keep the slime in great shape for playing with later!

Ingredients to make pumpkin spice latte slime:


  • 1 airtight container
  • 1 cup white glue
  • 1 cup shaving cream
  • 1 cup foaming hand wash
  • ¾ tsp baking soda
  • 1 tbsp contact solution
  • 5 oz clear glue
  • ½ cup water
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • Acrylic paint: latte, caramel, and brown
  • 1 tbsp contact solution
  • Pumpkin pie scented fragrance
  • Coffee scented fragrance
  • Brown glitter
  • Small bowl

How to make pumpkin spice latte slime:

  1. In a bowl, measure out 1 cup white glue.

  2. Add 1 cup shaving cream. Shaving cream is a little funky to measure so a little extra won’t hurt it! 🙂
  3. Mix together and add 1 cup of foaming hand wash.
  4. Mix well. Your slime should be super foamy.

  5. Add in 1 tsp of cornstarch and about 1 tsp of body lotion. These will help your slime stretch and be fluffy.
  6. Next add in ¾ – 1 tsp of baking soda. (Start with ¾ of a tsp and add more during kneading if you need to. Baking soda is what will thicken your slime up.)

  7. Finally, add in contact saline solution. Start with 1 tbsp. If you need to add a bit more, you can. Saline solution makes the slime less sticky. You will know you have enough when the slime pulls away from the side of the bowl.
  8. Knead the slime.

  9. Set aside. This will be the whipped topping to your pumpkin spice latte.

  10. In a small bowl, pour 5 oz of clear glue.

  11. Add ½ cup of water and stir.

  12. Sprinkle in ½ tsp baking soda .

  13. Add a few drops of both pumpkin pie and coffee fragrance oils. Stir.

  14. Add acrylic paint. I used a mix of latte, caramel and brown.

  15. Sprinkle in brown glitter.
  16. Stir well.

  17. Add 1 tsp of contact solution. Stir and then knead.
  18. If the slime needs to be thickened, add a bit more baking soda. If the slime needs to be less sticky, add more contact solution.

  19. Layer your brown coffee slime and top with a fluffy whipped topping slime swirl.

When you swirl your slime together, it reminds me of the cool coffee designs with the swirls.

I have to say, this pumpkin spice latte slime is one of my favorites that we have made. It smells amazing. And the two different textures make it super fun to play with!

Pumpkin Guts Slime

Scented Pumpkin Guts Slime Recipe

Fall is here!!!! WOO HOO! To celebrate, we have a series of super fall inspired slimes that we will be sharing this week. These were a lot of fun to make. If you follow us on Facebook, then you may have seen our Facebook Live making this Scented Pumpkin Guts Slime Recipe! If not, then no worries, I’ve got you covered.

Scented Pumpkin Guts Slime Recipe

Do you remember making jack-o-lanterns as a kid? You cut off the top of your pumpkin and then the scooping begins. Stringy, gooey, pumpkin guts filled with all of those pumpkin seeds. It was kind of the original slime. I really wanted to capture that with this slime. In a not so gross way.

Oh and it’s scented. It smells….AMAZING.

(Note: While it looks great, it isn’t edible. Please don’t try to eat it!)

Scented Pumpkin Guts Slime Recipe

A few things before we get started.

  • If you haven’t done you pumpkin yet, keep this slime in mind and save your pumpkin seeds. If you have, no big deal. You can buy pumpkin seeds at the grocery store.
  • For that pumpkin orange color, we used food coloring. I got it from our neon food coloring set, but you can also use the soap colorants or even acrylic paint.
  • We decided to keep this slime fun on it’s own. But feel free to add glitter or sequins if you want.
  • To get that perfect pumpkin smell, my go to is P&J Fragrances. You can buy the pumpkin on it’s own, but if your kiddo makes a lot of slime, you may want to check out their sets. It breaks down to about $2.50 or so each (usually) when you get a set. We have bought several from them and they are all awesome. Bonus: You can add a few drops to your candle warmers and your whole house smells wonderful!
  • And finally…containers. Y’all. Containers in our house are kind of a big deal. Between the slime that I make for our blogs….that the kids insist on keeping….and the slime our daughter makes (she even has a YouTube channel and takes custom orders in school!) We can NEVER have enough it seems like. These are the best. Perfect size. Affordable. They work.

You Will Need:

  • 1 airtight container
  • 1 5 oz bottle of clear glue
  • ½ cup water
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • 1 tbsp contact solution
  • Pumpkin Seeds
  • Pumpkin Pie Seasoning
  • Orange food coloring
  • Small bowl

Scented Pumpkin Guts Slime Recipe

In a bowl, pour the entire 5 oz bottle of clear glue. Add in ½ cup of water.

Scented Pumpkin Guts Slime Recipe

Drop a few drops of orange food coloring. Stir.

Scented Pumpkin Guts Slime Recipe

Add a few drops of pumpkin fragrance.

Scented Pumpkin Guts Slime Recipe

Baking soda helps determine the thickness of your slime. I add just under 1/2 a tsp and add more if needed when I am kneading the slime.

Scented Pumpkin Guts Slime Recipe

Once the baking soda is stirred in, pour pumpkin seeds into the slime. Give it a quick stir.

Scented Pumpkin Guts Slime Recipe

Add in the saline contact solution. This is the one we use. Saline solution will keep the slime from being sticky. Again, you can add more if you need to. Stir together.

Scented Pumpkin Guts Slime Recipe

The slime will begin to form instantly (how cool right?!) Knead the slime for a few minutes.

Scented Pumpkin Guts Slime Recipe

Football Stadium Sugar Cookies

Easy Football Stadium Cookies

I love several things in life.




Easy Football Stadium Cookies

But I really have a love for cookies and football. And these Easy Football Stadium Cookies are a perfect mix of two of my favorite things!

The sugar cookies are actually my Grandma’s recipe. Ok, well, they are a friend of my Grandma’s (shout out to Kathy! Woop! Woop!) but my Grandma did write it on an index card and include in her cookbook of favorite recipes. So I feel like it kind of counts. She makes them every Christmas. They are perfect for busting out the cookie cutters with.

Easy Football Stadium Cookies

But today, Grandma’s cookies are getting brought out for fall. I may love cookies, but I’ll be honest. I am not talented in the cookie decorating department. So when I say that these are easy and that even I was able to make them look good, I mean that they are truly, 100% super simple.

I love the little ‘people’ in the stands behind the field goal. And sugar crystals? Those are my favorite! This is essentially the sugar cookie of my dreams. My favorite cookie recipe. My favorite sprinkles. And my favorite sport.

Easy Football Stadium Cookies

Before you start. Here are few recommendations on things you will need to make these Easy Football Stadium Cookies:

  • Baking Mat – If you don’t have some of these yet, please do yourself a favor and get some. They are inexpensive and I promise you that you will use them 1,000,000 times. Don’t believe me on their awesomeness? Check out the thousand+ 5 star reviews.
  • Parchment Paper – You need it. You can’t make these without it. I like to buy the parchment paper that is pre-cut. In the long run it is cheaper. And now I’m spoiled by not having to tear it. I know, first world problems.
  • Sprinkles – The right sprinkles are key. You need the little ball sprinkles to represent all of the fans cheering in the crowd. These sprinkles scream happy, so I’m sure you will use them on everything – ice cream, pretzels, cookies, etc. I consider it an investment. Ok, maybe not, but I really like these! 🙂
  • Green Sugar Crystals – Sometimes I am highly annoyed with how difficult it can be for me to find sprinkles in basic colors at our local stores. And sugar crystals aren’t any different. I try to stock up with the seasons (St. Patrick’s Day or Christmas for green) but sometimes, they just can’t be found. If you can’t find them at your local store, Amazon is (always) a good option.

DIY Unicorn Planters With Magical Cactus Horns

DIY Unicorn Cactus PlantersDIY Unicorn Planters with Magical Cactus Horns

I used to think that unicorns were mythical creatures that were only heard of, but never seen. However lately, they have been taking over our house….primarily our daughter’s room. It’s apparently a unicorn playground. The most recent inhabitants are these sweet unicorn planters…complete with magical cactus horns.

DIY Unicorn Planters with Magical Cactus Horns

Ok, so maybe these unicorns didn’t just appear, but we made them. This was such a fun project! Our daughter was able to create it by herself and there is such a huge variety of ways to decorate them so they are just like real unicorns – magical and unique!

DIY Unicorn Planters with Magical Cactus Horns

Just like you can decorate each pot uniquely, the different cacti, oh sorry, unicorn horns that you can get are also super unique. This was one of our daughter’s favorite parts I think. We went through all of the cactus plants searching for the perfect ones! (And bonus: I’ve heard that cactus plants are hard to kill…which means yay! No green thumb required!)

Want to make your own DIY Unicorn Planter? Here’s how!

DIY Unicorn Planters with Magical Cactus Horns

DIY Unicorn Planter Supplies:

DIY Unicorn Planters with Magical Cactus Horns

DIY Unicorn Planter Instructions:

DIY Unicorn Planters with Magical Cactus Horns

Paint your pot and base white. While the paint is still dry, sprinkle it with glitter. Paint dries SUPER fast on terra cotta so you will have to work in small sections. Once everything is glittered, spray with your sealer if you are using one. Set aside until it is dry.

The fun part! Decide how you are going to decorate.

We did one with just tulle and one with tulle and flowers.

If you are going to use flowers, smaller flowers are the easiest to work with!

Rhinestones would be another fun idea to try! Hot glue your decorations on.

Using a fine tip brush, paint on the unicorn’s eyes and lashes. Cut out two ear shapes of white foam. Out of the pink foam, cut out two inner ears and glue to the center of the white foam ears.

DIY Unicorn Planters with Magical Cactus Horns

Hot glue your ears to the inside of the pot where desired.

DIY Unicorn Planters with Magical Cactus Horns

Once the glue is dry, fill the pot with potting soil and add your cactus horn. Be careful! Don’t get poked!

Ta da! Aren’t they adorable? Super magical!

St. Patrick’s Day Decoration Craft – Table Runner

Burlap and Lace St.Patricks Day Runner

I’ve been busy getting ready for St. Patrick’s Day. I have to say, I’m a little disappointed in the stores. I’ve been having some trouble finding cute decorations. THIS girl MUST decorate for all of the holidays!! Not to worry I probably would have paid big bucks for this runner at the store. And it was really inexpensive to make. And took a whole 10 minutes. Even if you are a beginner sewer this is a project for you! And if you aren’t a sewer? I bet you could use some iron on tape. 🙂

You will need:

St. Patrick’s Day Burlap Fabric in a length that will fit your table (I got mine at Joann Fabrics – get it online here for $4.99 a yard!)

Green Lace (again I got mine at Joann Fabrics!)


Green Thread

I used a side table so the width of the words was perfect on my fabric. I purchased 2 yards and was able to get enough to make 3 runners! I purchased 1 1/2 yards of green lace and used it all on this one runner. The more layers you want the more lace you will need!

pin it2

Pin the sides up. Like I said, I used the words on my fabric as a guide. They were the perfect width!

pin it

Pin up the bottom! That way no rough edges hanging out. Then just sew all the way around.

lace layers

Then starting with the bottom layer, sew a strip of lace on.

Burlap and Lace St.Patricks Day Runner

Layer the lace on!

Burlap and Lace St.Patricks Day Runner

See I told you it was EASY!!


I kind of love it.

Burlap and Lace St.Patricks Day Runner

Ok. I really love it.

Burlap and Lace St.Patricks Day Runner

Subway art + burlap + lace … what is honestly not to love?

Our favorite Easter Traditions:


My Mom always made the ‘lambie cake’ for Easter every year. She has this cake mold shaped like a lamb and she always decorated it up to look so cute every year. I’m not that ambitious but I love a sweet treat for the kids and we have fun filling and hiding baskets and eggs. I think I get a bigger kick out of finding good hiding spots than they do out of finding them!

– Lindsay is the mom of 2 and author of See Mom Click. She shares great deals, Disney happenings and recipes. You can follow her on Twitter here!

Easter was always one of my favorite holidays growing up. My dad would always buy about 10 large chocolate bunnies and hide them around our living room. (Why so many? So he could eat them, too! Haha) After we had our 9am chocolate fix, we’d head to church and then to my grandparent’s house for turkey dinner with all the fixings. Every year it was the same and I loved it. We’re still developing our traditions with my son Sam, but Easter is becoming one of his favorites.

We always had Easter Egg hunts at my grandma and papaw’s house when I was little. Now that I have my own family, we still get together every year with our big ole’ family and let the littles hunt eggs. They always have such a great time. My addiction to those Cadbury Creme Filled Eggs comes into full on and I always have to keep a stash hidden. Shhhhh!!!

I love Easter. It’s an important day for us and what it symbolizes. We try to do something really fun each year. Last year for the older kids we put glow sticks in the eggs and let them hunt them after dark. They loved that! It’s a wonderful day filled with faith, friends, family and of course, a trip from the Easter Bunny!

Then, once the kids find the eggs they can take the puzzle pieces out and put the puzzle together. If the puzzle is complete, they have found all the eggs!
