Slime Party for Kids is Guaranteed Gross Good Time

This gooey theme is a perfect pick for kids who love all things icky and disgusting. Get tips and ideas on invitations, activities, food and more!

Now, let the slime games begin! With your camera ready, have guests stretch their slime out to see who can make the longest snake. Then, measure the slime by having each guest attach it to the end of his or her nose (make sure to snap some pictures!). The person with the longest slime "boogie" wins.

You can also do silly contests – like, how long will the slime stay on the end of your nose? Or do relays where guests have to pass their slime on to the next person as a sort of "baton" toss.

Refreshments

Make an icky smorgasbord for your guests using everyday ingredients. To create "eyeball" pizzas, purchase bite-sized pitas, pizza sauce, grated mozzarella cheese and sliced olives at the grocery store. Smooth a small amount of sauce, sprinkle with cheese and add a sliced olive in the center for the "eye." Bake in the oven at 375 degrees just until the cheese melts.

Leave out bowls of various foods and label each with appropriately gross names. For example, dub a bowl of spaghetti "worms" and raisins "bugs." Once your child gets the idea that everyday foods can become gross party food simply with a new name, he'll probably have all sorts of ideas, too! Make sure your guests get in on the joke by serving them as they go through the buffet line. Ask them, "Would you like worms and bugs? Or just eyeballs today?"

For the cake, come up with your own gross-out idea or try one of these: Bake a chocolate cake in a Bundt pan according to the package directions. Once the cake has cooled, you can add disgusting ingredients in the middle. Fill the center halfway with chocolate pudding, for instance, and the rest of the way with crushed Oreos (which will look like potting soil). Add a plastic flower into the "soil" and gummy worms along the edges. Or, use a yellow cake mix (again made in a Bundt pan) and drizzle green frosting along the edges once the cake has cooled.

To make an easy frosting, mix powdered sugar, a small amount of milk and green food coloring until you get the right consistency. To give this cake even more goo, mix up green Jell-O. Once that's set, add it in globs into the center of the frosted Bundt cake.

For more adventurous bakers, whip up a yellow cake in a 9-by-13-inch pan. After the cake has cooled, turn it out onto a cutting board. Cut the cake into the shape of a nose. Frost with vanilla frosting tinted skin-toned with food coloring. Then add globs of green Jell-O coming out of the nostril for a truly gross, kid-pleasing cake. (Your candles will, of course, be pimples!)

Favors

Let your guests take home their baggies of slime as favors. Or, you can create slime beforehand and send them home with a bigger batch. For sweets, fill baggies with gummy worms or gummy bugs.

After the party, send guests thank yous for attending by attaching a photo printout of the slime-stretching contest along with the note.
