A special thank you goes out to Sony Pictures Home Entertainment for sending my family a Goosebumps 2 Package with Digital Code and Gift Card to entertain my children over Holiday Break. Opinions expressed are that of my own.
As soon as the packages are finished being opened and the toys have been explored, the kiddos are onto looking for the next activity to keep them entertained over winter break.
Well I am happy to share that you can keep them busy with Goosebumps 2 out on Digital December 25th as well as with Gummy Bear Slime and Thumbprint Cookies!
We happened to get an advanced viewing of the film along with a themed package with recipes, science experiment cards, as well as you guessed it, Haribo Gummy Bears.
Now one of those cards happened to be a Gummy Bear Slime and being that my daughter is a fan of anything smooshy and gooey, we had to try that out before we watched the movie.
I had a great time assisting her and watching as this experiment came together. FYI it is sticky, but the best part is that it is edible and tasted YUMMY. If you would like to make this at home with your kids, the directions are below.
Goosebumps Gummy Bear Slime
What you will need:
- Haribo Gummy Bears
- 1/3 Cup of Powdered Sugar
- 1/3 Cup Corn Starch
- Microwave Safe Bowls
- Measuring Cup
This requires adult supervision for the microwave. To get started, first put the preferred amount of Gummy Bears in a Microwave Safe Bowl. We used 6.
Then, combine the Powdered Sugar and Cornstarch in a smaller bowl. Next, microwave the gummy bears for 10 seconds and if not melted repeat another 10 seconds.
Have an adult carefully remove the bowl from the microwave and start to mix in a spoonful at a time of the Powdered Sugar and Cornstarch mix until you achieve the desired consistency.
Remember that this will be warm so make sure it is cooled enough before you pick it up. Then, the Gummy Bear Slime ready to be pulled and stretched!
After all that excitement, it was time to watch Goosebumps 2 and it was such a fun story with adventure, comedy, and of course R.L Stine’s scary characters. All of my children were engaged by the film and really enjoyed it.
After we finished, my daughter and I decided to make Gummy Bear Thumbprint cookies from one of the provided Recipe Cards (her brothers decided they were interested in eating them).
This recipe was so simple to put together, and it was awesome to see how the gummy bears melted in the oven.
All I can say is, I am surprised at all the fun things you can do with Gummy Bears and we will continue to play around with these and other activities over Winter Break.
Check out how to make these Gummy Bear Thumbprint Cookies below!
I also think these activities inspired by Goosebumps 2 would be awesome for an upcoming Noon Year’s Eve Party!
About Goosebumps 2:
