Kitchen Science: Glitter Christmas Slime Recipe

We’re mixing up some festive Christmas slime full of glitter! Slime makes a great sensory play tool for kids of all ages plus they love mixing the ingredients together. The ingredients for slime start off as appearing as a liquid but once the chemicals in the glue react to those in the contact solution they form slime. The texture is smooth and pliable and can be kept for weeks in an airtight container.

My kids and their friends love playing with slime but it can get messy. Here are some tips for keeping your slime making zone (almost) mess-free:

  • Store all slime ingredients in a plastic tub
  • Use inexpensive bowls or plastic cups and wooden craft sticks to mix the slime
  • Store slime in sealed plastic containers or Ziploc bags in a plastic bin.
  • Do not make or play with the slime in areas where slime ingredients may spill on carpet or upholstery.
