I based this Christmas themed slime on the same recipe as our candy corn slime:
- 2.5 fl oz white glue (or about half a regular bottle)
- 2.5 fl oz liquid starch
- 2-3 drops food colouring
I made three batches, colouring one red, one green, and leaving one white. To the red slime I added some cinnamon powder, to the green slime I added some peppermint essence, and to the white slime I added some loose gold glitter.
We actually didn’t get to play with this the same day that I made it, so the different slimes had slightly melted together. I confess that I wasn’t very precise with my measurements so all three were a slightly different consistency. Luckily, that just adds to the interest.
F spent a long time just pulling it up on a utensil and watching it gloop back down into the dish.
He wasn’t so keen on the cookie cutter being in there so he removed it – rather dramatically!
The slime is just fascinating to pull and play with.
The white plastic spatula that I put out for him to use worked really well, as he could pick up larger amounts of slime.
For once F even put his fingers into it! He wasn’t keen, but at least he tried.
I don’t think I put enough cinnamon powder into this Christmas slime because all we could smell was the mint – but that added a very nice fresh scent to the slime!
Important Note: If you recreate this slime please do not dispose of it down the sink as your plumbing won’t like it!
