Christmas Slime Recipe

When I say that my girls love slime, that is quite the understatement. They’ve been collecting supplies for months now, and the obsession doesn’t seem to be wearing down. They’ve tried all the recipes, and love to experiment with different slime ingredients. When I suggested we make a Christmas slime recipe, they were pretty excited about what that actually might entail. Of course this slime recipe doesn’t HAVE to be “Christmas-y”, just change colors to whatever you love.

We found some candy cane beads and buttons at Hobby Lobby. I looked on Amazon, and found a few as well, I’ll link below. We also got some red and green glitter, and it was really funny to see how the two colors, that are the same size, separated when we let the slime sit for a few hours. We put a TON of glitter in one Christmas slime that we made, but then just a little bit in another one we crafted. You get to decide how much glitter to put in!


My girls love texture, so they liked the beads. They’ve used slime floam in the past before. If you aren’t sure what floam is, I’ll also link it below, along with anything you might need to make any slime recipe.

My girls are also excited to gift slime to friends, so we showed how we packaged it up at the end of the video we made. I’ve also got lots of Christmas gift tags you can print for free on my site.

    Stir and knead and stir and let it sit to gell more. If it feels too sticky, add more liquid starch.


Here is the fun little video we made that shows (QUICKLY) how we made the slime.


Here are a few ingredients to get your slime recipe needs started. The gallon glue is NOT in the recipe above, but in different slime recipes, and my daughters use it a bunch.

There are many factors that separate a trending brand from other non-trending one sand one of those factors is the presentation of your product. Presentation of a product creates a perception in the customer’s mind, if your product looks good people tend to try it more.
