This snow slime is icy cold to the touch and sparkly white, making it a sure win as far as snow play goes with the little ones.  Kids can make OOZING snowmen and stretch and pull this faux snow in ways the real stuff could never allow.  This is a simple recipe for play, too........... which mama always loves.

Snow Slime Recipe (affiliate links provided)
  • 2 cups of white school glue (you could also use silver glitter glue)
  • 1 & 1/2 cups of very warm water
  • Iridescent glitter
  • Optional: a few drops of peppermint extract to give the snow slime a fresh and clean scent

                     Combine in a small bowl

 In a second bowl combine
  • 3/4 teaspoons of borax
  • 1 & 1/3 cups very warm water
Mix the ingredients of both bowls well and then combine both bowls.  Mix the ingredients with your hands for a few minutes.  As the ingredients are mixed the snow slime will form

Rosie and Jewel both love this slime!

It is sparkly and OOZY and OH SO FUN

Make it COLD by storing it in a zip seal bag in the fridge before and after play.  The cold feel of the slime makes it unique from any other slime we have made.   Nothing like cold snow slime that sparkles as it OOZES

Extend the play:  Give kids snowman craft foam shapes so they can make OOZING snowmen.  Snowflake cookie cutters are also lots of fun and allow kids to make melting snowflakes.  

Snow slime is sure to delight the kids this Winter and is such a FUN way to "PLAY with snow"
