If your kids are anything like mine they are eager to play in the snow this Winter. This snow slime recipe is great fun and satisfies that snow play itch while little ones wait in anticipation for that first snow fall.
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 chilled white school glue
(you could also use silver glitter glue)
- 1 & 1/2 cups of very warm water
- 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 chilled borax
- 1 & 1/3 cups very warm water
Mix the ingredients of both bowls well, and then combine both bowls and mix
After the initial mixing you will want to dive in & mix the ingredients with your hands for a few minutes. As the ingredients are mixed the snow slime will begin to form
Once the slime is good and mixed you can add glitter to make the snow slime sparkle. I recommend using iridescent glitter
Make it COLD by using chilled ingredients. I placed my glue and borax in the fridge overnight. Make the slime even colder 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. There is nothing like cold snow slime that sparkles as it oozes
Icy cold, sparkly, OOZY and OH SO FUN!
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"
Note: Borax can be hard to find in stores. If you have trouble finding it you can get it on Amazon here. This is the iridescent glitter that we used.
