Today, we are sharing three simple and fun slime recipes that are perfect for the holiday season.
Perhaps your kids will want to try one, or, if your kids are anything like my kids they might just want to try them all!  This candy cane slime was one of Rosie and Jewel's favorites last year.

Slime makes a great holiday party favor or Christmas stocking stuffer. My girls delighted in finding swirled candy cane slime in their stocking last year. Are you ready to make your own?

Recipe
You will first make a large batch of white peppermint slime and then divide it into two bowls.

  • We used roughly 1&1/2 cups of starch, and that gave us the perfect consistency.
  • Remove the slime from the bowl and knead it with clean, dry hands.  After a bit of kneading you will have the perfect peppermint slime!

Having trouble?  See our troubleshooting tips at the end of the post.

Next Steps:
  • Divide the slime into two bowls.  Set one bowl aside.  Add several drops of red food coloring to the second bowl and mix until the desired color is achieved.

  • Add glitter if desired.
  • Now, combine the two slimes together.
My girls had a blast swirling the two slimes to make awesome, candy cane effects.

Tips & Storage:
  • Store your slime in an airtight container between play times, and it can be used again and again!
  • Liquid starch can be hard to find in stores; we buy our liquid starch on Amazon here.
  • Buying white glue in bulk is a great idea if you are making slime.  We buy our glue in bulk on Amazon here.
Troubleshooting:
  • Is your slime too sticky?  Add a little more starch and knead.  
  • Is your slime too rubbery?  OOPS!  You added too much starch.  No biggie.  Just add a little glue to your slime and knead it in!
This is such a fun slime and smells just like candy canes. As kids play the colors will eventually blend together, but that does not take away from the fun at all. Rosie and Jewel really love this slime!
