This is by far my favorite slime of the three we are sharing today.  It smells so wonderful and lends itself to all sorts of play.

  • 2 cups of white school glue

You can also add clove and nutmeg.  We used cinnamon and ginger.  We used a hefty amount of both, but I used a lot more cinnamon just because I love the smell.  You don't need a lot of spice to scent the slime, but I wanted the spices to also color the slime.  Once the spices are mixed in add the water and mix

In a second bowl combine
  • 3/4 teaspoons of borax
  • 1 & 1/3 cups of very warm water
Once the ingredients of the second bowl are mixed add it to the bowl with the glue.  Use your hands to mix all ingredients.  As you are mixing the slime will form

There will be residual water left over in the bowl.  That is not needed and can be tossed.   Give kids buttons so they can make OOZING and super stretchy gingerbread men

Rosie and Jewel LOVED this!  They loved creating their slimy gingerbread people and then stretching them out.  The stretching changed their facial expressions which the girls thought was so funny.  They also loved just playing with the slime itself.  This would make a super cute stocking stuffer- a bit of gingerbread slime and some buttons.
