Materials Needed

  • white school glue (chilled)
  • spoon
  • bowl
  • liquid starch
  • foam balls
  • glitter

Slime Starter

To begin, empty two bottles of chilled white school glue into a bowl. Next, to give it some winter flair, add glitter. We chose silver, blue and white to reflect our favorite cold-weather hues, but any and all glitter colors are sure to make the slime pop. Once the glitter has been added, be sure to fully incorporate it into the chilled glue.

Thicken Slime

Adding small amounts at a time, mix 1/2 cup of chilled liquid starch into the slime mixture. Work the liquid starch into the glue thoroughly until the glue mixture begins to lose its tackiness. Using your hands, knead the slime until it has formed into a ball-like shape that can be easily manipulated.

Add Texture

Once the slime has formed and is no longer sticky, add foam balls for texture. Not only do they act as a texture component, but they also look like tiny snowballs! Once all ingredients have been combined, slime away!
