BEST HOLIDAY SLIMES FOR CHRISTMAS!
HOLIDAY THEME CHRISTMAS SLIME AND MORE
Tis the season for loads of Christmas slime ideas! Over the last, few years we have become fascinated with making slime! Slime for all occasions, themes, seasons, and holidays is really our specialty. The colors, smells, and traditions of each holiday can really come alive in your slime, especially Christmas, Hanukkah, and New Years!
At first, I thought making slime was going to be super hard, and that I would never be able to get right. But then I tried it and loved it. Of course, there was trial and error involved, but we were committed to making slime as easy as possible. Then we couldn’t stop! Plus, I loved the slime science aspect!
HOW TO MAKE HOLIDAY SLIME
Below you will find the links to all our BEST holiday slime recipes. You will find all types of neat slimes to make with the kiddos including a scented gingerbread slime which is my favorite (NO tasting)! There are so many wonderful Christmas slime themes you can recreate with slime from Rudolph, Santa, and the Grinch to candy canes and gingerbread men!
The base for any of these slime recipes below is one of the common slime activators which are saline solution and baking soda, borax powder, or liquid starch.

STORING YOUR HOLIDAY SLIME
Slime lasts quite a while! I get a lot of questions regarding how I store my slime. We use reusable containers in either plastic or glass. Make sure to keep your slime clean and it will last for several weeks.
If you want to send kids home with a bit of slime from a camp, party, or classroom project, I would suggest packages of reusable containers from the dollar store or grocery store or even Amazon. For large groups, we have used condiment containers as seen here.
