My children and I are absolutely giddy over this Christmas slime recipe!

Christmas Slime

Seriously, it’s magnificent for sensory stimulation. I observed my kiddos independently reading while feeling the slime run through their fingers. 

It’s not sticky at all, but it just has this magnificent texture that is truly amazing to me. I love it.

You might have to play with the ingredients a bit to make it the consistency you want.

We used our hands to really mix up the slime. It was truly awesome! We all took turns mixing it up. The kiddos found it interesting how the texture changed into the slime.

I didn’t put in the beads or sequins in for my 2 year old nephew. He had a fun making it into a ball and played with it while siting in his high chair.

We divided the slime into three parts and stored it in baggies for later use. It’s been a week and it’s still keeping the children and me entertained.

It’s a great way to keep the little ones occupied while you are doing your Christmas cards or planning your Christmas planner.

Really! You have to try it. 

If you end up hiding it from your kids, I promise not to judge you or tell them.

Let us know how much you and your children loved the Christmas slime recipe!


  1. When you say sequence, you do mean “sequins,” right? When I first read the list of ingredients, I assumed that you were referring to the order in which to add the ingredients. When I got to the part about you leaving the “sequence” out of your young nephew’s slime, it dawned on me that you were probably referring to sequins, instead. Just verifying, because this is a project that I am eager to try with the little ones! Thanks!

  2. What size bottle of Glue do you use?
