DIY Christmas Slime




Using a spoon, mix glue with essential oil and confetti.


Mix in water and baking soda.


Mix in the contact solution as an activator. You’ll notice a slime consistency will start to form and become firm. Keep stirring and manipulating the slime. Add additional contact solution if it’s still too sticky.


Eventually, you’ll get a jiggly and fun slime to play with that smells like a Christmas tree. Enjoy!

Tips for creating this Christmas slime recipe:

  • While you could use white glue, I used Elmer’s clear glue in this batch so that the fun Christmas confetti can show through the transparent slime.
  • There are a few ways to make slime, but we like using contact solution. Make sure the brand you use contains boric acid and sodium borate, so it’ll work as an activator. For an alternative, try using 1/2 cup of liquid starch like Stay-Flo instead of contact solution and baking soda.
  • Slime can last for weeks if stored in a tightly covered container. However, I’d toss it if it gets moldy or starts to smell.

    Ours got hard after only a day. We kept it in a sealed container. Any suggestions?

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      My daughter likes to use lotion to make it soft again. Perhaps an unscented variety if it’s scented with pine. Hope that helps.

    We had a mom make this for our kids’ Christmas party at school last year. She bought the clear disposable condiment containers at Dollar Tree and gave each kid a container! Cutest thing ever!

      Oh how fun! Thanks Kaylee!
