Christmas Tree Slime

Want a fun holiday craft idea?

Let the kids make some Christmas tree-inspired slime! The best part, this version smells like Christmas trees! 🎄My kids are still fascinated by slime crafts, and this one is super fun and festive! Plus, it’s easy to mix up using just a few supplies.

While you could use white glue, I used clear glue in this batch so that the fun Christmas confetti can show up. Also, you can find Christmas confetti online and at most craft stores, but I found mine in the Target dollar section! So fun.

Make Christmas Tree Slime – slime ingredients

We decided to scent our slime with a nice Christmas Tree essential oil blend. Smells so great, although completely optional. I think peppermint oil would smell nice, too.

There are a few ways to make slime, but we like using the contact solution. Make sure the brand you use contains boric acid and sodium borate so it’ll work as an activator (I use this Blink brand). For an alternative, try using 1/2 cup of liquid starch like Stay-Flo instead of contact solution and baking soda.

DIY Christmas Slime

Supplies Needed:

Directions:

  • 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 will form right away 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.

Note: Slime can last for weeks stored in a tightly covered container. However, I’d toss if it gets moldy or starts to smell.

Jiggly Christmas slime fun!

Oh my goodness, this scented slime is so cool! We loved playing with it, and what a fun winter break activity idea. Put on some holiday tunes, and whip up a batch of stretchy, satisfying slime to play with.

    Nope…my kids are grounded from slime for awhile. I have little bits of blue slime stuck/dried on pretty much everything we own from a recent birthday that included a big bucket of neon blue as a gift. The Christmas slime is so neat so I hope they don’t accidently see this post, lol.

      I banned silly putty for a similar reason. On three separate occasions, my son almost ruined two pairs of pants and one of his favorite stuffed animals. Fortunately, I was able to save all three items, but not without a lot of blood, sweat, and tears. We were a silly putty free house for almost two years before I finally gave in.

    Do you think the Christmas trees will be sharp on the edges? Very cool idea!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      We didn’t have that experience – and played with it for quite awhile.,.but maybe something to consider. Can use green glitter instead? Or beads?

    We made this slime today, with a minor adjustment. The only essential oil I had on hand was lavender with tea tree oil. (We’ll stay calm and keep the lice away!) I was pleasantly surprised to discover that the Equate brand contact solution, that was only $2.97 a bottle, works just as well as the name brand stuff. No more wasting my good contact solution for slime! Now, if only Michael’s would accept my coupons for the giant bottle of clear Elmer’s glue, we would be all set.

    • Patti

      Sarah, can you post a picture of what the Equate brand of contact solution looks like? I was in Walmart earlier but could not figure out which Equate brand to buy, as there was several. Thanks. pattalee2003@yahoo.com
