Want a fun Christmas craft idea for winter break?

Let the kids make some beautiful 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.

Hip Tips: 

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

Directions

1

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

2

Mix in water and baking soda.

3

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.

4

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

Jiggly Christmas slime fun!

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

    Cannot wait to make this slime with my daughter! PS: We love Plant Therapy essential oils!!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Yay! Yes they are great 👍

    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

      • Kim

        Patti, according to the tips above you could use any contact solution with boric acid and sodium borate. This looks like it should include some saline solutions; Bausch & Lomb makes a Sensitive Eyes Saline (it comes in a 2 pk for $4.88) that falls in this category. Happy slime making!!

  5. Lauren

    Is this recipe enough for two kids to split and have enough to play with? Looking for some fun Christmas activities to keep 9 little cousins occupied, so trying to figure out how many times to multiply the recipe. 🎅

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      For two – yes. Any more kids I’d make more 👍
