Want a fun Christmas craft idea to make at home?

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 creative slime crafts and this one is super fun and festive! Plus, it’s easy to mix up using just a few supplies.

Tips for creating the BEST Christmas slime:

  • 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 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.

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.

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

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