What to Do
Begin by pouring 1/2 cup of water and 1/2 cup of white glue into your mixing bowl. Mix well.
Next, add in your glitter and several drops of essential oil (we used 12 drops). Mix well.
Now, add in 1/2 cup of liquid starch and mix well.
After a minute or so of mixing (when it starts to clump up), you can mix it in your hands.
It takes about 5-10 minutes to really begin to look like slime.
Be patient – keep working it and before you know it, you’ll have the perfect snow slime!
This snow slime smelled SO good! The kids played with it for hours and I’ll admit, I had fun playing with it too. It’s such a great sensory activity.
The kids had fun using cookie cutters and silicone molds with their snow slime. I added in a few sparkly gems for fun too. You could also add in a few arctic animals for the kids to play with too.
We’ve purchased a few different sets of toobs over the years and they’ve definitely been worth the investment.
Remember when we used them in our arctic playdough set?
The kids love using the figurines in playdough, slime, and in with play silks. Such a great toy!
