Christmas is a good time to whip up slime inspired by the holidays! Today, let’s make Christmas Tree Slime

Do it to give or get the kids involved by having them add Christmas glitter to create a super fun slime experience! This Christmas Tree Slime recipe could not be easier and you can easily add glitter or Christmas glitter to make it a perfect sensorial activity for Christmas! S

Children will love stretching and making their own Christmas tree with this easy-to-make homemade recipe. Add sensory items adapted to children like mini ornaments, glitter, and confetti to this mud. You can even make a paper pylon for kids to wrap the mud around and create a 3D mud tree!

We changed the mud into the shape of a Christmas tree and added a few sticks at the bottom to make it look like a Christmas tree.

We love how easily this homemade slime is made! This is the perfect recipe for Christmas mud if you are looking for something that is not too dirty. Avoid food coloring if you want to keep your hands clean and use large spangles to avoid the mess that sometimes sparkles bring.

What you need

  • 1 Bottle of Elmer’s Green Glitter Glue (6 oz)
  • Red and green sequins and star confetti 
  • Green Food Coloring – a few drops (optional)
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1½ TBSP of Contact lens solution – must contain boric acid and sodium borate 
  • 2 TBSP of water

Quick Note: Adults just need to make the slime and handle all the chemicals. Do not substitute any ingredients in our clay recipes. If you have sensitive skin, wear gloves while playing with the clay. Keep your hands clean before and after use. If you notice irritation of the skin immediately stop using. 

How to Make Christmas Tree Slime (step by step)

Firstly, add your bottle of green glitter glue to a bowl.

Combine the baking soda and water and mix.

Add glitter, glitter, and stars to your slime.

Note: don’t add too many sparkling stars for little children as they can be quite sharp and pointed to the touch.  We recommend that you only use some of them to make your Christmas tree. They may be added to the clay without mixing.

Now slowly add the contact lens solution.

Remember: your contact lens solution must contain boric acid or your slime will not develop. Add 1/2 tsp at a time and combine.

Knead and stir carefully before adding more than you want to add too much or your clay will become too hard. 

You may not need the total, so take that step slowly. If you find the clay still too sticky, add only 1/2 teaspoon more at a time. More often than not, if you continue to knead your slime, it will become less sticky.

Now it’s time for your slime. Stretch them out and turn them into Christmas trees!

Your Christmas tree is ready to be played or whatever you want to. If you like this easy slime craft, do give a share and we would love to hear your thoughts down below in the comment section.
