In the post, we are sharing How to Make Melting Snowman Slime For Christmas. Slime is one of our favorite scientific activities and we love to make it seasonal or on the holiday theme whenever we can! 

This fluffy snowman slide is a perfect winter science activity for children! We’ll even show you how to transform your slimy snow into a snowman (regular and melted!). Children will love to play with this fuzzy slime. It would also be great to do a winter sensory activity.

Children can enjoy transforming their downy snowman into an ordinary or melted snowman! They may stretch the clay and melt a snowman. If you mix the slime, the bud of the snowman and the gooey eyes will also mix. However, you can remove the buttons and rebuild the face once you find all the pieces!

We like how simple slimy fluff is to do! Our recipe has been developed to make it a little more stretchy than other fluffy slime recipes you can try. 

We add additional water to help you. If you want it less stretchable, you can jump the water.

Fluffy slime is pretty sticky to do. When you mix and knead, it will be very sticky at the beginning – and this is normal! It takes a lot of kneading to get the consistency that makes it less sticky.

What to Need

  •  2/3 Cup of Elmer’s White Glue
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1/4 Cup Water
  • 2 Cups Shaving Cream
  • 2 Tablespoons Contact Lens Solution (Must contain boric acid and sodium)
  • Black cardstock and red glitter paper for the hat
  • Small black buttons
  • Googly eyes
  • Orange felt 

How To Make Melting Snowman Slime (step by step)

Put your white glue in the bowl. Then add your baking soda and water and combine.

Add shaving cream and blend.

Now quickly add your contact solution.

We like to add in 1 tbsp and then stir. Add the rest of the soup spoon and continue to mix. Once the slime moves away from the bowl, take it out of the bowl and knead for 10 minutes. The mud will be very sticky when you knead – which is normal!

Make that snowman of yours!  Now you’re done, take your snowman and build your snowman! You can cut out the snowman’s nose with orange felt or foam wrap. Then add black buttons for the mouth and gooey eyes for the eyes.

You can create a snowman hat by cutting the hat off from black cardboard, then add a strip of red glittery paper.

Now you can play with your mud and make it a melted snowman if you want! Your snowman slime should last at least a week if stored properly (see storage details above in the note).

Yay! We have made our Melting Snowman Slime. So when you’re making this with your kids? We would love to hear your thoughts down below in the comment section. If you like this activity then don’t forget to share it with your friends and family.
