Snow Slime!

Were you dreaming of a White Christmas but experienced a bitterly cold one instead? Are you dreading the snow and slush that the rest of this winter may have in store for us? Do you wish you could pick up a cloud and squish it?

Well, on December 28, 2022, Miss Hannah held a “Snow Slime” program where kids ages 7-12 were invited to create fluffy, glittery slime that didn’t freeze their fingers! 10 kids registered and came to the program on the Wednesday of school vacation week and followed instructions together, ultimately producing an iridescent white slime that felt much softer than your typical snowball. The recipe was adapted from this website: and a clear glitter powder was added to the ingredients to give it the appearance of sun reflecting off of freshly fallen snow.

Everyone left with some snow slime to play with at home. While this “snow” can’t be used in a snowball fight (throwing slime is a messy business), it also doesn’t require shoveling or mittens!

See the instructions below to make your own Snow Slime, and keep an eye on the calendar for upcoming programs. Let us know if you’d be interested in seeing more slime!

First, you'll need the following ingredients:

  • 1/3 cup of Elmer’s White Glue 

  • 1/4 teaspoon Baking Soda 

  • 2 tablespoons Water 

  • a dash of glitter

  • 1 cup Shaving Cream (NOT gel, it must be CREAM)

  • 2 & 1/4 teaspoons Contact Lens Solution (including boric acid and sodium borate)

Now for the instructions:

  • Pour your white glue into a bowl. 

  • Add your baking soda and water, then mix. 

  • Add glitter as desired, then mix. 

  • Add your shaving cream and mix. 

  • Slowly mix in your contact solution.

  • *If the slime is too sticky, add more contact solution. You can also put some contact solution on your hands to keep the slime from sticking to them while you play with it.
