I don’t know about you, but I can’t hide from the Frozen craze that is sweeping girls and boys and parents alike. Heck, there were days that I would have “Let it go,” on a continuous loop in my brain. My son and nieces LOVE the movie so I decided to whip up a fun batch of slime, Frozen themed!
I used a traditional slime recipe and mixed in some blue food coloring to make a light blue similar to Elsa’s dress in the movie and then went heavy on glitter. It was a hit.
If you don’t have blue food coloring, but have glitter, you can turn this into “Olaf” slime. It’s all about using your imagination here. 😉
And if you’re trying to find some easy stocking stuffers for Christmas, this stores great in a sealed plastic bag. Or turn it into a present with all of the ingredients and supplies to make your own. Put 1/2 teaspoon of Borax in a plastic bag, some glitter in another bag and a bottle of glue. Almost everyone has a box of food coloring in their cupboards, water and a bowl to mix in. Just write out the simple instructions and you’re good to go. Makes such a fun little kid craft/gift to give that’s also inexpensive.
4 ounce bottle of white school glue, like Elmer’s
4 ounces of water (fill empty glue bottle with water to get measurement) plus 1/2 cup of warm water
1/2 teaspoon of Borax Detergent
8-10 drops of blue food coloring
Pour glue into a medium glass bowl. Fill empty bottle with warm water and add to the glue. Stir in food coloring until color is combined. In a cup, add borax and half cup of warm water and stir borax until dissolved. Pour solution into the glue mixture and stir until slime forms into a ball, leaving only water behind. Use your hands to really knead the slime. Drain water and add as much or as little glitter as you would like. Mix it in good. Now have fun with it.
Once done playing with slime, store in a sealed plastic bag.
