The elves in our Slime Lab dreamt up a new slime recipes for winter fun called Cozy Christmas Slime. It’s so easy to make, stretches like crazy, and the texture is irresistible. The holidays are a wonderful time for making, crafting, and keeping little hands active with creativity. If you’re looking for a Christmas slime recipe, this is for you…

Cozy Christmas Slime

The Christmas Slime is made cozy with the soft texture of of Baker’s Twine. Any color will work, and the common red and white baker’s twine would give this a sweet candy cane effect. If you have other yarn at home, give that a try!

Contact Solution with boric acid as an ingredient – 2 tablespoons (30 ml) (<< this brand works!)

Baker’s Twine

Scissors – this is my favorite brand for kids, and they make an excellent left-handed version
