Fun Winter Themed Slime Play!

Winter is the season that happens in the months of December to March in the northern hemisphere, and from June to September in the southern hemisphere.

It’s when that part of the world is the farthest away from the sun and has less sunlight and heat. So it’s characterized by shorter days, longer nights, and colder temperatures. In some areas, this means snow!

Slime is a unique substance that isn’t liquid or solid but acts like both. That makes it ideal for playing with! Push hard on it quickly, and it will feel like a solid block or ball. But relax your hand and watch it drip through your fingers!

It’s perfect for talking about solids and liquids and comparing the states of matter. In winter, you can clearly see all three states of water — solid ice, liquid water as it melts, and the steamy water vapor that comes off hot drinks! Slime can help demonstrate the properties of liquids and solids without having to get cold.

For this recipe, you’ll need our standard list of slime ingredients: PVC glue (we recommend Elmer’s Glue), water, contact lens solution (containing boric acid), and baking soda.

To make it stand out, we added some gorgeous blue and white snowflake glitter.

It’s the combination of boric acid, glue, and baking soda that creates the squishy-solid slime features. The chemical reactions between the boric acid and the baking soda change the molecules in the glue so that they aren’t sticky, but stretchy.

Winter Slime Ingredients

Slime Directions

First, open the bottle of glue and pour it into a medium-sized bowl. Add warm water to the bottle and recap. Shake it well to get the last of the glue off the bottle, and add it to the glue in the bowl.

Use a fork to stir the glue and water together. Add baking soda and contact lens solution then stir well for at least 2 minutes.

Test your slime. If it’s too sticky, you need more contact lens solution. If it’s too stiff, you need more water. Keep stirring until the slime forms a ball. Remove from bowl and knead well, for at least 2 minutes. If the slime is still sticky, add a little more contact lens solution.

If it’s still too stiff, add more water. Once the slime is stretchy and not sticky, sprinkle the glitter on your surface. Knead the slime in the glitter, until the glitter is spread throughout the slime.
