Winter is upon us, which means my daughter will most likely be pretending to be a real live Elsa here pretty soon... For those of you who don't get snow or are looking for a much warmer option than playing out in the cold, we've been working on creating some Frozen Snow Slime with Elmer's for you!
Elmer's School Glue
Glitter - I used the white glitter from the Elmer's CraftBond Glitter & Glue Set
Small Black Buttons
Snowman Accessories (I found mine at Hobby Lobby)
8 oz Mason Jars
Printable Labels (download available at the end of post)
Frozen Snow Slime Recipe
4 4oz Elmer's School Glue
1 1/2 cup hot water (or use 3 glue bottles)
Empty the glue bottles into a large mixing bowl. Fill three of the empty glue containers with hot water, then place the lid on and shake vigorously. Pour the water into the bowl. This way, you can get any excess glue out of the bottles! Stir the mixture until the water and glue are combined. You can also add glitter to your mixture if you'd like a sparkly snow!
1 1/3 cup hot water
3/4 teaspoon Borax
In a small bowl or glass measuring cup, add the hot water then the Borax. Mix together until the Borax has completely dissolved.
Now, for the fun part!! Slowly pour the Borax mixture into the large bowl with the glue. Stir the mixture until it starts to thicken. Now, dig your hands in and knead, stir, and squish until the water is absorbed and you have the perfect slime.
The slime is fun to squish your hands in, rip apart, mold and watch it melt. Adding things like buttons, plastic confetti, and more into frozen snow slime just makes it more entertaining! For a little more snow-like feel, place the slime in the refrigerator for about 10 minutes.
Another reason we call this "Frozen" Snow Slime is because it's the perfect way to play with Frozen figures! Elsa can create the snow for everyone, and kids can reenact their favorite scenes or create their own stories with their favorite Frozen characters!! The figures we found are plastic and washable, so they are a super fun accessory to the snow slime!
My daughter has spent all afternoon building snowmen using buttons, beads, and a little wooden carrot nose. It was so fun watching her build snowmen in every shape and size, with all kinds of faces. Their imagination is really the limit!
