You need a solution for your kids’ boredom. You just want 5 minutes to go to the bathroom by yourself. Or not hear anymore whining.
You need to make slime. Actually you need to take that one step further and make melted snowman slime.
Trust me. Slime is the answer.
It’s great for rainy days. Cranky kids. Sick days. Party favors. Play dates. <–You get the idea. It’s awesome.
With 3 young kids at home I am always on the lookout for anything easy and fun. I needed a simple party favor idea for my son’s class party next month and melted snowman slime came to mind. I knew my kids love to make and play with it and other parents would be happy to be taking home a boredom buster instead of more candy!
My kids love simple science so they jumped in to help. Making melted snowman slime is a great simple science experiment for kids. Once we made it, the kids could not wait to play with it…looks like I will be making more slime for the party so they can keep this batch.
Melted Snowman Slime Recipe
- white glue – 7.625 fl oz bottle
- liquid starch
- silver glitter
- small round plastic containers – I got mine at the dollar store
- black and orange Sharpie marker
How to Make Snowman Slime
I used one bottle of glue but to make more slime you can just double or triple the recipe. The kids emptied the white glue into a bowl. I then added about a cup of liquid starch. I do not measure the starch anymore I just add it to the glue until you get a slimy but not too sticky texture.
Once we mixed the glue and starch well with our hands the kids added silver glitter! We mixed it a little more to mix in the glitter. Now we had melted snowman slime. You can also add your favorite scented essential oils to slime for a fun scented play recipe. I forgot it in this batch but I might add peppermint to our next one.
Melted Snowman Slime Party Favors and Valentines
These small plastic containers from the dollar store are perfect for party favors or valentines. Just take the black and orange sharpie marker and draw on a nose, eyes, and a mouth.
If you want to turn these into snowman slime valentines just have your kids sign their names on the back!
If they like to make their own valentines and you can even cut a bunch of carrot shapes from orange foam or construction paper. Then they can glue them on and add the eyes and mouth with a permanent marker!
This is a great “busy” activity for kids. My kids loved squeezing and stretching the slime in their hands. They added the snowman face to the top of the “melted snow” to make their melted snowman.
Don’t you just love simple and easy ideas like this? Your kids will enjoy the melted snowman slime as much as mine did–make it today!
