Christmas is my family’s favorite time of year! I mean what child doesn’t love Christmas, am I right? The kids countdown months before and look forward to getting our Christmas tree, baking Christmas cookies, and of course Christmas presents

They also love to do lots of fun Christmas activities and Christmas crafts!

Slime Recipes

One of the things that I love most about slime is how great it is for sensory stimulation and fine motor skills! Everything from squishing and pulling, to cutting it out with cookie cutters is great for developing fine motor skills!

And the feel of the slime helps to stimulate the senses, making this a great activity for those with sensory processing disorder. 

As you can see, slime is a great activity for kids of all ages!

Snowman Slime DIY

This snowman slime makes a super cute snowman!

It’s really easy to make yet lots of fun to play with!

First you need to gather your ingredients:

1/2 Cup Clear Glue

2 tsp. Baking Soda

1 Tbsp. Contact Lens Solution (with boric acid in it)

Orange Nose (I cut out a piece of this craft foam sheet in the shape of a triangle)

Googly Eyes

Buttons

After gathering all of your ingredients it’s time to get started!

You can read here to find out how to make the slime, or you can also watch the above video so that you can actually see me mix it up!

Start by adding the clear glue to a bowl.

Now add the baking soda to the glue. Mix it in well. 

The only ingredient left to add is the contact lens solution. You’ll notice that as soon as you start stirring after adding the contact lens solution, that the slime will begin to become slime!

When it reaches the point that you can no longer easily stir the slime, then it’s time to start kneading and squishing it with your hands to completely incorporate the solution into the other ingredients.

And that’s it! Now it’s time to play:) To make a snowman tear the slime into three parts, each one a little larger than the one before it, and roll them into balls. 

Then splat it on the table to look like a snowman, with the smallest piece being on top for his head and the biggest being on the bottom.

Get the googly eyes and press them into the slime. Then add the little foam nose and the buttons. You now have a super cute snowman:)

If you want to add arms you can use actual sticks, or you can improvise like I did and use black bread ties;)

Doesn’t it look cool?! And it feels so squishy! My kids loved playing with it and feeling it squish between their hands!
