Christmas slimes are easy to throw together. Slime – especially peppermint scented slime – is a fun sensory activity on its own. But with this one, we added in some other sights and sounds of Christmas, using ball ornaments and jingle bells!

- 1/2 cup school glue
- 4 tablespoons Liquid Starch
- 1 drop peppermint essential oil
- non-breakable Christmas ornaments or balls, Jingle Bells – anything Christmasy!
Shake the liquid starch, and pour it. Add 1 drop of peppermint essential oil to the liquid starch and mix (This step is for adults). Add the glue to the starch mixture. I keep a plastic container and spoons specifically for making slime (we make a lot of slimes!).
We usually mix a little with the spoons, and then finish up the mixing with our hands – more sensory fun! It looks like it won’t come together, but after a few minutes, it does! If your slime comes out too stringy, add more glue – too sticky, add more liquid starch.
You already have the scent of Christmas in this slime, and it’s fun to add in sights and sounds too – with jingle bells and non-breakable ornaments! We covered the bells and ornaments in the slime and popped them out, decorated the slime with the ornaments.
In general, the slime comes off of whatever we put in it. However, the sequined ornaments we used got really covered and I just threw out a few. I wouldn’t put anything in the slime that you were really attached to!
