When the weather outside is frightful, keep the kids busy indoors with this oozy snow-inspired slime that will never melt!

A big thank you to our sitter, Melissa G., for sending us this awesome activity! (If you have an activity you love to do with the kiddos, email it to onlinemarketing@sittercity.com so we can feature it on our blog!)

What You’ll Need:

  • 2 cups white school glue
  • Glitter (iridescent works best)
  • Warm water
  • 3/4 tsp. borax
  • Peppermint extract (optional)



  1. Mix 2 cups white school glue with 1 1/2 cups warm water.
  2. Add glitter (as much or little as you’d like) and a few drops of peppermint extract (optional) to mixture.
  3. In a separate bowl combine 3/4 tsp. of borax with 1 1/3 cups warm water.
  4. Combine ingredients from both bowls and mix well (this takes about five minutes).
