My heart is beating out of my chest because this Grinch Slime turned out EXACTLY like I had imagined it.
Sometimes I get these insane ideas and I truly have no idea how to execute it. That is where my husband comes into play.
My husband is great at helping take my crazy insane idea and turn it into a reality.
That’s what happened here.
I won’t lie, we tried several different recipes and different heart beads with this slime before we got it right.
I wanted it to be glittery (because it’s more fun, right?) and I wanted it to be Grinch Green and on the third try we made it happen.
*Queue the happy music*
This slime turned out perfect and is the stretchy, moldable slime you’d expect. Plus, it’s perfect for Christmas time.
Hey, there’s another idea – make this slime then put it in some cute heart shaped containers (like below) for gift giving!
What you need to make Grinch Slime:
- Clear School Glue
- Neon Green Food Coloring
- Neon Green Glitter
- Red Plastic Hearts
- Mixing Bowls
- Spoon or Stirring Stick
- Container to Store Leftover Slime In
How to make Grinch Slime:
First things first, I want to point out that although there is a recipe and measurements for the Borax, you should know that you may not use the entire Borax solution to make your slime. Slime is one of those tricky crafts. The final amount you add depends on a variety of factors including how humid or dry the area you live in is. So, add your borax solution slowly.
Once you know that, it’s time to get going. First, mix your Borax and water into a small bowl until the water turns clear and is no longer foggy. Set aside.
Now, pour your entire bottle of clear glue into a bowl.
Next, add 2-3 drops of the neon green food coloring and add some of your neon glitter.
This next part is the IMPORTANT one. Slowly add your Borax solution into the glue mixture. Add a little at a time and stir. Keep doing this until the slime does not stick to the sides of the bowl anymore. If you don’t use all of the Borax solution, that is entirely okay.
Take the slime out of the bowl and knead until it doesn’t feel sticky and has good stretch to it.
Now add your plastic hearts and your slime is now ready for play!
Store any leftover slime in an airtight container for future play.
Hope you enjoy this craft as much as we do!
