Christmas Slime – How to Make Christmas Tree Slime
Kids will love stretching and making their very own “Christmas Tree” with this easy homemade slime recipe. Add in any kid-friendly sensory items like mini ornaments, glitter and confetti to this slime. You can even make a paper cone for kids to wrap the slime around and create a 3D slime tree!
We turned the slime into a Christmas tree shape and added some sticks to the bottom to make it looks like a Christmas tree.
We love how easy this homemade slime is to make! It’s the perfect Christmas slime recipe if you’re looking for something that is not too messy. Skip the food coloring if you want to keep hands clean and use large sequins to avoid the mess that glitter sometimes brings.
Ingredients Needed to Make a Christmas Slime Recipe
– 1 Bottle of Elmer’s Green Glitter Glue (6 oz). Do not substitute with any other brand of glue because the ingredients may not be the same and your slime might not work!
– Green Food Coloring – a few drops (optional)
– 1/2 Teaspoon Baking Soda
– 2 Tablespoons of water
Safety Tips: Adults only should make the slime and handle all chemicals. Do not substitute any ingredients in our slime recipes. If you have sensitive skin, wear gloves while playing with the slime. Always wash hands before and after use. If you notice any skin irritation discontinue use immediately. See the bottom of the post for more safety precautions.

1. First, add your bottle of green glitter glue to a bowl.
2. Add in your baking soda and water and mix.
3. Now add in any sequins, glitter or stars to your slime.
Note: don’t add too many of the glitter stars for little kids as these can be quite pointy and sharp to touch. We would recommend only using a few to make your Christmas tree. You can add them on top of the slime and not mix them in.
4. Now slowly add in your contact lens solution.
Reminder: your contact lens solution should contain boric acid or your slime will not form. Add in a 1/2 teaspoon at a time and mix in.
Knead and mix thoroughly before adding more as you do not want to add too much or your slime will get too hard. You may not need the full amount so take this step slowly. If you find the slime to still be too sticky, add only a 1/2 teaspoon more at a time. Most of the time if you keep kneading your slime it will become less sticky.
Now it’s time to play with your slime. Stretch it and turn it into a Christmas tree!
