If you’re looking for some fun Christmas activities to do with your kids this year, making slime can be such a fun activity! You can even make a craft day where you make slime and make the jars to go with them. If you love this Santa jar, then you’ll also love our Snowman, Grinch and Rudolph jars you can see here.

We love how simple this jar is to make and it turns this mason jar into such a fun gift idea! Or if you want to keep the slime for yourself, you can still easily make this jar to store your slime in. Storing your slime in an air tight container will help keep it longer. Just keep in mind that any fluffy slime loses its “fluffiness” after a day, but the slime will continue to be fine to play with!

Christmas Slime

If you are planning to give this as a gift and make in advance – we highly recommend you make two batches or consider switching the slime recipe to our easy slime recipe (without shaving cream). This is because the shaving cream “fluffiness” will settle after a day and you’ll lose volume in your slime. One batch will fill one mason jar on the day of creation, but it will settle down in the jar after a day. If you’d like to gift it and have it last, consider making 2 batches or switching to our slime recipe without shaving cream and use a smaller mason jar.

Let’s make your Santa Jar first! It’s really simple, you’ll just need wide black ribbon, gold glitter foam paper and black buttons.

Santa Mason Jar

First add your large ribbon around your jar. You can hot glue (adults only) the ribbon to the jar. Then glue on your gold belt on top of your ribbon. Now glue two buttons to the top of the jar or use glue dots.

Now that your Santa mason jar is complete we can make the fluffy Santa slime!

Ingredients Needed for your Santa Slime

Red Glitter Glue (4.5 – 5 oz)

– 1/4 cup water

– 1/2 teaspoon baking soda

– 4 cups unscented shaving cream (more if you’d like)

Liquid Red Food Coloring 

– 2 TBSP contact solution  **Important: your brand of contact lens solution must have boric acid and sodium borate in the ingredient list. Read more on our favorite contact solution to use for slime here. This is what interacts with the glue to form the slime.

Santa Slime Recipe Instructions

1. First empty your bottle of red glitter glue into a bowl and mix in your water. Adding water is optional but it will make your slime stretchier.

2. Now mix in your baking soda.

3. Now add your 4 cups of shaving cream in and mix. This is where you’ll need to add more red food coloring. The food coloring can stain so be sure to use a spoon for mixing and cover any surfaces to protect from staining. You’ll need to add a lot of food coloring to get it red since the shaving cream is white. Also note that mixing with your hands you will get slightly stained from the red but it can be easily washed off.

4.  Now slowly mix in your contact lens solution. If you add too much in, it will make your slime hard and not as stretchy. We like to add just a teaspoon at a time and mix until you’re satisfied that the slime is not too sticky.

5. Now knead, knead, knead while continuing to add in your contact solution a teaspoon at a time.  If this is your first time making slime, you’ll be surprised how much you need to knead and mix the slime before it’s a good consistency. This is normal. Keep mixing and slowly add in more contact solution.

6. At this point you can see how your slime consistency has turned out. If it’s too sticky, add a bit more contact solution. If it’s not fluffy enough, you can add another cup of shaving cream and work it into the slime. If you’re still finding it sticky you can use some hand lotion on your hands while you’re mixing and kneading it.
