In our house, Slime is a big deal. This Grinch slime happens to be a family favorite! We use to buy those little slime kits that included everything you needed to make various slimes.
As a busy mom, I always thought that would be the easiest route but I was wrong! Slime kits just don’t seem to make the same great results that we have found we get with homemade, customizable, slime recipes!
One of our favorite times of the year is Christmas so of course, we have to create themed slimes during the holiday season! Making slime is a fun and super easy Christmas activity for kids! This is our favorite Christmas slime we have tried! If you are looking for more Christmas fun, these gingerbread snowman cookies will be a hit!
We all feel a little bit “Grinch-like” once in a while so it’s not hard to relate to the grumpy attitude. We just love the message that the movie teaches, about accepting love and friendship into our hearts! We practice this at home regularly with these positive affirmations for kids constantly being said!

Instructions to make Grinch Slime:
1. Measure your 5 ounces of glue and pour the entire amount into a bowl.
2. Add 1 half of a cup of water to the glue.
3. Add 1 drop of green food coloring to the mixture and stir well. Then add 1/2 a teaspoon of baking soda and stir.
4. (My Favorite step) Mix in LOTS of Glitter. When you think it’s enough, add more to your Christmas slime!
5. Add in 1 tablespoon of the contact solution. Once added, your slime will instantly begin to firm up and become slime.
6. At this point, your slime WILL be sticky. It’s okay, just keep stirring your mixture until your slime really starts to form well.
Then, begin kneading your slime by hand until it is no longer sticky.
7. Add in your heart charm and enjoy your beautiful Grinch Christmas Slime!
