It’s the most wonderful time of the year – SLIME TIME! No, really, it’s Christmas time! But there are so many fun Christmas slime recipes you can make this time of year.
Making and playing with slime is a great sensory activity to do with your kids. Maybe you’re wanting to plan some one-on-one time with your child, or are looking for a project to do during a play date or sleepover – slime is a great option.
Slime also makes a great gift idea for tweens to give to their friends for Christmas. We have done this in the past and my girls loved making and giving slime as a gift and their friends enjoyed receiving it. You can buy the perfect size containers at Michael’s (or you can get them here); last I checked they were around a dollar each. We then made cute labels for the top of each jar and stuck them on with a spray adhesive.
I’ve made labels for the first six slimes on the list below; you can use them too if you like. I recommend printing them on card stock.
So, if you have kids that are crazy about slime, check out the list below for some of the best fun & festive slime recipes for Christmas time!

If I can turn an activity or a craft into something that focuses on Jesus, then I’m super excited. So, I decided to make a slime recipe that was inspired by the nativity story.
