Are you looking for a green craft to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with your kids or students? This St. Patrick’s Day Green Slime is easy to whip up with just a few household ingredients.
I don’t know if my girls will ever outgrow making slime. It’s so easy for them to toss everything into a bowl and in a few minutes they have something to keep their hands busy for a bit.
They also love all the different variations of slime and sometimes they like to toss things in just to see what the outcome will be. I think their favorite type to make is fluffy slime with shaving cream. I always have a few cans of Barbasol in the cabinet. It’s cheap and fun to use in a pinch if your kids are bored. Just put a little bit on a cookie sheet, or right on the kitchen table, and kids will be entertained for a while!
It’s hard to believe that Spring is almost here. The weather today sure doesn’t seem like it. Cold/snow/ice/windy…all of the above! Not only does March mean Spring, but it also means March Madness….and that is one of my most favorite times of the year. I certainly missed it last year, so I’m really looking forward to it this year!
St. Patrick’s Day Green Slime
You will need:
1/4 cup warm water
1 Tablespoon contact solution
2 drops Green food coloring
Pour the glue in a bowl then add 1/4 cup warm water to the bottle and shake gently to get any remaining glue then dump in the bowl. Stir well.
Add in the baking soda and stir well to combine. Next, add in 2 drops of food coloring.
Now, add in the fun stuff. The shamroks, glitter, and gold coins.
Slowly pour in the contact solution. The recipe calls for 1 Tablespoon, but I think slime is very finicky. We made two batches the exact same way and one was perfect slime and the other was a little stiffer.
Super easy and you may have most of the ingredients at home!
