Make some amazing sparkly snow slime and present it in a bauble to make a cool gift for a tween! It would also be awesome to sell at the school Christmas fair fundraiser!
We seem to be making slime at playdates and birthday parties all of the time in recent months and the kids love coming up with new ideas for colours and themes to try!
This sparkly snow slime is just so fun for winter and is also a great stocking stuffer gift idea. It’s easy to make with our super quick recipe.
How to make sparkly snow slime:
Bicarbonate of Soda (Baking Soda)

Mix one cup of glue and 1 teaspoon of the bicarbonate of soda in a clean bowl. Now add up to 1 tablespoon of the contact solution. What I’ve found over many times making slime is that each PVA glue has a slightly different consistency (due to water content) and that can affect the amount of contact solution that should be added. Too much contact solution and the slime becomes brittle and snaps. It’s best to start gradually and mix well as you do so, to reach the perfect amount (which is roughly 1 tablespoon.)
Next, stir well and get your hands into the bowl and knead it. It will be sticky at first but quickly will stick only to itself, and then magically becomes super stretchy and oh so fab to play with!
Now tip in lots of silver glitter and stir through until it sparkles!
We loved the idea of then adding small snowflakes and crystal gems to make it even more special. These are a particularly nice addition when giving the slime as a gift.
Speaking of which, these fabulous clear plastic baubles are so much fun for making DIY gifts with! We’ve filled with sweets, craft materials and different slimes and they’re awesome stocking stuffers or class gifts.
Simply add roughly 1/4 of the slime to the bauble, add the decorations on top, seal and thread ribbon through!
