Ask any kid what they craft they want to create and you’ll hear again and again — “I want to make SLIME!!” They love the way it feels in their hands and watching it stretch and go back to shape again.
If you have made any slime recipes you have found online, you have probably experienced the stains they can leave on your walls and carpet. Fortunately, you won’t have that when you make this clear slime — or what we call snow slime.
I’ve tried a ton of slime recipes, but this one is my favorite! It’s not slimy or sticky and can be stored and used over and over again. It only takes three simple ingredients and my kids love it!
We’ve also made sparkle slime and flubber, but our kids come back to this one again and again. The fact that it is doesn’t leave stains behind makes me happy that they love it so much.
You can also change it up and instead of using snowflakes, use hearts, shamrocks — whatever you want depending on the current holiday season. In our house, it’ll always be snow slime for Christmas, though!

CLEAR SLIME RECIPE
5 oz bottle of clear school glue
1/2 Tablespoon baking soda
1 1/4 Tablespoon contact lens solution (saline solution found in most grocery and drug stores)
Combine the glue, contact solution and the baking soda in a large bowl. It is best to use a silicone spatula and continue to mix it. The longer you mix, the less sticky it will be. After some time, you will want to use your hands to continue blending in the liquid in the bottom of the bowl until well mixed. (It will be sticky, but again, the more you blend it, the less sticky it will become).
Once you feel that it is not too sticky, add in a few snowflake confetti. Work them in well with your fingers until well blended into the slime. You can store it in an airtight container so your kids can play with it time and again.
