Keep the kids busy this Summer with this homemade glitter slime recipe and Disney Frozen printable labels.
Raise your hand if your kids are in love with Disney’s Frozen? You are definitely not alone my friend. My kids are borderline obsessed with the movie since watching it in theatre last Fall. Since buying it on Blu-Ray I’ve lost count how many times it’s been watched in our home. Not only are we constantly watching the movie, we listen to the soundtrack every time the kids are in the car. I’ve also lost count how many times my daughter has sung “Do you want to build a snowman?” with that sweet little voice of hers. In homage to our new favorite Disney movie we recently made homemade glitter slime to play with. Homemade slime is a great boredom buster that keeps the kids entertain throughout the day.
With Summer quickly approaching its time for me to gather ideas to keep the kids busy with activities, games, and new recipes to try. I’m hoping to avoid the infamous “Mom, I’m bored” discussion as much as possible this year. One of our favorite activities is making slime to pass the time. The kids will play with their batch of slime for hours while I get things done around the house. We typically use white Elmer’s glue to make slime but have also tried using the glitter glue. For this slime recipe I wanted to make a white glitter slime that reminded the kids of snow. To make the slime have a shimmer effect I mixed in white iridescent glitter after the slime was beginning to form. I’ve added a note in the recipe card with the recipe we typically use to make glitter slime using Elmer’s glitter glue. I’ve found the white glue is easier to work with but I recommend playing around with water/Borax ratio until you find the consistency you prefer. The more Borax you use the stiffer the slime will get.
Also, in case you’re wondering I found these 8 pack containers at the Dollar Store. They’re perfect for glitter slime party favors!
