Gingerbread Slime

Here at Ruffles and Rain Boots, we get into Christmas. No, really–we REALLY get into Christmas around here. There’s music on all the time, the decorations are up by the end of day on Thanksgiving (and I keep adding to them), and the gifts, well, I start making the gifts pretty early on. One thing I’m making for a quick and easy stocking stuffer this year is this glitter slime recipe.

Once I figured out how to make safe slime for the kiddo, I knew that Christmas slime would be on my list of to-dos for the holiday. I’ve thought about doing candy cane slime, but I couldn’t resist the thought of delicious-smelling gingerbread in a slime. And because any kid will love slime, or even a slime kit, in their stocking, well, it makes the perfect stocking stuffer. If you’re ready to get this holiday slime recipe made, let’s get started.

Tips to Make This Gingerbread Slime Recipe

  • Because this kid-safe glue doesn’t call for boric acid or saline solution (contact lens solution), you won’t need your ‘normal’ slime ingredients or even random ones like baking soda. You’ll want some clear school glue (or you can use Elmer’s glitter glue), some liquid starch, and some glitter (so much glitter). You’ll dump all of that in a mixing bowl with some food coloring and gingerbread flavoring. And that’s it.
  • Since Elmer’s glue is a prime ingredient, this is going to be one of the sticky slime ideas, but that just means you need to tell the kids to keep it on the kitchen table or craft table. This will keep the slime from (hopefully) ending up in your rug and earning you a new Christmas gift of new flooring.
  • This is one of the best free slime recipes because the way it smells. But let’s be honest, I do feel like I need to make gingerbread now. So, I mean, maybe it’s one of the worst. Because now I need a treat. LOL!
