Make Magic with the Ultimate Santa Slime Recipe

Save this idea for later!

It’s Christmas time again!

Full confession: this year, I totally wish I could skip Thanksgiving and go straight into the Christmas rush!

We just bought our first house, and it’s begging to be decorated for Christmas and filled with Christmas STEM activities. 

My kids can feel my anticipation for the holiday, because they are already asking to do Christmas activities. I’m a good mom, so I indulged them.

We made this Santa Suit slime from a basic slime recipe and it’s so cute!

It’s not only fun to play with in the moment, but it would also make an adorable Christmas party favor for a kids’ Christmas party, or you could even slip some into your kid’s Christmas stocking if you’re brave enough.

If you’re in a bit of a rush though, no worries, just remember that brands matter when making slime.

We will not make slime unless we have Elmer’s glue on hand, Good food coloring (that’s a brand), and Sta-flo laundry starch.

While there are other ways to make slime, like with Borax powder  and baking soda (we’ve never gotten contact lens slime to work), laundry starch slime is by far our favorite, and we will always recommend using it above any other recipe.

Your basic slime recipe is:

  • 1 part glue
  • 1 part water
  • 1 part laundry starch

That is it! We tend to do a little less water than the other ingredients for a slightly dryer slime, which we did in this particular Santa suit slime recipe.

To make the Santa slime, you’ll also need:

  • Small container (we used a mason jar)
  • Black ribbon
  • large silver button
  • Silver glitter
  • Red food coloring

Mix your glue, water, glitter, and food coloring in a container.

Add your starch and mix with a fork (why a fork? It grabs the slime well when it’s in the mixing stage).

When the slime gels, take it out and squish it and stretch it between your fingers.

We found that sort of shaping it and kneading it like bread dough makes it firm up really quickly.

To make your Santa jar:

Wrap a black ribbon around the center of the jar. Glue the silver button to the ribbon. Place the slime in the jar. It’s done!

Isn’t that lovely?

Wouldn’t that be so perfect as a Christmas party favor? Use tiny containers for even smaller Santa suits.
