Candy Cane Slime Directions

  1. Start by placing approximately 2/3 cup glue into a bowl
  2. Add approximately 1/4 liquid starch and stir with a spatula
  3. At this point, it’s best to get hands-on by taking the slime out of the bowl and working it with your hands.If the slime is too sticky, add more starch. If the slime is too goopy/stringy, add more glue.
  4. Add a drop or two of peppermint essential oil if you’d like*
  5. Once you have the perfect consistency, divide slime into two halves
  6. Mix red glitter paint into one half and clear into the other
  7. Layer into stripes before mixing all together for playtime!

*Only use a drop or two and only allow your child to touch the slime after the oil is thoroughly diluted throughout. We only use Young Living Essential Oils in our home and I wouldn’t recommend another brand for something that your child plans to touch!
