How to store:
Place the slime inside an airtight container. You can use a mason jar or container with a good lid.
Another option is a ziplock bag for storage. Feel free to use either option that you have on hand. Both will work great.
How long will slime last?
If stored inside an airtight container, it will last several days. You can extend the life of the slime by refrigerating it.
Slime that has been refrigerated often can last up to a month. If you spot mold develop though, immediately throw the slime away.
- Food Color. Substitute other colors to change this seasonally or for anytime of the year. Let kids choose their favorite color.
- Mix-ins. Use any type of confetti or sprinkles that you like. Get creative with other colors and shapes. This can be adapted for any occasion.
- Seasonal. Try making this for other holidays. For example, use red food or pink food coloring with heart confetti for Valentine’s Day. Pastels would be pretty for Spring or Easter.
- Snowman Slime. Omit the food coloring so it will be white. Place inside a baby food jar or small jar and draw on the outside a snowman face.
Tips for Christmas Slime:
- If the slime is too sticky, add more liquid starch until it’s the consistency that you prefer. Add the starch gradually so that you do not add too much.
