DIY Snow Slime

The possibilities for slime are endless and making snow slime is lots of fun. We really enjoyed learning how to make cloud slime recipe so thought we would try snow slime recipes.

It is not just a winter slime activity. The kids will think it is cool to make snow in the warmer months too.

This DIY craft is fun all year and great for sensory play with hours of fun. Whether you make this for a fun winter activity or a spring craft, it will be a blast. Find the best slime activators.

What is the science behind Snow Slime?

This slime is made by combining PVA glue with a slime activator. We used contact solution with boric acid in this DIY slime.

The borate ions mix together with the glue and form the slime. The consistency will be stretchy and so fun to play with.

How do you make fluffy snow slime?

It is super easy but you do need one special item. You need Glitter or Instant Snow to make snow slime.

Instant snow is so fun to work with and you can also use instant snow to make fluffy cloud slime. It is optional but really adds to the fun factor if you use instant snow.

You also want to make sure you use Saline Solution with boric acid in it when making slime. This is super important, so the slime activates correctly.

Which Instant Snow is best for slime?

We like to use Cra-Z-art snow powder to make this DIY. It always turns out great!

You can check your local stores for this instant snow powder, or I usually just order it online. This is the best fake snow for slime.
