St Patrick’s Day Slime

Slime is all I hear about these days so I thought it only fitting that we make St. Patrick’s Day Slime. If your kids are all about slime, they are going to absolutely love making St. Patrick’s day slime recipe.

We made Valentine’s Day Homemade Slime and it was a huge hit. So, I knew we had to make something glittery and gold for St. Patrick’s Day.

I think this is one of the prettiest slimes we have made. The swirls of gold and glitter and green look so festive!

Saint Patrick’s Day slime is fun and frugal.

When we first started out making slime, my kids liked to get those slime kits. We quickly learned how expensive they are and absolutely unnecessary. You can easily make your own slime with just a few ingredients and have some leftover for more slime recipes.

How long will slime last:

Homemade slime will last for a couple of weeks. However, if you start to to see mold or dirt, it is time to toss it.

It will last longer if you make sure your hands are clean before playing with it.

Tips for making Leprechaun slime:

  • Contact Solution. The type of contact solution that you use for making slime is very important.  You can’t just use saline solution. It needs to be contact solution that contains boric acid and sodium borate.
  • Knead the slime. Make sure to knead the slime until the desired consistency
  • White Glue. This can be substituted instead of glitter glue. You can use food coloring to make gold and green slime.

Is slime a liquid or solid?

Slime is a non-Newtonian fluid. This means it is neither a liquid or a solid.

It has qualities of both. Slime can be picked up similar to a solid but also oozes like a liquid.

    The two tone colored slim looks like so much fun and I like the fact that it doesn’t use Borax when I am making it with small chldren.
    However, as a teacher I noticed it said to “knead ” the ingredients with your “heads?” Must have been a very busy and tiring week! ha
