Christmas Wrapping Paper Slime

I couldn’t go through Christmas without making a Christmas Slime so I decided to do one that is crunchy and sounds like your crunching up wrapping paper, The kids love it and it has kept them busy for hours.  I found the Chunky metallic flakes at Hobby Lobby in their Christmas crafts section, but if you don’t have a Hobby Lobby or can’t find them, you can always try a metallic paper and cut it into small pieces . I just Hobby Lobby, you can find anything in that store.


1 airtight container

1 5 oz bottle of clear glue

½ cup water

½ tsp baking soda

1 tbsp contact solution

Chunky flakes *See note below*

Small bowl


In a bowl, pour the entire 5 oz bottle of clear glue.

Add in ½ cup of water.Add the chunky glitter flakes.Add in ½ tsp baking soda and stir.Add 1 tbsp contact solution.  It will instantly begin to form.

It will be STICKY!  Don’t panic!  Mix the solution in the bowl until it starts to form.Knead the slime until it is no longer sticky.

Store in an airtight container.


*You can also try metallic wrapping paper sheets!*
