Why Snow Slime?
Do you get snow where you live? I live in Southern Germany, and we get snow for quite some time, but the idea of snow slime is phenomenal for days when you need a fun indoor activity for kids.
Also, it is great for those who live in more warmer places and don’t get snow as much. DIY snow slime truly represents the idea of actual snow – made with white glue and white foam beads + a bit of glitter, it makes a super fun sensory play instrument.
Slime Recipe With Glue and Contact Solution
There are tons of different ways you can make a snow slime, but in my opinion, the most easiest way to make any slime is to use PVA glue and contact solution that activates the slime. Why? Because you can get these supplies at almost every store!
Other common slime activators are :
- Borax Powder
- Saline Solution
- Contact Solution (Eye Drops)
- Liquid Starch
It is so easy to make your diy snow slime with contact solution and white PVA glue – it makes the perfect slime consistency right away.
What Supplies Do I Need for My Snow Slime Recipe?
There are few different ways how you can make the fluffiest snow slime, but this exact recipe is so easy to recreate – you are going to need white PVA glue, fine glitter, and fake snow beads. It will more likely to turn out as a foam slime because of the white foam beads that will give your slime a snow-y feeling.
The slime consistency will be fluffy, stretchy and crunchy at the same time. Plus, we are going to add peppermint essential oil to make this slime look, feel and smell like holidays and Christmas!
The peppermint extract is also going to give that cooling effect, which again – makes just the most perfect winter sensory play activity ever!
Ingredients Needed to Make Fake Snow Slime :
Please supervise your kids when making slime and have them wash their hands when they are done playing. This is not an edible slime recipe as the peppermint scent and cooling effect may reflect that.
- 5 oz white Elmer’s glue (147ml)
- 1tsp baking soda
- 2 tbsp saline solution
- 1/2 cup of water (118ml)
- white foam beads
- peppermint essential oil
- optional : fine glitter
Other Materials :
- glass bowl
- wooden spoon or spatula for mixing
Recreate this foam snow slime recipe :
There are few supplies you’re going to need to recreate the slime recipe. The base of the slime uses clear or white glue, water and foam beads.
You are going to need one white Elmer’s glue bottle which is 147ml, or you can measure the glue into a measure cup if you have 1 quart Elmer’s washable clear glue in your supplies storage like I did.
I have been using this baking soda for quite of my slime recipes and I am loving it! 10/10! Definitely recommend this baking soda for your snow slime recipe if you don’t want to experiment with other brands.
Now, the slime activator – you can use any brand of contact solution.
The most important thing to keep in mind when shopping for contact solution is to look up if the exact contact solution has one of these – sodium borate, boric acid or borax powder. These ingredients mixed with PVA glue makes the perfect consistency that turns out as a fun kids science experiment called SLIME!
Renu Contact Lens Solution is also a super popular slime recipe ingredient, but I couldn’t find it on Germany’s Amazon Shop, that’s why I used German brand, but I made sure that there’s a boric acid in the contact solution brand.

This is the main ingredient that will make our slime recipe more like a snow. White foam beads mixed with white PVA glue the consistency turns out crunchy and fluffy at the same time.
Let’s make a scented diy slime by using peppermint extract. This supply will be a great addition to make your snow slime ready for the holiday season and Christmas time. Do not add it for kids under 6, because the peppermint oil can be quite strong. Also – choose an organic peppermint essential oil for kids to play with it!
The fine glitter powder is optional, but to make the slime even more fun to play with, add white or silver colored fine glitter that is safe for skin. It will add the shimmery effect to your snow slime, just like in a sunny winter day when the snow is shimmery and glowy in the sunshine.

Step 1 : In a glass bowl pour out 5 oz of white Elmer’s glue. Add 1/2 cup of water stir until the glue and water are mixed together fully.
Step 2 : Now add white foam beads and fine glitter to your slime mix.
You can add as many foam beads as you want, the more you add, the crunchier it will get. I suggest adding in fine glitter as well, so that the slime will be shimmery and glittery.
Step 3 : Stir in baking soda and then mix it well.
At this point, the slime will get a bit thicker consistency, don’t worry – when we get to the slime activator part, it will change. Baking soda thickens the slime mixture.
