Since my grandmother is Irish, I like to do some fun things with my family for St. Patrick’s Day. This year I found a recipe for “Treasure Slime” and decided that my young boys may really enjoy this activity. It is a simple 2 ingredient slime recipe, which I decided to turn green for the occasion. You then add glitter, sparkling gems, coins, or anything you want to the slime. I decided to do this project outdoors on a card table, since it involves lots of glitter.
Green Treasure Slime Recipe:
1 Cup Liquid Starch (like Sta Flo)
2 Bottles of Elmers Clear or White Glue (8 oz. each)
Crayola Green Washable Paint (optional, may use any color washable paint or finger paint)
Glitter, sparkle confetti, and/or gems & coins
Step 1; Create slime base: Use a large bowl or container to mix the slime. Start by adding both bottles of glue, next stir in paint to create a colored slime. Then stir in the liquid starch and the transformation magically happens!
Step 2: Dump in glitter and stir. Next add the treasures: confetti, gems, coins, etc.
Step 3: Let your kids play with the slime and find treasures. When done put lid on container to store the slime for another day. You may also store in a ziplock storage bag. It will keep for a long time.
