For all the slime making fans out there, here’s a slime perfect for winter. It comes out fluffy and sparkly, just like real snow. You can even shape it into a snowman! It’s one of my absolute favorite slimes to make and won’t get cold playing with it!

The key to snow slime is using instant snow to make it nice and fluffy (which is actually different than making “fluffy slime“). It’s actually a cross between clear slime and cloud slime plus the added glittery benefit!

I’ve also created a handy set of slime recipe cards to print and cut out. Download them below or from the shop.

How to Make Snow Slime

Prepare the Instant Snow for the Snow Slime

The key to making snow slime (and cloud slime) is using instant snow, which you can find on Amazon. Some brands may be different, but you want to mix up 1 Tablespoon of instant snow. Mix it with the amount of water listed on the packet (mine ended up being 1/2 cup).

pouring instant snow into a measuring spoon

Let the instant snow absorb the water. Then give it a mix to help fluff it up. You may need to add more water if it still looks dry.

Set it aside.

Make Clear Slime for the Base of the Snow Slime

Start by making some basic clear slime. Pour some clear glue into a bowl (this is the type I’m using). I used about one cup.

Mix in the slightly less than the same amount of water (so I added roughly 2/3 of a cup).

The reason you want to add water is the clear PVA glue reacts more strongly with the slime activator. Therefore it can get hard more quickly. Adding the water makes sure it won’t get hard.

Mix in the slime activator a little bit at a time until it starts to form clumps (~1 teaspoon at a time).

You can make your own slime activator or use store-bought. You’ll want to mix a cup of warm water with 1 teaspoon of borax until it’s dissolved. This will be used for multiple slimes.

At this point I recommend mixing it by hand instead of stirring it. It will be a sticky mess, but eventually you’ll get a nice stretchy slime.

Finish the Snow Slime

Gradually mix the instant snow into the slime. I personally like to dip it into the bowl to pick up the instant snow. Then stretch and fold over the slime to mix it in.

Continue the process to mix in the rest of the snow.

Tip: If it feels dry you can add more water.

Mix in the glitter. I ended up using about 5-10x what’s in this photo.

I recommend using biodegradable glitter like this one.

Continue to stretch it for a few minutes. Eventually, this is what it will start to look like. When you pull it slowly you’ll start to see strings forming across and it will feel fluffy and soft.

Tip: If it feels too sticky, add slime activator. If it’s not wet enough, add water.

Let the Snow Slime Rest

Now the key to snow slime is to let it rest over night. This does two things (1) it removes the air bubbles, making the slime more clear, and (2) snow slime always feels better the next day.

After just the day of rest, this is what your snow slime will look like. It’s beautiful, fluffy, and sparkly.

And when you stretch it out these fun strings will form.

The drizzle is just incredible. It feels so soft and fluffy, just like real snow (without the cold)!

I personally love to fluff it and make it into little snow balls or shape it into a snowman and then stretch it apart again!
