Saint Patrick’s Day Slime

Saint Patrick’s Day is on Saturday and I was trying to think of ways that you can make it special. I don’t know a child or an adult that doesn’t get excited about slime! This recipe is easy and super fun to make.

Trust me, we have made a lot of slime at my house with a few success stories but a lot of fails. This one works every time with less mess!


I’m using my favorite slime recipe, which includes clear glue, water, and borax. Plus shamrock confetti and gold glitter. 

Note: This recipe uses a very small amount (1/4 tsp) of Borax. The borax can irritate skin. 


You will need two small bowls and add 1/4 cup of water to each.


In the first bowl add 1/4 cup of clear glue and a generous sprinkle of glitter and shamrock confetti. Depending if you want it to be more gold or more clear will determine how much you will add.


In the other bowl add 1/4 teaspoon of borax. Mix each bowl well.


Slowly stir the borax mixture into the glue mixture and watch your slime begin to form! Keep stirring until everything is mixed well.

Note: the more borax you add the stiffer it will become.


We stored our slime in Ziploc bags. The great thing about this recipe is that you can use it for Easter too. Just replace the shamrock confetti with Easter egg confetti. Happy Saint Patricks Day everyone!
