crunchy spring slime

This colorful, spring inspired slime is full of pony beads that make a crunchy sound when playing with it that has an epically satisfying sound! Read below to make yours and have fun with its fantastic crunchiness!
Step 1

Project Notes:

   -  When you’re crafting with little ones, keep an eye on the glitter and pony beads, since these may present a choking hazard.
   -  When making slime, be smart and protect your work surface with wax (or parchment) paper. You also may want to wear an apron (or other protective garment) to avoid slime-related accidents.


Start by finding your favorite clear glue slime recipe to use for this batch of Crunchy Green slime.

Step 2

Follow your recipe’s instructions to make a batch of clear slime and mix in Leaf Green icing color.

TIP: Dip a craft stick into the icing color container, then mix the color into the glue, stirring thoroughly until it’s completely blended. Always use a new, clean craft stick when dipping into your food coloring, in order to avoid cross-contamination.

Step 3
Flatten out your slime on a piece of wax (or parchment) paper and sprinkle on some green glitter. Fold the slime’s edges in toward the center to blend the glitter into the slime.
Step 4

Repeat this technique to add lots and lots of the colorful pony beads. The more you add, the crunchier your slime will be! Continue folding and stretching until the glitter and pony beads are evenly distributed throughout the slime.

TIP: When you’re done playing, make sure to store your slime in an airtight container (or a re-sealable plastic bag).
