easter bunny and chick slime

Make a slime that’ll have them saying “Awww!” instead of “Ewww!” This delightful bunny and chick pair are made with a simple white glue slime recipe – keep it white for Mr. Bun, and add yellow food coloring for Ms. Chick. Decorate treat bags with paint pens and chenille stems to give them a little personality and off you go!
Step 1
Project Notes:
   -  You can mix and match any type of Elmer’s® glue for this recipe. We used one 4 fl. oz. bottle of white glue for the bunny slime, and second bottle for the chick slime (so that’s two 4 fl. oz., total). If you’d like your slime to look like ours, that’s what we recommend you use, too.
   -  When making slime, be smart and protect your work surface with wax (or palette) paper. You also may want to wear an apron (or other protective garment) to protect your clothing.
   -  Since each of these slimes (bunny and chick) is made from white glue, start out by finding your favorite white glue slime recipe. There’s no need to add food coloring to the bunny slime. For the chick slime, you’ll follow this recipe’s instructions for adding Lemon Yellow food coloring. 
 
With the first 4 fl. oz. bottle of white glue, mix up your favorite white glue slime recipe to make the bunny slime. Once it’s complete, set it aside for a moment. Don’t let it drip off the table.

Step 2
To make the chick slime, use one 4 fl. oz. bottle of white glue. Add Lemon Yellow food coloring according to your recipe’s instructions, then mix with a craft stick until blended. When your slime’s complete, set it aside. 
 
TIP: Dip a craft stick into the food coloring 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
Now it’s time to decorate your treat bags. On each treat bag, use a black paint pen to draw two small circles for the eyes, about two thirds of the way down from the top of the bag. Let the black paint dry, then make one or two dots inside each eye with the white paint pen to create eye shine. Let dry. 
Step 4
To finish the bunny treat bag, cut a tiny, pink nose out of adhesive foam and stick it onto a bag, just underneath the eyes.
 
TIP: Use our project image as a guide. 
Step 5
Stuff the bag about halfway with white slime, then twist and close with a twist tie. 
Step 6
Fold a pink chenille pipe cleaner into bunny ears, center the ears over the face on the bag, then wrap the chenille pipe cleaner’s ends around the twist tie closure to secure. 
Step 7
To finish the chick treat bag, cut an orange triangle-shaped beak out of adhesive foam and stick it onto the other treat bag, just underneath the eyes. 
Step 8
Stuff the bag about halfway with yellow slime, then twist and close with another twist tie. 
Step 9
Fold an orange chenille pipe cleaner into three points, center the middle point over your little chick’s face, then wrap the ends of the chenille pipe cleaner around the twist tie closure, just like in the photo. 
Step 10
If you plan to keep your slimes for more than a few hours, be sure to store them in an airtight, sealable container (or a re-sealable plastic bag).
