Leprechaun Snot

As a lot of you already know, the St. Patrick’s Day Leprechaun and I are actually pretty tight. For those of you who are not up to speed, I have a pet unicorn and she introduced us. Growing up in the Cotton Candy Kingdom, my unicorn had the opportunity to meet many different holiday icons. She is close with pretty much all of them and the Tooth Fairy is even her Godmother. Every year on St. Patrick’s Day, the Leprechaun comes over to our apartment and celebrates a few traditions with us. (You can click here to check them out.) One year while he was making us some of his famous Lucky Charms pancakes, he had to sneeze. He looked away and didn’t sneeze on our breakfast (thank God), but he did sneeze on my cabinet door. Well, I thought that Cupid and my unicorn were the only things alive that had pretty snot… but I guess I was wrong. Maybe only human snot is gross? Ughhh… let’s not get crazy. Anyway…. it was shimmery and had tiny shiny clovers in it! So I thought I would make a few adjustments to the Cupid’s Snot recipe and help you create some fun St. Patrick’s Day Slime for your kiddos to enjoy.

 BOWL ONE:

* 2 Cups Glitter Glue

(or use clear glue and add glitter and food coloring if you’d like– I went back and forth on whether I wanted to make the slime green, gold, and or something on the lighter side. I decided to go lighter with a green shimmer so that my green clover confetti would stand out more.)

* Clover confetti

* 1 & 1/2 cups very warm water

Combine the above ingredients in a bowl and mix well

BOWL TWO:

* 3/4 tsp Borax

* 1 & 1/3 cups very warm water

Once the ingredients of both bowls are mixed combine them and mix well. As you mix the ingredients the slime will form. There will be left over water in the bowl which can be discarded. If the slime is at all runny or overly sticky simply dissolve a tiny amount of borax in a teaspoon of water and mix it into the slime.

I bought the little buckets to store the slime in at Michaels. You will need 4 buckets for one batch of slime.
