St. Patrick’s Day is a fun holiday to spend with your loved ones. Patrick and Jennifer remember waking up on this day excited to dress in green and eat their lucky charms cereal. However, if one of them forgot to wear green, a pinch from the other sibling was coming their way! They also remember how short the day felt. The siblings went to elementary school, came home, and the fun was over. However, the holiday can continue by learning how to make homemade slime!

Luckily, once the hunt for leprechauns with your children ends, there are many St. Patrick’s Day crafts to continue the fun! Slime is a clean and easy craft which you and your children can enjoy making! Plus, it can last weeks, even months if properly sealed. Your children can choose the scent and color of slime as well. Try green food dye for St. Patrick’s Day and P&J Grass or “Irish” coffee fragrance oil! Slime is a fun craft and an easy way to keep your children entertained. Just follow the simple steps below and create yet another way to enjoy this fun day with your family.


1 ½ Cups Warm Water

1 4oz Bottle School Glue *white or clear

2 Non-Food Use Bowls *plastic works great

2 Non-Food Use Spoons

1 Teaspoon Borax

12-15 Drops of Fragrance Oil *Grass or “Irish” Coffee

Food Coloring *optional green for St. Patrick!


In the first bowl, combine 1 cup of water with 1 teaspoon Borax and set aside.

To the second bowl, add the remaining 1 ½ cup water with 4oz of glue. Then, mix well until completely blended.

Add desired food coloring in the same bowl of glue mixture, as well as your preferred Fragrance Oil. *could use green coloring & grass oil for St. Patrick’s Day!

Pour Borax and water mixture into the glue mixture, stir well until the consistency becomes flexible like slime.
