I couldn’t let St. Patrick’s Day arrive without making a special slime to celebrate. Shamrock slime is easy and fun to make…and it just might be the perfect bait for a leprechaun trap!
How to make Shamrock Slime
I’m using my favorite slime recipe, which includes clear glue, water and borax. If you have a preferred slime recipe, feel free to substitute that and just add in the chunky green and gold glitter and shamrock confetti.
Note: This recipe uses a very small amount (1/4 tsp) of Borax. Children should never be allowed direct contact with undiluted borax. Always monitor small children playing with slime.
Take two small bowls and add 1/4 cup of water to each.
In one bowl add 1/4 cup of clear glue and a generous sprinkle of glitter and shamrock confetti.
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.
Store your shamrock slime in a sealed container when you’re not playing with the slime. And as always, keep out of reach of small children. (As in anyone young enough to potentially eat the slime!)
