DIY ‘Frozen’ Themed Snow Day Slime!

If you haven’t heard yet then I presume you have no access to internet, cable or a radio. In the event that you haven’t heard we are getting a major snowstorm. I’m sure all of your kids will have a snow day tomorrow, which means that if you also have a snow day you might be racking your brain for things to do with them.

This is a super fun project for kids that gets them away from the television, internet and phone for a while.

DIY Frozen themed slime!

You can find most of the ingredients in your cupboard or school supply area. Here’s what I used:


Elmer’s clear glue (you could try white as well)

Blue food coloring


Borax (you could also try powdered soap)


2 mixing bowls, measuring cup and measuring spoons


Add 1C of water to a mixing bowl then add 1tsp of Borax and mix. Set aside.


In the other mixing bowl add 4oz of glue and 1/2C of water and mix. Then add in the glitter and 2-4 drops of food coloring. Mix.



Combine the borax mixture to the other bowl and mix until it becomes slightly stiff then mix with your hands. The more mixing the better. Squeeze out the remaining water and let your kids play!

Enjoy your snow day!

DIY Snowman Mugs


Now that the holidays are behind us and the decorations are put away, we can move forward with a long cold winter. Only kidding of course, but for the kids there is nothing quite as fun on a cold day as hot chocolate. To make things even more fun when it’s too cold outside to play, why not make your own customized hot chocolate mugs?

This DIY project is very easy and you can use as much, or as little, creativity as you want.

What you’ll need:

White mugs ( try Target or Walmart.)

Orange and black Sharpie’s for snowmen, or any color if the kids want to get creative

An oven set at 350 degrees

Hot chocolate for the end 🙂




You can copy my snowmen or make a design of your own. When you are done, simply place the mug in the oven and bake at 350 for 30 minutes. These make great gifts for teachers, classmates or family!
