Looking for a less messy, yet extra fluffy slime in your life? I have just the recipe for you! We have made 4 batches of fluffy slime in the past couple of days. The limiting factor is the white glue, or we would have made even more! I am not exaggerating – my kids (ages 7 and 9) have spent hours this summer playing with fluffy slime, and have proclaimed that “fluffy slime is the best slime ever!”.
Fluffy Slime Process
Here we go!
STEP 1: Gather the ingredients. You will need: white glue, shaving cream, food coloring, saline solution, baking soda, and baby oil.
STEP 2: Measure (as best as you can) 4 cups of shaving cream, and add it to a large bowl.
STEP 3: Swirl in some food coloring. We used quite a bit of food coloring (neon gel food coloring), and our slime was still somewhat pastel. The white shaving cream really diffuses the bright neon food coloring.
STEP 4: Add 1/2 cup of white glue and 1/2 tsp baking soda and stir thoroughly. The baking soda helps with the texture of the fluffy foam.
STEP 5: (This is the slime-making step!) Add 1.5 TB saline solution. Stir it up until you just can’t stand it anymore and have to get your hands in there!
*NOTE: Most slime recipes contain boron in some form – borax, sodium borate, or boric acid. Our saline solution contains sodium borate and boric acid. We have never experienced any adverse reaction from any of our slime recipes. Please supervise your children and be sure to wash hands after play!*
STEP 6: Add a few drops of baby oil (we found this helps with keeping the slime from sticking to your hands), and knead, knead, knead.
After a few minutes of kneading, your slime is no longer sticky and is ready for playtime!
STEP 7: HAVE FUN!
*Note: You will notice after hours of play, your fluffy slime begins to deflate. We have saved all of our fluffy slime, and the kids continue to play with it in its non-fluffy form. By day 2, it is incredibly stretchy, and the texture is more like silly putty. Still fun, but different!*
