Have you made Fluffy Slime before?

This slime recipe is a follow up to our original Super Simple Slime recipe.

We decided to UP the slime skills and try making Fluffy Slime. Just as easy, only needs a few extra ingredients.

What you’ll need to make fluffy slime: 

  • Contact Lens/Saline solution ** MUST CONTAIN BORIC ACID **
  • Craft Glue. We used white craft PVA glue from Kmart. $4
  • Water
  • Shaving cream
  • Cornstarch
  • Foaming hand wash
  • Moisturiser (whatever you’ve got lying around)
  • 1 large cup
  • 1 large mixing bowl
  • Food colouring
  • Airtight containers to store

Tips to remember……vinegar dissolves slime, toothpaste removes food colouring from hands.

How to make it

  1. In a bowl add 1/2 cup of glue, 1/2 cup shaving cream, 1/2 cup foaming handwash, 1 tsp cornstarch and a couple pumps of moisturiser. Stir. 
  2. Add your food colouring. Stir again
  3. 1 squirt at a time add your contact lens/saline solution. You’ll need to experiment with how much you need for your perfect slime consistency, but we found around 3-4 squirts worked well.
  4. You’ll notice almost straight away that your mixture starts to become sticky and slimy. When it’s at the point you can take it out of the bowl with your hands start kneading and folding your slime until it’s nice and stretchy. Add more borax if it’s too sticky. Add a tiny bit of plain water if it’s too tough.

And there you have it! Fluffy, stretchy SLIME! Store it in an airtight container and it’ll last a while too.

  • Do you even have kids if you've never made slime? I have a love/hate relationship with the stuff. She loves it / I hate it because it's messy and almost always ends up somewhere it's not meant to be. BUT I do have to admit that it is pretty fun to make and also VERY satisfying when you get the recipe just right and make perfect slime. I feel like we've made every slime recipe known to man. We have whole books dedicated to the stuff. We've made fluffy slime, galaxy slime, bubble slime, glow in the dark slime and even edible slime using all sorts of ingredients and methods. When we find one that works we make sure to add it to this page to save you all the time (and frustration) of finding one that works. It is a bit of trial and error though and sometimes it can work one day and not the next. Different weather, different brands, different levels of supervision but kids LOVE MAKING SLIME so give it a go! What do we learn when we make slime? The two main concepts for slime science are polymers and Non-Newtonian Fluids. The white glue in our…

  • Here are a couple of quick and easy art activities inspired by Winter. SNOWFLAKE DECORATIONS You will need: PaperScissors Method: Start with a square. Fold in half to make a triangle, then fold the points upwards (check picture for reference) Then draw the snowflake design and cut out! Make a few in different sizes and decorate a wall or door! SNOWMAN SURPRISE You will need: Clear contactScissorsColoured card (or an old cereal packet you can cut up and colour)Either old lace doily from an op shop, cotton balls or white paper Method: This one is really simple but kept my three year old entertained for quite some time and she was thrilled with the result. Simply draw the snowman shape on the contact. Cut out and peel off backing. Stick to door or wall by folding over a couple of centimeters at the top and bottom. Let your child decide what accessories the snowman will have. If they can draw and cut them out by themselves, give them ownership of their artwork. My three year old drew the circle buttons, the lines on the carrot and the shape of his smile and I cut them out for her.

  • In the lead up to Easter it's pretty much a craft bonanza at our house. We have a few rules: It's got to be kid-oriented and age appropriate (eg. no origami or glass blowing!) . This year my kids are 3 and 2 (and 10 weeks, but he doesn't really count this year- sorry little man!). It should be an activity that the kids can do the majority of themselves so they can work on their fine motor skills, creativity and imagination. Some activities may require difficult scissor work, which may need adult help. The photos I've added in this post are the efforts that look most like what I expected! A lot of the craft we completed looked vastly different from one to the next, which is fine too. :-) It should be inexpensive to do (eg. no fancy paint brushes, sequins or cartridge paper) The mess should be as minimal as possible (eg. paint is fine, but glitter is NOT IDEAL). I'm fine with mess as long as it's not permanent! The art and craft activity should ideally use things I already have in the pantry or craft boxes So here are some of the craft ideas we've…
