Fluffy Slime Recipe

If your kids are little I would suggest not bothering with the food coloring because in the process it does slightly stain their hands and of course if they get it on their clothing there is really no great way to get that out.

Here are the basic instructions on how to make fluffy slime easily, play around with the amounts until you get the consistency you want! 😉

  1. Empty your bottle of glue into a bowl (using a disposable bowl is great if you have one)
  2. Spray a little more shaving cream than you have glue into your bowl (about 6 oz. of it)
  3. Mix together well

Add 1 tbsp of contact solution (we don’t measure we just squeeze from the bottle) in at a time stirring in between until you get the desired fluffy slime consistency you want.

Contact solution will help bind it so keep adding a bit at a time until you can pick it up and play with it easily. That is how to make easy fluffy slime.

Shaving Cream Slime

I will say that I have felt all the different types of slime they have made and this one really does feel good. Put out a flat cutting board and let them smoosh it and break it apart. Mash it and pull pull it all they want. It makes for an inexpensive and fun afternoon.

Once you’ve made this one check out our other slime recipes above and try one of those too. Many do not contain borax and one is even edible too!

Do you have a slime recipe your kids love and make often that is different from ours….we’d love to hear and see what it is!! Next make slime without borax!

It depends on how much you want them to make. She makes this for one batch for her to play with but suppose you could share that batch with 2 kids.

Ummm...the reason contact solution works is because it has borax in it.

It’s actually boric acid, serving the same purpose (chemical reaction) but not actually powder Borax. Serves as a reasonable alternative.
