In this post we will give you 5 easy steps with 5 easy ingredients showing how to make fluffy slime. Slime is all the rage these days…in fact I had to go to 5 different stores (how many times can I say the number 5?) to get glue to make this fluffy slime! I initially planned on using regular white Elmers glue and then adding food coloring, but the only type of glue that was left on the shelf at the store was this Elmer’s glitter glue…this led to the birth of GLITTER FLUFFY SLIME! We had a blast making this fluffy slime – it was the perfect activity to kick off the summer break with our kids.
What You’ll Need to Make Fluffy Slime
- 1 cup of Barbasol Original Shaving Cream
- 1 bottle of Elmers Glitter Glue (6 oz) – your color of choice
- 1 cup warm water
- 1 teaspoon of Borax solution
- 3-6 drops of Eye Contact Solution
How to Make Fluffy Slime
- Squeeze 1 bottle of Elmers Glitter Glue (6 oz) into a bowl
- Stir in 1 cup of Barbasol Original Shaving Cream
- Stir in 3-6 drops of Eye Contact Solution
- In a separate bowl, mix 1 teaspoon Borax solution with 1 cup of warm water
- Add Borax solution slowly to your mixed glue and shaving cream, knead slime until it no longer sticks to your hands
Here are the ingredients you will need to make your fluffy slime. I’ve also included some links to amazon (affiliate) if you don’t want to go to five stores like I did looking for glue 🙂
Here is everything you will need to make fluffy slime
First step is to add the glitter glue to a bowl. Plan on using this bowl to mix and knead the slime at the end.
Make sure and take a second to pose like you’re a mad scientist!
Next add 1 cup of Barbasol original shaving cream.
Mix both ingredients together. You may want to also put down some newspaper or plastic to protect your beautiful runner on your table…we forgot that part!
Add about six drops of contact lens solution. This helps the slime not be so sticky when it is done. This also helps the glitter to not flake off from the slime.
Add one teaspoon of Borax to 1 cup of warm water in a separate bowl. Stir until the borax has disintegrated. You can put this water-Borax solution in a squirt bottle or just spoon it onto your slime. I’ve even seen some people use the empty glue bottle as a squirt bottle for the Borax.
Spoon the Borax + Water solution slowly onto the slime. Stir with the wooden spoon first, then transfer to kneading by hand.
When first kneading, it will be sticky. You know it needs more Borax solution if that is the case. Add the Borax + water solution until the slime no longer sticks to your fingers or the bowl. Be careful to add slowly because too much borax will cause the slime to break and not be as squishy.
This is what the slime will look like when it no longer sticks to the bowl.
This next step is optional, but I recommend it. Put your slime into a sealed tupperware and let it set up overnight. These cool bubbles will form on top that are fun to pop, but your slime ends up the perfect consistency if you leave it overnight.
As you can see it just plops right out of the tupperware. It’s no longer sticky and the glitter stays in place (for the most part).
So pretty and awesome to play with!
Can’t stop squishing, hopefully you now know how to make fluffy slime…Hope you can have some fun with this with your kiddos. Here is another link to everything you will need:
