My daughters love slime — so we have been on a mission learning how to make it!

Here is our favorite recipe so far!


  • White Glue
  • Foaming Shaving Cream
  • Food Coloring or Washable Paint
  • Saline Solution {for sensitive eyes, store brand and contains both sodium borate


STEP 1:  Put 2 bottles of white glue into a bowl.

STEP 2:  Put about 3 cups of shaving cream into a bowl.

STEP 3: Now add the color!  We used washable kid paint because it had glitter in it.  You can use regular old food coloring though.

STEP 4: Add 1 tablespoon of the saline solution to the mixture and start stirring.  Add more saline solution until the mixture doesn’t stick to the bowl anymore.

STEP 5: Spend a few minutes kneading the slime

STEP 6:  Have fun!

  1. As a parent, so fun! As a teacher…not so much, LOL! My students went through a slime faze and we found it everywhere!

  2. Slime is definitely something that my kids absolutely love, but I am not a fan of the mess. I have found that making and playing with it must be done at the kitchen table or outside! This sounds like a really easy recipe to put together, and so much fun for them to play with. Thank you so much for sharing!
