Make your own slime! It's really fun to play with, it's stretchy, squishy and doesn't stick to your hands! Kids will have a lot of fun making their own home made slime and I'm sure they will play with it for hours!
Check out the video at the end of this post to watch how I made this slime!
To make this DIY fluffy slime you will need:
Add approximately one cup of glue to your mixing bowl. Then add one cup of shaving foam and a drop of food colouring. Mix all of the ingredients together thoroughly with a spoon.
Now add half a teaspoon of baking soda to the slime mixture and mix everything together until you have created a smooth mixture.
Add approximately one table spoon of contact lens solution to the slime mixture. This is what will make your slime become stretchy and not sticky on your hands. Add it in gradually and your mixture should begin to stick together and come away from the surface of the bowl.
*If your slime is too sticky, try adding a few more drops of contact solution.
*If your slime is too wet and sloppy, try adding a bit more PVA glue.
This slime recipe does not include borax. Make sure you are aware of all of the ingredients in the slime recipe, as I have heard of instances where the slime can react badly with skin. This happens when the mixture contains borax (which a lot of home made slime is made with) instead of contact solution.
The ingredients that I used didn't cause any reaction as they are all friendly to the skin, but be sure to check the specific ingredients that you use.
When the slime is coming away from the bowl itself, and appears to not be sticky anymore, take it out of the bowl and knead it with your hands. The more you work with it the less sticky it will become. I found that rolling it into a ball helped a lot! If it is still sticking to your hands add another drop of contact solution.
