You want to make slime and you need the best slime recipes to do it! We know slime, and we know that kids want to make cool slime that stretches, that oozes, and even makes those funny farting sounds. I know my son is a big fan of that right now. Did you know that slime is really easy to make, is a cool chemistry lesson for kids?
THE BEST SLIME RECIPES FOR MAKING SLIME WITH KIDS
WHAT MAKES THESE THE BEST SLIME RECIPES?
There is a recipe for everyone everywhere in the world. I know that some territories and countries can not get certain ingredients, so we have tried to put together an awesome list with slime ideas for everyone.
Plus, we are always working on more slimes to share. We make slime every week, so we are always testing out new things, creating new themes, and making sure our best slime recipes really are the best.
Making slime is a chemistry experiment and a fun one too. However, like any cool science experiments, they should be done with adult supervision. Adults should measure and handle all chemicals used when making slime.
Also, slime activities should be properly cleaned up afterwards. Disinfect surfaces, mixing tools, and containers when you are finished with your slime experiment.
Wash hands thoroughly after playing with slime.
Do not switch out ingredients if not listed. Many slimes contain borax or a form of borax, even liquid starch which contains sodium borate.
We have never had any reactions, but you must decide what is best for your situation.
This slime does not use borax powder or liquid starch.
DO YOU THINK SLIME IS HARD TO MAKE?
I did until I tried it! You see all those awesome pictures on Pinterest and you think you will never get it to come out right. If you use our traditional slime recipe is our favorite and is really a no fail win for us! Make sure to buy glue by the gallon.
We also love to give out slimes for party favors or just because. Nothing will amuse a kid for awhile like slime! Check out our new emoji slime that kids will love to give and get!
The two pictures below show the two most popular ways to make slimes. One uses liquid starch and one uses borax powder for making slime. These are more traditional slime recipes. I LOVE our liquid starch slime recipe, hands-down. Click on the pictures for the recipes.
Flubber is a really neat slime that is thicker and stronger! Give it a try.
WHAT CAN YOU DO WITH SLIME?
One of our favorite things is to give our slimes themes for all the holidays, seasons, and even some of our favorite characters. It’s one of the activities we love to play with for each new holiday, and you will find we have tons of themed slimes no matter what month it is!
WHAT ABOUT THE SLIME SCIENCE?
The science behind the traditional slimes is pretty cool, so we made a whole other post about the science behind the slime. Our science is geared for younger kids, but we have resources for you to use with older kids too.
STILL LOOKING FOR ALTERNATIVE RECIPES?
So we have all kinds of the best slime recipes to choose from and we have added some great ideas from our friends who also love slime. If you need a borax free slime, a taste safe slime, an alternative to slime, or a slime without liquid starch, we have a ton of slimes to choose from!
ARE YOU READY TO MAKE SLIME YET?
I hope we have given you enough options to get you on your way to making awesome slime in no time. It’s true, sometimes slimes fail. It’s happened to all of us. I will say that with our liquid starch slime it almost never fails, and it’s usually a bad batch of glue as opposed to the recipe.
