BASIC SLIME RECIPES 

All of our holiday, seasonal, and everyday slimes use one of five basic slime recipes that are super easy to make! We make slime all the time, and these have become our go-to favorite slime recipes!

I will always let you know which basic slime recipe we used in our photographs, but I will also tell you which of the other basic recipes will work too! Usually, you can interchange several of the ingredients depending on what you have on hand for slime supplies.

Here we use our Fluffy Slime recipe. Guess what makes the light fluffy texture? You got it, shaving foam! Slime with fluffy shaving foam and saline solution is one of our favorite sensory play recipes! We make it ALL the time because it is so quick and easy to whip up. Add a bit of color and you are done!

Now if you don’t want to use saline solution, you can absolutely test out one of our other basic recipes using liquid starch or borax powder. We have tested all these slime recipes with equal success!

NOTE: We have found that Elmer’s specialty glues tend to be a bit stickier than Elmer’s regular clear or white glue, and so for this type of glue we always prefer our 2 ingredients basic glitter slime recipe

OCEAN FLUFFY SLIME RECIPE

I always encourage my readers to read through our recommended slime supplies list and How To Fix Slime Guide before making slime for the first time. Learning how to stock your pantry with the best slime ingredients is easy!

YOU WILL NEED:

Note for this under the sea slime theme, we made three batches of fluffy slime to swirl together!

  • 1/2 Cup of White PVA Glue
  • 3 Cups of Foaming Shaving Cream
  • 1/4-1/2 Tsp of Baking Soda
  • 1 Tbsp of Saline Solution (contains both sodium borate and boric acid as ingredients)
  • Food coloring, and other fun under the sea mix-ins

HOW TO MAKE FLUFFY SLIME:

STEP 1:  Measure 3-4 heaping cups of shaving cream into a bowl. You can also experiment with using less shaving cream for different textures!

STEP 2: Now’s the time to add color! Remember when you add color to white glue, the color will be lighter. Use clear glue for jewel toned colors!

STEP 3:  Next, add a 1/2 cup of glue to the shaving cream and mix.

STEP 4:  Add 1/2 tsp of baking soda and mix.

STEP 5:  Add 1 tablespoon of the saline solution (the slime activator) to the mixture and start whipping! Once you get the mixture thoroughly whipped and incorporated, you can pull it out with your hands!

Start kneading your slime! It will appear stringy at first but just work it around with your hands and you will notice the consistency changes. 

SLIME TIP:   We always recommend kneading your slime well after mixing. Kneading the slime really helps to improve its consistency. The trick with this slime is to put a few drops of the saline solution onto your hands before picking up the slime. However, keep in mind that although adding more activator (saline solution) reduces the stickiness, but it will eventually create a stiffer slime. You can always add but you can’t take away!

You will love how easy and stretchy this ocean theme fluffy slime is to make, and play with too! Once you have your desired slime consistency, time to have fun! How big of a stretch can you get without the slime breaking?

STORING YOUR FLUFFY SLIME

Slime lasts quite a while! I get a lot of questions regarding how I store my slime. We use reusable containers in either plastic or glass. Make sure to keep your slime clean and it will last for several weeks. I love the deli-style containers I have listed in my recommended slime supplies list.

If you want to send kids home with a bit of slime from a camp, party, or classroom project, I would suggest packages of reusable containers from the dollar store or grocery store or even Amazon. For large groups, we have used condiment containers and labels as seen here.

We have the best resources to look through before, during, and after making your ocean theme slime! Make sure to go back and read the slime science above too!
