Here’s a question I am messaged or emailed about all the time. How do you make slime? What are the best slime recipes? I have been working hard experimenting with cool slime recipes, fun mix-ins, and tinkering with just the right measurements. I believe we have some of the best, easy, homemade slime recipes around to share with you!
HOW DO YOU MAKE SLIME THAT’S REALLY COOL!
You can learn how to make slime quickly and easily with our basic slime recipes. They include all the most popular slimes that kids love to make including the fluffy slime, saline slime, crunchy slime, fishbowl slime, soft clay slime, and even glow in the dark slime.
Here’s a simple basic slime recipe with a cute surprise!
Lucky for you, all of these slimes use one of our favorite slime activators which is a combination of saline solution and baking soda. Now this isn’t homemade saline with salt and water. You need to double-check for the correct ingredients which are sodium borate and boric acid. These ingredients coupled with the baking soda make awesome, stretchy slime.
Of course you can also use our other basic slime recipes which include our liquid starch slime recipe and our borax slime recipe! Give them all a try and see which one is your favorite. I think the borax slime recipe comes in a close second for us.
All you need are the correct ingredients to get started and some basic directions. Below you will find a printable slime recipe cheat sheet. You can also check out our recommended slime supplies here. We have no affiliation with Elmer’s but love their PVA washable school and buy it by the gallon.
