This is such a simple slime recipe for making slime that I can’t wait to add it to our list of best slime recipes.

I use to think making slime was an impossible activity with wasted time and effort and a disappointed kid. Plus it’s a recipe, and I don’t like to follow recipes! However, I think our recipes for making slime are really easy to follow, and you can get the ingredients on your next shopping trip.
Slime is a pretty fascinating substance and it’s a cool chemistry experiment too. We enjoy making slimes for different seasons or holidays. It’s a fun way to spend an hour enjoying a chemistry experiment and sensory play.
BEST WAY TO STORE FLUFFY SLIME!
Sad to say but fluffy slime will not stay amazingly fluffy for a very long time! However, even after the fluff has left the slime, it’s still an amazing and thick texture that is a bit fluffy.
Store this slime in a reusable container and you are good to go for more slime play with it. I have been squishing, stretching, and swirling my batch of fluffy slime for a couple days now!

I have a ton of pictures to share because my son had so much fun, and I couldn’t stop taking them! But you do get to see just how fluffy and massive this slime really is!
We made three batches each in a different color. Although I used the neon food coloring pack, I ended up with very pretty pastel colors due to all of the white shaving cream.
It doesn’t take a whole lot of ingredients to make all of this slime if you can believe it! The slime whips up in just a few minutes!
Fluffy slime is pretty inexpensive to make if you want to do something extra special for your next slime, sensory, or science activity. You can check out how we used dollar store ingredients too!
UNIQUELY TEXTURED FLUFFY SLIME!
We don’t like a sticky slime that really sticks and goops up the hands. Our slimes are a little thicker but still totally stretchy and fun. Make sure to check out our super stretchy slime while you are at it!
The base for this fluffy slime is our famous SALINE SOLUTION SLIME RECIPE with the addition of a special ingredient!
Once we made our first batch of fluffy slime we were hooked and like any good slime making scientist, we wanted to repeat the fluffy slime recipe to double check our measurements.
I like to be able to give solid measurements as opposed to those recipes that say to add until… I need to know the details.
We made two more batches that turned out perfect and made a beautiful bowl of fluffy slime he couldn’t wait to get his hands on! I love how they mixed together and made a gorgeous swirl of colors.
Now for the past year we have been using this same exact fluffy saline solution slime recipe to make all out themed fluffy slimes like you saw up above!
FLUFFY SLIME RECIPE SAFETY NOTES
Learning how to make homemade slime is totally worth it and your kids will love it! Let’s remember that slime is still a science experiment and every science experiment should be adult supervised.
I am in charge of the chemical solutions used in cross linking to form the slime. I will also do the majority of the mixing. As my son gets older, he will be allowed to assist even more. DO NOT change out ingredients.
A typical slime recipe will contain borax, sodium borate, or boric acid. They are all derived from the boron family. If you have any troubles with borax take a look at our alternative slime recipes list for different ideas or our completely borax free slime list.
Wash hands thoroughly and clean and disinfect work spaces accordingly.

WHIPPING UP YOUR SALINE SOLUTION FLUFFY SLIME
I definitely like to call this whipping up slime because of how fluffy it is!
- Measure 3-4 heaping cups of shaving cream into a bowl.
- Add color! We used neon food coloring, but there are so many choices!
- Next, add a 1/2 cup of glue to the shaving cream and mix.
- Add 1/2 tsp of baking soda and mix.
- Add 1 tablespoon of the saline solution to the mixture and start whipping!
- Once you get the mixture thoroughly whipped and incorporated, you can pull it out with your hands!
TIP: Before removing the slime from the bowl, squirt a few drops of saline solution on your hands. The slime can be sticky to start. It can be kneaded in the bowl as well. Don’t add too much extra saline as the consistency gets less sticky with kneading.
Repeat the fluffy slime recipe with different colors or enjoy the one batch! We made a giant batch of yellow fluffy slime the other day by tripling the recipe!
If you are wondering why your slime has failed, make sure to double check your ingredients and measurements.
The volume produced from the shaving cream creates such a cool texture, like a cloud. Plus it doesn’t smell too bad either!
Check out the photo story of our saline solution fluffy slime below, and you can see the fun he is having with our new slime recipe.
Super thick and easy to make saline solution fluffy slime.
We left the bowl of fluffy slime sitting out for about 6 hours as part of the experiment to see what would happen to the shaving cream.
The mixture definitely lost some steam and was not as light and fluffy, but was still fun to play with for a bit.
