Making Zombie Slime

This fluffy zombie slime comes together pretty quickly. Just keep whipping it up till it pulls away from the sides and bottom and forms a blob.

Whipping Up Zombie Slime Fluffy Slime Recipe

A good tip: Squirt a few drops of saline solution onto your hands before you pick up the slime to knead it! It will reduce the stickiness. Once you give it a good knead, it won’t really stick to your hands anymore.


Although fluffy slime isn’t really a play dough or sculpting material, but you can mold a cool zombie brain thingy with it! We pushed it into our mold and pulled it out carefully by grabbing it in the middle. You can see the imprints!

Your fluffy slime won’t stay fluffy forever. If your kids are wondering why, have them squirt out a bit of the shaving cream onto a plate and observe the changes over time. This is what is happening to the zombie slime too.

However, as it loses it’s fluff, it still makes cool zombie brain molds and it takes on an even different texture.

Molding zombie brain with fluffy zombie slime

This fluffy zombie slime is a real treat for kids to make and a super fun theme. I suppose you can store it for a few days in a container with lid but generally this isn’t something we save and reuse for long. Our regular slimes can keep for quite awhile.
