5 ingredient fluffy slime recipe using shaving cream is a must try for kids! Plus 5 things you should know BEFORE making slime…you’ll be glad to know this beforehand!
5 IMy kids have been begging to make fluffy slime for forever now. So I finally decided to be a nice mom and by the supplies. I’ll be honest, I was really hesitant because we’ve made slime several times before and it is so messy! – and I just really didn’t’ want to deal with it. So before you go and buy the supplies to make your own slime, learn from my 5 things you should know BEFORE making slime. Then if you’re still ready to make it, stick around because I’ll share the recipe at the end of this post.
5 Things You Should Know BEFORE Making Slime
- mix the food coloring in with the glue
- wear gloves
- it will stain your carpet, your walls, etc (using a toothbrush and dish soap will get the sticky residue out of clothes) *snag my FREE homemade cleaners eBook to help with the cleaning process!
- it only stays fluffy for a short amount of time
- wipe out your containers with a paper towel or baby wipe…don’t wash the glue mixture down your sink!
OK, so you’re going to brave making it yourself? It really is fun…just remember, I warned you! Here’s a little fun for you…watch how my kids and I made it live on Facebook 🙂 —> make sure to like the page while you’re there!

Let’s Make It Together!
You Will Need:
1 tsp Borax
4oz. School Glue
1 tbs Corn Starch
1/2cup Shaving Cream
Water – start with 1/4 cup and add more if needed
Food Coloring (optional – it stays more fluffy if you leave out the food coloring)
Pour glue into a medium sized bowl
Add in shaving cream
Add water and Borax mixture (I let the Borax dissolve in the water before pouring it in the shaving cream mixture)
Add corn starch
Mix together – it will start off really wet and slimy
Add food coloring …but wear gloves!! Otherwise, your hands will end up like mine 🙁
Have fun playing around!
