If you’ve gotten tired of just watching videos of people playing with slime or don’t know what slime is, yet want to give it a try, this article is for you! Slime is a unique play material composed of a cross-linked polymer. “Play material” caught your eye didn’t it? Well just like its name suggests, it is amazing to play with and a great stress buster to revive on.

Slime doesn’t just come in one single form or is made in a single way. There are many different types of slime that can satisfy a person in distress. Each form of slime has its own method of preparation, here are five of which we’d like to share with you!

1) Fluffy slime

This recipe is the easiest and simplest of all! Just like the name suggests, fluffy slime feels softer and lighter compared to a regular slime, and it might be soft enough for your hands to feel great while playing with it during your stress buster session.


• Mixing bowl

• Mixing spoon

• Shaving foam cream

• Elmer’s glue or PVA Glue

• Contact lens solution

• Baking Soda

• Food coloring (choice)


A) Add some PVA glue or elmer’s glue into the mixing bowl (not much of it is required as this recipe makes a decent amount of slime even with a less amount of glue used) and add shaving cream foam (after shaking the can well) into the bowl of glue.

B) Add a pinch of baking soda into the same bowl (Baking soda Loosens the slime to make it less sticky to surfaces) and mix it well with a mixing spoon.

C) Add a few drops of your choice of food coloring into the mixture and mix again, for the color to show.

D) Add a small amount of contact lens solution into the mixture and mix until it becomes a slimy structure (keep adding a small amount after a good mix if it doesn’t but be sure not to add too much as it might make the slime break instead of spreading) When the mixture detaches from the bowl and becomes a blob, that’s when the slime is ready!

2) Crunchy Slime

Crunchy slime, as its name suggests is fun to play with because of the sound it makes. So here’s how to make some Crunchy slime!


• Mixing bowl

• Mixing spoon

• Stay-Flo liquid starch

• Clear Elmer’s or PVA glue

• Clear beads

• Food coloring of your choice


A) Pour some amount of Clear PVA or Elmer’s glue into a mixing bowl.

B) Add a drop or two of the food coloring of your choice (too much color can make the slime dark and opaque) and mix.

C) Add a small bit amount of Stay-flo liquid starch and mix. You can notice that the solution is becoming a bit slimy. Keep adding a bit amount of the starch and mix until the slime is formed.(The slime may seem opaque due to the air bubbles formed, but if you let it settle down for a while, then it will become clear).

D) Add some clear beads (glass or plastic)to the slime and play around with it until the beads completely stick into it and create a Crunch-like sound as you play.

3) Floam Slime

Floam slime is a mixture of Floam and slime, where Floam is a play structure that can mould into different shapes. Seems interesting? Well, here is how you can make it!


• Mixing bowl

• Mixing spoon

• Foam bead balls

• Liquid starch

• Elmer’s Glue or PVA glue

• Food coloring of your choice


A) Pour in some Elmer’s or PVA glue into your mixing bowl (you can add as much as you want depending on how much slime you’d like to make).

B) Add some food coloring of your choice into the bowl and mix until the color is visible.

C) Add a small amount of liquid starch and mix until the solution becomes slimy.

D) Add foam balls to the slime and play until the balls are completely adhered into the slime.

4) Butter Slime

One of the hardest recipes of slime and the most complicated to make. Yet totally worth the effort! As the name says, butter slime looks and spreads around like butter and feels extremely smooth to play with.


• Mixing bowl

• Mixing spoon

• Contact lens solution

• Baking Soda

• Elmer’s Glue or PVA glue

• Corn flour

• Shaving cream foam

• Baby oil

• Food coloring (preferably yellow)


A) Add three table spoons of corn flour and three table spoons of PVA or Elmer’s Glue into the mixing bowl.

B) Add three heaped table spoons of shaving cream foam (This might be a bit difficult to measure but try your best to get some accurate measure).

C) Add four pinches of baking soda to the mixture in the bowl.

D) Add the food coloring into the mixture and mix well until it starts to look and feel like cake batter.

E) Add two teaspoons of contact lens solution into the mixture and mix well until the slime is formed.

F) Add half a teaspoon of baby oil to give the slime a buttery structure. And start playing!

5) Iceberg Slime


• Mixing bowl

• Mixing spoon

• Baby powder

• Borax

• Elmer’s glue or PVA glue

• Shaving cream foam

• Hand lotion

• Food Coloring of your choice


A) Empty a whole bottle of Elmer’s or PVA glue into a mixing bowl, and add a whole can of shaving cream foam into it as well.

B) Add three pumps of hand lotion to make your slime silky, and four pumps of baby powder to give it a matte finish.

C) Add some food coloring (preferably blue and green together to make it look like an iceberg) and mix. (The mixing becomes very difficult as the quantity is very huge and there might be even chances that you have to add more food coloring to intensify the mixture color).

D) Add one teaspoon of borax into hot water (separate from the mixing bowl) and mix.

E) Slowly add the borax solution to the slime mixture and mix until the solution becomes slimy. If you let the slime settle down in the fridge or even in a cool area, the top layer hardens for you to break like an iceberg when you are ready to play.
