It feels a lot like I always imagined playing with butter would feel like, except that it doesn’t melt like butter would. If you’ve never tried fluffy slime before, you definitely should!
How to Make Soft and Fluffy Slime
Fluffy slime will come out perfectly every time if you use these directions, but it is a bit trickier to make than traditional slime.
What you’ll need to make soft and fluffy slime:
Soft and fluffy slime can be a bit tricky to make, but in the end, it is so much fun!
Mix equal parts white glue and shaving cream in your jar, adding a few drops of food coloring. For this particular batch, we did one cup of shaving cream and one cup of glue.
After mixing, add an equal part of laundry starch to the jar (1 cup in our case) and mix.
At first, the slime will be stringy. It’s not ready yet. If you find a lot of shaving cream coming off on your hands, rinse the slime under a tap for a few seconds and it should start to firm up.
This is how it should look.
Once the slime is ready, it is ready to play with!
My kids love pressing their hands into soft and fluffy slime but stretching it is also always fun.
