Make this wonderful cinnamon fluffy slime recipe for some Autumnal sensory play fun! Perfect for messy, sensory input as well as fine motor skills and imaginative play, this is a slime recipe that you’ll want to try!
Autumn and Winter are so evocative of those warm cooking smells from the kitchen, the cosy and comforting scents of spices and baking. We have made lots of scented play recipes over the years (which are all worth a try too) such as Gingerbread Salt Dough, Cinnamon Play Dough, Gingerbread Play Dough, Autumn Spices Watercolour Paint to name just a few.
Now that we mastered the super fun SLIME RECIPE using UK INGREDIENTS we have been testing out new ways to adapt and play with that too, starting with this awesomely scented Cinnamon Fluffy Slime Recipe. It smells amazing and is so soft, stretchy and fluffy to play with!
How to make our Cinnamon Fluffy Slime Recipe:
1 cup PVA/ white glue
1 teaspoon Bicarbonate of Soda (Baking Soda in the USA)
1-2 cups Shaving Cream (the more you add the fluffier it gets, just try and adjust other ingredients too)
1-3 tablespoons Contact Lens Solution (must contain Borax in ingredients list. Use the one linked here- it works!)
Liberal sprinkling of Cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon yellow gel food colouring

Mix the glue and food colouring in a large, clean bowl.
Stir through the bicarbonate of soda (baking soda.)
Next add the shaving cream and fold it through carefully so as to retain the air.
Sprinkle the cinnamon liberally and add more at the end if needed.
Finally, add the contact lens solution in increments, carefully, until it is the exact consistency you wish for.
Mix it in the bowl and then get your hands in and start kneading it until it loses its stickiness and it becomes wonderfully soft, stretchy and pliable!
Because of the added shaving cream ingredient it is sometimes necessary to add more contact lens solution to get the consistency exactly right. It’s not an exact science so play around with it.
Note that the more contact lens solution you add the more brittle it might become, so take it slowly and try kneading it thoroughly first!
We found this to be so thick and fluffy and it truly smelt amazing! The kids even asked what cookies I had made when they first smelt it in the house!
Because of the extra fluffiness the volume was huge and stretched soooooooooo far when pulled! Miss 5 could make it stretch well over her height in length.
This is really fun when set out with some typical Autumnal nature treasures such as mini pumpkins, gourds, pine cones and leaves. Use it to hide conkers inside to search through and find or find a way to make the rudest noises with it by squelching ad squashing! This is, of course, one of the kids’ favourite ways to play 🙂
Top tip for removing slime from clothes:
Recently my two year old got a huge lot of slime all over his lovely jumper and I honestly thought it was ruined as I couldn’t pick or wash it off for love nor money! But thankfully I tried one last ditched attempt to rescue it by soaking in a large bowl of warm water with washing up liquid (dish soap/ detergent) in it. And within a couple of hours the slime had completely melted away and disappeared! I then washed the clothes as normal and it vanished. So don’t worry if this happens to you too, it’s remarkably easy to fix. Phew!
