Make a wonderful fluffy floam slime for sensory play, birthday party favours, tween play date activity and LOTS of fun!
You will know by know that we are well and truly hooked on making slime recipes and trying out as many different varieties as we can! We have tried scenting it to make a wonderful LAVENDER SLIME and CINNAMON SLIME, adding so much fluff to make a wonderful FLUFFY SLIME, adding seasonal extras to create this CHRISTMAS TREE SLIME as well as having some quirky good fun with EYEBALL SLIME, CONFETTI PARTY SLIME and jet black GALAXY SLIME! There are SO many ways to play and we aren’t stopping yet!
Today we will show how easy it is to make a fluffy floam slime that both feels and sounds wonderful when played with. It’s a true feast for tactile sensory seekers.
How to make fluffy floam slime:
You will need:
bicarbonate of soda (baking soda in US)
contact lens solution (must have borax listed as an ingredient or else it simply won’t activate and work)
food colouring or paint
Watch the video we have made here for a quick demo or read on for more instructions!
Combine 1 cup of glue, 1 teaspoon of bicarb (baking soda) and a small drop of food colouring (or squirt of paint) in a bowl.
Mix until colour is evenly dispersed.
Next add a liberal amount of floam balls and stir through.
Then add 2 cups of shaving cream and fold it in carefully so as not to lose the airiness.
Next, add 1 tablespoon of contact lens solution and mix until it becomes to clump and become stringy. Keep stirring and then take it out of the bowl to knead it quickly between your hands.
Within 1-2 minutes it will have lost all stickiness and become stretchy and super soft and fluffy.
All ready to play!
You will find that, due to the floam balls, this slime is amazing to touch and listen to! It feels so tactile and the popping, crackling sounds are really satisfying to hear as you play.
It looked amazing too and would work well as part of imaginative play games such as ice cream or candy store role play. Obviously remind the kids just to play and not to let it go near their mouths!
Floam balls and other small, tactile sensory materials would be fantastic at a slime making kids’ activity, set out in bowls for them to pick and choose from when creating their own concoctions! They could then add it to some small tubs to take home for a take home gift, or use this recipe to make and sell at a school fair event too!
