Among the many variations, floam slime stands out for its unique texture, incorporating small foam beads for added crunch and fun. Making your own floam slime is not only a fantastic DIY project but also a great sensory activity for both kids and adults alike.

In this blog post, we’ll guide you through a simple recipe to create your own white glue-based floam slime. Everyone will LOVE making this slime! Whether you are making this with the family or you are planning to have a slime party, this is a slime everyone will love!


Step 1: Prepare the Glue Mixture

Start by pouring the desired amount of white school glue into a mixing bowl. . If you want colored floam slime, add a few drops of food coloring to the glue and mix well until the color is evenly distributed.

Step 2: Add the Foam Beads

Once the glue is colored (if desired), it’s time to add the foam beads. Pour a generous amount of foam beads into the glue mixture. The amount of foam beads you add will determine the texture of your floam slime. For a crunchier texture, add more beads, and for a softer texture, add fewer beads. Use your spoon or spatula to gently fold the beads into the glue until they are evenly distributed.

You may also want to add your foam beads after activating your slime. This works well and will not alter the end result at all.

Step 3: Activate the Slime

Now it’s time to activate the slime mixture to give it the right consistency. There are two common activators you can use: borax activator or saline solution.

If you’re using saline solution, sprinkle in a few pinches of baking soda into your glue mixture and mix, then add a few drops at a time of contact lens solution and mix until the slime reaches the desired consistency. Be careful not to add too much activator, as it can make the slime too stiff.

If you prefer to use the Borax Activator. Go ahead and dissolved 1 teaspoon of borax in 1 cup of water. Once all the powder is dissolved, it is ready to add the activator to your slime. Add a teaspoon at a time, mixing after each addition. Continue to add activator until your slime comes together and is only slightly sticky.

Step 4: Knead and Play

Once the slime has come together, it’s time to get your hands slimy! Remove the slime from the bowl and knead it with your hands to further incorporate the foam beads and achieve the perfect texture.

If the slime is too sticky, you can add a little more activator until it reaches the desired consistency. As you knead and stretch the slime, you’ll feel the satisfying crunch of the foam beads, making it a truly sensory experience.

I divided the slime into 6 equal parts. These are the types of containers I used to do this. Now you can color the slime however you like. I am using these food colorings.

I am using foam balls from a bean bag chair I purchased. But you can get similar foam balls from neck pillows or here.

I chose to organize all my different colors into a Tupperware container like this one.
