What You’ll Need (See the clickable picture below to go directly to all the ingredients used to make this slime):

  1. Wood Glue: You can substitute Glue All or School Glue if you would rather not use Wood Glue.
  2. Shaving Cream: Any brand will do, but make sure it’s the foamy kind.
  3. Slime Activator: A storebought slime activator is used in this recipe.
  4. Liquid Colors or Food Coloring: Optional, but it adds a pop of color to your creation.
  5. Mixing Bowl: Choose a bowl that’s large enough to contain your ingredients and allow for mixing without spills.
  6. Mixing Utensil: A spoon or spatula works well for stirring.


1. Prepare Your Workspace:

Before you start mixing ingredients, lay down some protective covering on your workspace. Slime-making can get messy, so a plastic tablecloth or some newspapers will save you from a cleanup headache later on.

2. Mix Glue and Shaving Cream:

In your mixing bowl, combine equal parts wood glue and shaving cream. The shaving cream adds the fluffy texture that gives this slime its name. Stir the mixture until it’s well blended and has a smooth consistency.

3. Add Slime Activator:

Once your glue and shaving cream are thoroughly mixed, it’s time to add the slime activator. This ingredient turns the glue into slime and helps give it the right texture.

4. Incorporate Food Coloring (Optional and can be added during any stage of the slime-making):

For a colorful twist, add a few drops of liquid coloring or food dye to the mixture. Choose your favorite color or mix different shades to create a custom hue. Remember, a little goes a long way, so start with a small amount and add more as needed until you achieve your desired color.

5. Knead and Play:

Once your fluffy slime has formed, take it out of the bowl and knead it with your hands. This step helps to distribute the ingredients evenly and gives you a chance to feel the satisfying texture of your creation. As you knead, the slime will become even fluffier and more stretchy, ready to be molded and shaped to your heart’s content.
