Slime supplies

● Medium Sized Glass Bowl

● Measuring Spoons



● PVA Glue (Elmer’s works best!)
● Activator (1 tsp borax – 1 cup water)
● Shaving Cream
● Baby Oil
● Lotion (Anything works)

● Soap scent, Candle Scent, or Essential Oil

Step 1

Slime ingredients




Measure 1 cup of glue into your glass bowl. (2 – 4oz. bottles)



Step 2


Add the following ingredients:

  • ¼ cup – Shaving cream
  • 1 tsp – Baby oil
  • 1 tsp – Lotion
  • 2 tbsp – Foam soap (optional)
  • ½ tsp – Soap or Candle scent or Essential Oil
  • Coloring – Whatever quantity you would like.
  • ¼ cup – Foam beads (optional for texture)


Step 3

Slime bowl

Stir until mixture is smooth. Make sure it is mixed well BEFORE adding the activator.




Step 4



Add activator one teaspoon at a time,
mixing between each addition. This is to
ensure your slime doesn’t turn out too
sticky or stiff. You will need about five
or six teaspoons.


Step 5

Add foam balls or other items to add texture, or leave plain for a smooth slime.




  • This recipe takes about 25-30 minutes to make and yields approximately 8 ounces.
  • Washing your hands before making and playing with slime will not only help keep your slime clean but also help it not stick your hands.
  • Putting a little activator on your hands will also help the slime not stick to you.
  • Choose your favorite scents and colors or match the season.
  • Too sticky? Add ½ tsp of activator.
  • Too stiff? Add lotion or warm water.
  • Store in an airtight container or Ziploc bag to keep your slime from drying out.
