Kid-Friendly Slime Recipes!

Slime became really popular the last couple of years, and kids love the stuff. Lots of sellers have emerged on both boutique platforms (like Etsy), and in more traditional stores, but you can never be too sure about what goes into the slime they sell. Making slime isn’t that difficult, and it’s a great craft activity to do with your kids. You don’t even need borax to make slime, so you can make slime even if you live somewhere where borax is unavailable. We’re going to share two easy kid-friendly recipes to make slime: one with liquid starch, the other with saline solution.

How to Make Kid-Friendly Starch Slime

You will need:

½ cup nontoxic PVA glue

½ cup liquid starch

½ cup water at room temperature

Food colouring in your desired colour


To make the slime:

Mix the glue and water together in a bowl until thoroughly combined. Add a few drops of food colouring to the mix (the more drops you use, the bolder the colour will be). Once the food colouring has been mixed into the water and glue mixture, add the starch to the bowl and stir thoroughly. Kneed the slime for a few minutes until it reaches your desired consistency.


How to Make Kid-Friendly Puffy Slime

You will need:

½ cup nontoxic PVA glue

3 cups of shaving foam

Food colouring in your desired colour

½ tsp baking soda

1 Tbsp saline solution

To make the slime:

Combine the shaving cream and glue together in a bowl before adding a few drops of food colouring. Mix thoroughly before adding in the baking soda and saline solution. Mix until combined, and then kneed the slime until it reaches the desired consistency. Be careful not to add too much saline solution, or your slime will be rubbery.
