Slime Recipe for Kids Easy, Fluffy not Sticky

Slime recipe that teaches you how to make homemade slime that kids will love, great DIY science experiment and top easy slime recipe, cosmic star slime

What You Need
  • Liquid Starch
  • Food coloring OPTIONAL I use Wilton’s Color Right for the best and brightest results
  • Shaving Cream
  • Star Sprinkles
  1. To get going, you need to start with glue. Pour approx 2 cups of glue into a bowl. You do not need to measure this…just wing it. As much glue as you pour is about as much slime as you will get returned. IF you want a lot of slime like in this recipe, I suggest you make a few small batches and then combine versus over pouring. You will have mixing problems otherwise.
  2. Spray in about 1 cup of white foamed shaving cream and mix the glue and shaving cream together.
  3. Add a few drops of your coloring and stir.
  4. Once your slime is colored, its time to add the liquid starch. Spray starch is not the same thing, please use liquid. Pour in approx 2-3 tablespoons full of starch and stir. The glue will start to form immediately. Stir for a few minutes to get it all mixed up and then take out the goop and begin kneading between your hands, passing back and forth.
  5. Here is the tip: If the slime is sticking to your fingers, it doesn’t have enough starch. Either dip your slime back into the bowl and mix more starch (if there is some left in there) or pour a little bit more into the glue mixture little by little till it starts un-sticking. The entire process can take about 5 minutes. Its easier to add more starch than add more glue, so its better to start with less starch and add. The reason there are no hard measurements is because most people make varying sizes of slime batches, so you will need to find the exact ratio.
  6. Now add your star sprinkles. Wait about 30 seconds so they can absorb and then enjoy playing!

** Add a bit of liquid starch if its too sticky and it will remove the stickiness. Typically the shaving cream makes it fluffy and easy to play, making this the best slime recipe of all!
