Before You Start

  • Get your parent’s permission, of course!


  • 1/4 cup of water
  • 1.5 tablespoons of contact solution
  • 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 2/3 cup of school glue
  • 2/3 cup of shaving cream
  • Blue (Go Grizz!) or red (Go Hustle!) food coloring - optional
  • Glitter - optional


Step 1: Add the glue to a bowl.
Step 2: Add in the water and the baking soda, and then mix.
Step 3: Add in shaving cream, and then mix.
Step 4: Add a few drops of food coloring until you get your desired color.
Step 5: Slowly add in contact solution, and then knead.
Step 6: Add some glitter for some extra pizazz!

Note: The slime will be sticky as you knead it – that’s normal! To help, you can add some baby oil or some lotion to your hands.
