Oh SLIME. Me and this stuff have a love hate/relationship. My kids love it though, so I’ve learned to accept it ;)


If you’ve ever wondered how to make fluffy slime, this recipe is seriously the best ever! We love it because it only takes 3 ingredients and takes less than 5 minutes to make. My kids asked Alexa how to make it and this is the recipe it gave us. The kids love helping me make it and it entertains them for hours! It is so soft and squishy!

During our Spring break last week it was cold and rainy, so this was the perfect indoor activity for my kids to do. It’s actually less messy than my original slime recipe too (yay for less messes). It  holds together more which is great! My kids like this fluffy slime the best because it is squishier and can stretch further. The consistency is perfect.

Fluffy slime ingredients

For this slime you only need 3 simple ingredients (that you can probably find around your home). I love that this fluffy slime is made without borax. You can also add any color you’d like (or even mix them).

  • 1 (4-ounce) bottle Elmer’s glue
  • 2 Tablespoons contact saline solution
  • 1 – 2 cups shaving cream
  • Food coloring, optional

How to make fluffy slime

To get started place the glue in a plastic bowl. If you’re adding food coloring, add it now. Once it is your desired color add the saline solution and mix until combined. Then stir in 1-2 cups of shaving cream. The more you add the thicker it will be. The less you add the slimier it will be. We usually end up adding about 1 1/2 cups. Stir until you can no longer stir and then kneed it with your hand. It will be sticky at first, but keep moving it with your hands until it is no longer sticky and is the right consistency.

We made our first batch of fluffy slime pink and then the next one purple. Then my daughter thought it would be fun to mix the two and I love how it turned out!

To make this fluffy slime with more than one color, simply make another batch and then lay then right next to each other. Then stretch it out and twist it together so the colors swirl together. It will end up looking something like this.

Hope you enjoyed this tutorial. Have fun and get creative with colors!

  1. I love this idea! I have been looking for an idea like this for some time now! I don’t want it to stick to things but I still want it to be slightly sticky (if that makes sense) I will be trying this recipe out for sure!

  2. No offense but it doesn’t do anything it stays like shaving cream.

  3. Add borax and it works i got mad but then i added bprak and it worked😀

  4. We don’t wear contacts – so is there a substitute for the contact solution?

  5. Just made it with my daughter. She loved it! It is super easy and cleans up well with warm water.
