Simple Slime 1

The easiest slime to make only uses 2 ingredients (you can add extras to make the slime more special)

You will need:

  • Cornflour
  • Water
  • You can use glitter, food colouring and extract flavourings if you wish

How to make it: 

Start with 2 parts cornflour and 1 part water, mix and add more of one or the other to change the consistency until you are happy with it. That's it - I told you it was simple! If you want to add colour or glitter now is the time.

Simple Slime 2

What you will need:

  • PVA Glue
  • Cornflour

How to make it:

Simple - mix the 2 ingredients together!

Glitter Slime

Beautiful, sparkly slime!

You will need:

  • 3/4 cup Liquid starch (find it in the laundry aisle)
  • 1/2 cup Glitter Glue
  • 1/2 cup Water

How to make it:

Mix the glue and glitter glue together. Pour in the liquid starch in and mix. Use your hands to mix, and then knead it for a few minutes until it is no longer sticky.

Edible Slime

You will need:

  • 3 sachets Fybogel 
  • Water

How to make it:

Mix together, heat in a saucepan. Once it thickens pour into a dish and pop in the fridge to cool.

No Cook Slime

You will need:

  • 1 Cup PVA Glue
  • 1 tsp Bicarbonate of soda
  • Contact ba2de910ca70ed1a0774428fbfd93d03.jpglens solution - the ingredients must include boric acid for it to work.
  • 1/2 Cup Shaving foam

How to make it:

Mix the glue, bicarbonate of soda and shaving foam together. Add food colouring if you want to. Add the contact lens solution drop by drop mixing continuously, until it is the consistency you want. Tip out and knead well. If it is too sticky add more contact lens solution. Adding extra shaving foam now will make the slime fluffier!

Adult Supervision Required - Borax Slime

You will need:

  • Borax (which is the activator, but is a chemical - don't let it come into contact with skin!) buy on Ebay!
  • PVA glue a cup full - tesco seems to be the best place to buy 600ml for £3.50
  • Shaving foam (if you want the slime to be fluffy) Tesco value 50p a can!
  • A cup of water

How to make it:

Start off with pouring the cup of glue into a bowl. Then cover the top of the glue with a layer of shaving foam or 3 seconds worth of squirting. Add 1 teaspoon of the borax in to the cup of water and stir until dissolved, then add a couple of spoons at a time of the borax water solution to the glue and shaving foam mixture, stirring with a spoon or with your hands. You can then add colour to the slime with either paint or food colouring!

Face Mask Slime

You will need:

  • Peel off c587863df871452966a969032f6799fa.jpgface masks (needs to show polyvinyl alcohol in the ingredients) - you may need 5 or 6 of these to make a good amount of slime!
  • borax
  • cup of water

How to make:

Mix all of the face masks togther in a bowl. Add 1 teaspoon of the borax in to the cup of water and stir until dissolved. Add a couple of spoons at a time of the borax water solution into the bowl and mix in with either a spoon or your hands.
