One of my girls’ favourite things to play with is homemade slime. They love the texture of it, they love to squish it in their hands, they love to hide little toys in it, and they love to make it with me! We’ve been trying all sorts of DIY slime recipes together this summer, and this fluffy unicorn slime is our ultimate favourite slime to make.
What makes this slime “unicorny”, you ask? It’s the combo of the trio of pastel colours, the additional glitter and the magical way it feels like a big ball of marshmallows!
Shaving cream makes this slime feel super duper fluffy, but it still spreads and stretches.
If you don’t like using borax to make your slimes, you can use a combination of baking soda and eye drops instead, but we have the most success with borax in our slime recipes. It makes our slime less sticky and more stretchy and fun to play with.
Here’s how to make this fluffy unicorn slime:
- 1 tsp borax
- 1 cup warm water
- ½ cup white glue
- 2 cups shaving cream
- 1-3 drops food colouring
- iridescent glitter
- 1 tsp eye drops
- Dissolve 1 tsp of borax in 1 cup of warm water and set aside.
- In a large bowl, mix together the white glue and shaving cream. Add 1-3 drops of food colouring and a couple of Tbsp of glitter if desired. Mix together.
- Mix in the borax solution, 1 tsp at a time, until the mixture pulls completely away from the sides of the bowl. Knead in 1 tsp of eye drop solution, and continue kneading the slime until it's smooth and stretch, but not sticky.
- Store the slime in an air tight container for up to 1 week.
