Bonus Slime Recipes

Slime recipes for you to make at home

If your STEM Club scientist wants to explore even more slime types, you’re in luck! We have six additional slime variations you can make at home with just a few simple ingredients. Most require the same basic items like glue, baking soda, food coloring and saline solution, so if you’ve already made cloud slime you’ll have almost everything you need for our different recipes!

And it’s so much fun to see how a few new ingredients can change the nature of slime. The characteristics of each will be slightly different, allowing STEM Club scientists to conduct new experiments and make new observations and comparisons.

Six Kid-Tested Slime Recipes Included in Download

One of our favorite recipes is Bubble Slime. It’s a combination of bubble solution, clear glue, food coloring, baking soda and saline solution.

This one is really fun because it allows STEM Club scientists to test the size of bubble they can blow! If they want to start small, take a walnut size blob of slime and wrap it around the end of a straw. Blow gently on the other end and watch the bubble grow!

Another great choice is Giant Stretchy Slime. It’s almost exactly the same as Bubble Slime, but incorporates shaving foam and as a result becomes extremely stretchy. STEM Club Scientists can make long slime ropes or wide slime pizza crusts with this recipe.

Our Basic Goopy Slime is the same recipe as cloud slime, just without the instant snow powder, so the texture will be noticeably different. Putty Slime takes just three ingredients – white glue, baking soda and saline solution – and is much more thick and rubbery than any of our other slimes.

The final two options are Runny Slime (which we like to call Alien Snot) and Sand Slime. Runny Slime isn’t quite as gross as it might sound, we just like to put in neon green food coloring drops to give it that extraterrestrial look. Sand Slime adds a few tablespoons of National Geographic Play Sand to the mixture, dramatically changing the feel of the final batch of slime.

Of course, if you missed our slime activity dedicated to Cloud Slime, you should definitely check that out! There’s a free download for that activity, too.
