Making cloud slime is a gooey, sticky and fun way for children to become STEM Club scientists! This strange substance is hard to describe, because sometimes it feels like a liquid, and other times it feel like a solid. Why? We will share some slime science to help kids understand these strange slime characteristics.

Creating cloud slime is just the beginning because its astounding properties will inspire even more experimentation! Making slime is also a fantastic opportunity to learn some basic science principles and skills, including measurement, following instructions, sensory observation, and the scientific process. There will be questions while making cloud slime, and we have resources with many of the answers.

Cloud Slime Ingredients

  • White glue

  • Water

  • Baking soda

  • Food coloring

  • Saline solution (look for it near the eye drops)

  • Instant snow powder

You may have most of these cloud slime ingredients at home already. The only special ingredient you will need is instant snow powder, which you can find at your local mega market, craft shop, or online.
