How to make homemade slime


It’s wildly popular with the kids and if you haven’t made a batch of this yet you probably will soon! Here’s our DIY Slime recipe:


  • Elmer’s Glue
  • Shaving Cream
  • Borax
  • Food Coloring
  • Lotion


  1. Pour 1 bottle of glue into a bowl (we used a large bottle)
  2. Next, add shaving cream (the more you add the larger your slime)
    and stir well
  3. Add a few drops of food coloring (whatever color you like or leave it white) and mix well
  4. Add borax mixture slowly until it starts to come together like slime. (1 tablespoon borax mixed with warm water)
  5. Add lotion at the end to help it become smooth and not so sticky
