Our Slime Lab is back with a tried and tested recipe for Fluffy Snow Slime. This slime is based on our Fluffy Slime recipe, with a little extra sparkle that kids love.
Fluffy Snow Slime Ingredients
Elmer’s School Glue – 1/2 cup (120 ml) or a 4 ounce bottle. This glue is my favorite for all kids art and craft activities. If your kids love making slime, splurge for the gallon!
Baking Soda – 1 teaspoon (5 ml)
Contact Solution with boric acid as an ingredient – 1 tablespoon (15 ml) (<< this brand works!)
Shaving Cream – 3 cups (750 ml) (<<this brand works!)
Steps for Fluffy Snow Slime
Step 1: Add shaving cream to a bowl. Don’t worry about exact amounts. This recipe is forgiving and a little more or less will be fine.
Step 2: Add Elmer’s School Glue to the Bowl
Step 3: Add baking soda to the bowl.
Step 4: Mix everything together
Step 5: Add 1 tablespoon (15 ml) contact solution to the bowl. Mix it all together!
Step 6: Flatter the slime into a pancake. Sprinkle or pour the desired amount of glitter over the slime. Gently work the glitter into the slime. Add more glitter to reach the desired effect.

Why is Slime so Popular?
Not only is it fun to play with, it’s fun to watch others play with it, too. This interesting article talks about Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response (ASMR) as one of the reasons we love slime so much. It’s just relaxing! The rise of the Slime Economy, NPR
