Tutorial Tuesday: DIY Cloud Slime

Get ready for a magical and squishy adventure as we dive into the world of Cloud Slime! For today's Tutorial Tuesday, we'll guide you through creating your very own Cloud Slime using simple ingredients. This slime makes for a delightful sensory play experience for children and adults alike. Let's gather our materials and get ready to make Cloud Slime that will captivate your senses and ignite your imagination!

Cloud Slime Ingredients:

  • 1/2 Cup of Washable PVA School Glue (White is recommended)
  • 3 Cups of Foaming Shaving Cream
  • 1/2 Tsp of Baking Soda
  • Food Coloring
  • 1 Tbsp of Alternative Activator (Saline Solution, Borax Slime, or Liquid Starch Slime)

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1: Measure the shaving cream and add color:

  • Begin by measuring 3 heaped cups of foaming shaving cream into a bowl. You can experiment with different amounts for varied textures and effects.
  • Add 5 to 6 drops of your preferred food coloring. Let your creativity shine by choosing from a wide range of colors to create your unique Cloud Slime!

Step 2: Combine the glue and shaving cream:

  • Add 1/2 cup of washable PVA school glue to the bowl of shaving cream and gently mix them together. This will form the base of our fluffy Cloud Slime.

Step 3: Incorporate the baking soda:

  • Sprinkle in 1/2 tsp of baking soda into the mixture and continue mixing. The baking soda helps firm up the slime and gives it a desired texture.

Step 4: Choose your activator and add it to the mixture:

  • Select your preferred activator: Saline Solution, Borax Slime, or Liquid Starch Slime. Use 1 tablespoon of your chosen activator and start incorporating it into the mixture while stirring continuously.
  • If the slime appears too sticky, add a few more drops of the activator until it reaches the desired consistency.

Note: Be cautious not to add excessive activator as it can result in an over-activated slime with a rubbery texture. Adjust accordingly and remember that the consistency improves with kneading.

Step 5: Get hands-on and knead the Cloud Slime:

  • Once the mixture is thoroughly whipped and incorporated, remove it from the bowl and start kneading with your hands. Feel the fluffiness and experience the captivating texture of your Cloud Slime.

Tip: Before handling the slime, squirt a few drops of activator solution on your hands to prevent sticking.

Suggestion: Get creative and repeat the Cloud Slime recipe using different colors. You can also enjoy the batch you've made and explore the endless possibilities of fluffy fun. Feel free to experiment with larger quantities by tripling or adjusting the recipe to suit your preferences!

Congratulations on successfully creating your very own Cloud Slime!
