21 Fun Slime Recipes to Make at Home

21 Fun Slime Recipes – just the thing to turn a rainy day into a fun day. Slime can also be a cool activity to do when the kids have a birthday party, PA Day or even a sick day at home. These are some extremely unique slime recipes I found in various places and wanted to share.


Do you have children who watch Youtube or Instagram? Then you will know all about the slime craze happening right now. Making your own slime is all I have heard about this year since my youngest daughter started grade seven. Suddenly people were selling slime at school, and on the bus, and everyone was into the sensory play. Naturally my daughter had to get in on the action and make some too. Now it’s something we can make by heart actually. No recipe needed.

Unbelievably this year my daughter actually received a bunch of supplies from a friend to make slime. It was a birthday present. So birthday sleepover was spent making slime. We currently have about 5-6 different batches and colours here in the house. It is fun and provides great feedback for kids.

That said, I am looking forward to trying a few of these new slime recipes. The variations are what makes it fun! The one we typically make is very simple with shaving cream, glue and a few other items. I think that the Star Wars slime recipe sounds amazing and so does the Heat Sensitive Colour Changing Slime too.

    Where have I been? I’ve heard of slime, seen it, but did not realize that there is a big craze about kids wanting to make it. AND…I didn’t realize how few ingredients it took to make the slime and things that I already have in my home. The Chewed Bubble Gum Slime would be so EASY to make!

    Great post! Yesss, my kids are so into the slime….lol! I guess it is the new trend for kids. Some of these recipes I have never seen nor heard of before. I will bookmark this so I can share with the kids over the weekend. I want to try the Finding Dory Glitter Slime first myself

    I’m forever looking for fun ways to pass an afternoon when my grandson comes to visit. These I know he’ll love to make. He’s super into Star Wars .. so I’m sure we’ll be starting there and branching out once we master our slime making abilities!

    This is a GREAT list of slime recipes. Having three boys at home, this is sure to keep us busy. I’m going to LOVE creating some of these for family time and they are going to love getting their hands dirty!

    These are some great slime recipes. We did this a few years back when my kids were little and we were homeschooling. We got all the ingredients and did it for Science. It was the perfect day and now, years later, my daughter who is 19 still makes slime from time to time.

    Slime is such a great tool for kids! Having it on hand keeps their little hands busy and it really is so super simple to make at home with only a few ingredients. This is a great list!

    This is an awesome roundup. My daughter has been asking me, over and over again, to make slime and I keep saying no. Perhaps, I’ll use one of your recipes and say YES!

    Slime recipes have been all of the rage lately! I have to say that I haven’t stepped over the ledge to let the guys make slime here at home (maybe I’m worried about all of the mess). lol

    But I am starting to look for ideas to do over summer break, and slime will just have to make our bucket list! TY for all of these great slime recipes!
