Thank you Elmer’s for sponsoring this post. All opinions expressed are my own.
We are still slime crazy at our house and creating even more fun Halloween themed slime recipes. If you’re just joining in the slime craze it can be a little overwhelming because there are SO many different recipes available online. Borax, Contact Solution, Liquid Starch..where do you start? What I’ve found is the easiest way to begin is by purchasing an Elmer’s Slime Kit, with a slime kit you already have everything you need in one convenient package so there’s no need for a shopping list! And best of all with Elmer’s Slime Kits there’s no need to worry about Borax or liquid starch because Elmer’s Slime Kits are kid friendly! Once you’re ready to venture onto more slime recipes you can start changing the texture like we did with this Fluffy Candy Corn Slime by adding in some shaving cream to your mixture. The fluffy slime texture is amazing and so much soft, stretchy, fun!
Get ready to make batch after batch, because this slime is so addicting! If you are looking for more slime inspiration visit Elmers.com/slime.
Fluffy Candy Corn Slime Recipe For Kids
SUPPLIES NEEDED FOR FLUFFY CANDY CORN SLIME:
- 1/2 Cup Elmer’s White Glue
- Unscented Shaving Cream
- Orange and Yellow Food Coloring
- Saline Solution
- Arm & Hammer Baking Soda
- Candy Corn Scented Oil optional
*Your results will vary if you substitute ingredients, and in some cases, slime might not form at all. Of special importance is the use of Elmer’s White Glue for quality, stretchy slime! I recommend buying the 1 Gallon because making slime once is never enough!
1.Add 1/2 cup of Elmer’s white school glue and 3-4 cups of shaving cream to a bowl. Mix well and then add in a some drops of your orange food coloring. Stir to mix in the color. Optional: You can add in a few drops of candy corn scented oil after you mix in the food coloring.
2. Next stir in 1/4 tsp of Arm & Hammer Baking Soda. Then add contact solution about 1 Tablespoon at a time and mix.
3. Keep adding a little more contact solution and mixing until your slime begins forming into a ball-like form as you mix. You’ll notice this is when it starts to turn into slime and becomes less sticky. It will begin coming off the sides of your container and sticking together.
4. If slime is too sticky, add 1/4 TBSP contact solution to the mixture. The slime will become significantly less sticky.
5. Repeat these steps using yellow food coloring and one with no food coloring so that you have your orange, yellow, and white slime to mix together.
Once you’ve finished all your colors you can combine the 3 colors together to finish your candy corn slime. Now the kids are ready for some sensory playtime fun! Stretch, squeeze, and play with your new slime!
Tip: the contact solution must contain boric acid as an active ingredient. Contact solution is a diuretic so please don’t let young kids handle it and ensure your child washes their hands after playing with the slime as a precaution.
