Making slime is a cheap and fun activity that continues to spark curiosity and engross teens and kids alike. The slime craze has become so widespread that your local superstores are rushing to stock on glue since it is the essential ingredient used in the preparation of slime. Sliming is a very easy way to keep your kids working with their hands and away from electronics for hours. The entire process of making slime is a fun science experiment, and you can add more or less of any ingredient to produce a vastly different result. The secret is to play around with the ingredients until you come up with the recipe you love. Just like art, slime is subjective. People like different degrees of sliminess, stickiness, and textures. To help you get started, we’ve outlined some add-in ingredients to slime that you might want to try out in search of your perfect combination.
Jelly foam is the primary ingredient in the creation of fluffy slime. Slimers have termed slime mixed with foam chunks as “floam”. You might have had a slimy bizarre toy when you were younger that you used to squish and squeeze–we’re talking about something like that. Mixing foam in slime is barely a new trend in the world of slime. The tiny white chunks make it interesting to listen to the sounds produced when you squish it. You can stretch the floam into some form of spider web or make it into a ball and bounce it. One popular slime birthed from the floam trend is bubble gum slime. This is typically a light pink slime with several ripped up foam cubes, which gives off the appearance of chewed up bubble gum.
