Birthday Cake Slime Recipe
Slime is a fun activity for preschoolers. Preschoolers can help pour and mix the ingredients, or you can make it ahead of time.
If you’d like to use this birthday slime as a party favor, you can store it in mine mason jars or large baby food jars. Then, just tie a tag around it, and let party guests take them home.
What You’ll Need
• 1 airtight container
• 1 c. white glue
• 1 cup shaving cream
• 1 c. foaming hand wash
• 1 tsp body lotion
• ¾ tsp. baking soda
• 1 Tbsp contact lens solution
What You’ll Do
In a bowl, measure out 1 cup of white glue. You may need a small spatula to help scrape out the cup.
Add 1 cup shaving cream. Shaving cream is a little funky to measure so a little extra won’t hurt it!
Mix together and add 1 cup of foaming hand wash.
Mix well. Your slime should be super foamy.
Add in 1 tsp of cornstarch and about 1 tsp of body lotion. These will help your slime stretch and be fluffy.
Add in brown paint until you get the perfect chocolate color.
Pour in a few multi-colored foam beads. You don’t want a ton as these are just the ‘sprinkles’ and don’t want it to turn into a crunchy slime or foam, but add to your heart’s desire.
Drop a few drops of chocolate fragrance oil in. Your slime will smell just like a delicious cake – and it looks like a fluffy blob of funfetti icing! While it smells and looks, make sure it is not tasted!
Next add in ¾ – 1 tsp of baking soda. (Start with ¾ of a tsp and add more during kneading if you need to. Baking soda is what will thicken your slime up.)
Finally, add in contact saline solution. Start with 1 tbsp. If you need to add a bit more, you can. Saline solution makes the slime less sticky. You will know you have enough when the slime pulls away from the side of the bowl.
Knead the slime until it’s the consistency you desire, and store in an airtight container.
