Picture snow falling from a cloud, and you’ll get the jist of cloud slime! When you pick up a handful of cloud slime and let it fall back to the table, instead of pouring out of your fingers like a waterfall as regular slime would, cloud slime does something similar to snow falling from a cloud. The strange but amazing texture of this slime is very similar to kinetic sand. See below for the recipe!
- 5 oz of Elmer’s glue (one bottle)
- ¼ teaspoon borax powder (sodium tetraborate- can be found in the laundry section of a store)
- 1 cup warm water
- Food coloring (optional)
- Glitter (optional)
- Shaving foam
- Instant snow (start with ½ cup)
1. Pour ½ bottle or a full bottle of glue into a bowl (depending on how much slime you want to make) and mix with around a ¼ cup of water. (This is needed to make the glue more mixable).
2. In a separate bowl, mix ¼ teaspoon of borax powder into ½ cup of warm water. Mix well. This is called activator, because this is what makes the glue turn into slime!
3. Add food coloring if you would like, and then add shaving foam to the glue mixture. The more shaving foam you add, the fluffier your slime will be. Mix well.
4. Add in your activator to the glue mixture 1 teaspoon at a time until you reach your desired texture. Make sure to stir often. Be careful not to add too much activator, or your slime will become too firm!
5. In a separate bowl, activate your Instant Snow using hot water. Fluff up your Instant Snow, and add your slime to it. Knead until it is well mixed.
