Make Your Own - Fluffy Unicorn Slime

This recipe makes the most amazingly stretchy fluffy slime, the texture is as soft as a cloud.

You can store it for up to a week in an airtight container. The fluffiness created by using shaving foam does go flat after a day or so, leaving it more like regular slime after that time.



1/2 cup white PVA glue
1/2 cup shaving cream
1/2 teaspoon borax powder
1 cup water
Your choice of food colouring

In a cup, mix the borax and the water until dissolved. You only need a little of this, but it needs to be diluted first.

In a separate bowl, mix the PVA glue and the shaving cream with a spoon.

Add one teaspoon of the borax water into the bowl and stir. Knead it with your hands until combined. If it is too sticky, add a tiny little bit more of the borax mixture and combine again.

Separate into smaller amounts, and add a drop or two of different food colouring to each.

Mixing the colours together could be fabulous or gross, half the fun is finding out!


If you prefer not to use borax to activate the slime, you can substitute with buffered saline solution. If you are allergic to borax, shaving cream or glue, it is not recommended that you make this slime.

The small amount of borax in this recipe is not absorbed through the skin. While a large amount of it would have to be ingested in order to be toxic, it is not recommended for children under 4 or those who may feel compelled to put it in their mouth. If it is ingested, call Poison Information Centre on 13 11 26.
