Fluffy Slime Troubleshooting Tips:
You’ll need to use contact solution as the activator to create the right texture for your slime. Otherwise, the glue and shaving cream will just be a big blob of goo.
If your slime isn’t fluffy enough, try to fold in some extra shaving cream.
If the slime isn’t stretchy after a few days of playing with it, you can add a bit of hot tap water or a small amount of lotion to it.
Or if the slime is too sticky, add a drop or two more contact solution or a small bit of baby oil and knead.
These troubleshooting tips should help you to get the right consistency with your slime.Looking for more easy sensory play recipes to inspire creativity? Join us for a five day email series on Sensory Activities and Solutions and get a free sample of our Sensory Play Recipes eBook.
