One of my daughters loves camo anything. She wears it, doodles it, dreams it. So I thought it would be fun to make this cool camo fluffy slime with her. There are so many fun play options with this camo fluffy slime recipe. It also makes a great party favour for birthday parties too. When my middle son was younger, he had an army theme birthday party and I wish I’d had this recipe back then.
Camo Fluffy Slime Recipe:
- 2 cups white school glue (I find that Elmer’s school glue works the best for slime recipes.)
- 2 cups foaming hand wash
- 2 cups shaving cream
- 2 tsp. lotion
- 2 tsp. cornstarch
- green paint
- darker green paint
- tan paint
- black paint
- 2 tsp. baking soda
- 4 Tbsp. contact solution
- optional: toy soldiers
- Pour 2 cups of white glue in a large bowl.
- Add 2 cups of foaming hand wash.
- Scoop in 2 cups of shaving cream.
- Mix with a spatula until smooth.
- Divide this mixture into 4 smaller bowls.
- Into each of the bowls, add ½ tsp. each of lotion and cornstarch. Mix.
- Using the paint, tint each bowl a different colour. You will end up with a green, dark green, tan and black.
- Add ½ tsp. baking soda to each of the bowls and stir.
- Lastly, add 1 Tbsp. of contact solution to each and stir until it pulls away from the side of the bowl. It is best to do this full step on each bowl before moving on to the next.
- Knead the slimes until they are no longer sticky.
- Once all of the slimes are kneaded, stretch your slimes out and then combine them into one blob.
- If you want to, you can add in some plastic toy soldiers.
At first, the slime will have that marbled camouflage look but of course, eventually with play, the colours will combine. When this happens, your slime should turn an army green which is also a lot of fun.
By kneading and stretching, pulling, pinching, and squishing, kids will engage their proprioceptive sensory system with this slime. It also involves their visual and tactile sensory systems.
