Slimes are a great sensory activity for kids. There are many slime recipes out there. I wanted to showcase some of the most unique slime recipes. I’m sure you will find these as cool as your kids will find them!
My kids, in particular my girls, are always on the lookout for cool new slime recipes. My kitchen has so many plastic containers and resealable bags full of slime variations!
My girls scour the internet and Pinterest searching for the latest and greatest, which is one of the reasons that I decided to put this list together and have it all in one place.
Unique Slime Recipes:
Spider Web Slime – There’s a “secret” slime ingredient in this one that makes it look like a spider web.
Diaper Slime – This recipe from Sugar, Spice and Glitter has got to be about the most unique slime out there. It gets its fluffiness from the crystals in disposable diapers!
Glow in the Dark Slime with Glitter – Anything glow in the dark is just plain fun!
Super Stretchy No Borax Slime – What makes this slime recipe from STEAM Powered Kids so different is that it doesn’t use Borax, liquid starch or detergent.
