Whoever said that clouds only belong in the sky clearly never got their hands on some squishy, stretchable cloud slime! Today I’m excited to bring the fluffy wonder of the sky right down into your living room, or wherever you like to get crafty.

You’re going to make a type of slime that not only captures the imagination but also feels like you’re squishing a piece of cloud between your fingers (without the 30,000 feet altitude, of course).

Now, if you’re thinking this is just your run-of-the-mill slime, think again! We’re taking the slime experience up a notch with a twist. We’re adding fake snow to the mix for that extra fluffy, cloud-like texture.

And because we’re all about aesthetics here, a dash of blue food coloring will transform our slime into a mesmerizing, sky-colored concoction. It’s not just about making something gooey and stretchy; it’s about creating a slice of the sky that you can poke, prod, and stretch to your heart’s content.

This recipe uses just school glue, water, borax, and our magical ingredients: fake snow and blue food coloring.

Tips for Making Slime

If you’ve never made slime before, here are some great tips you might be interested in. If you don’t need them, head on down to the recipe.

Measure Ingredients Precisely

The key to perfect slime is in the details. Measuring your ingredients as accurately as possible can make the difference between slime that’s just right and a recipe that’s too sticky or too brittle.

Add Mix Ins Slowly

If you’re adding color, glitter, or other fun elements, add them slowly and mix thoroughly to see the effect. You can always add more, but you can’t take it out once it’s in there.

Adjust Texture as Needed

If your slime is too sticky, add a little more activator (like borax solution, liquid starch, or saline solution). If it’s too stiff, add more glue or a bit of water. Do this gradually!

Use Supplies You Don’t Mind Getting Messy

Slime can get everywhere, and while it’s usually easy to clean up, it’s best to use tools (bowls and utensils) and surfaces you’re not worried about.

Use Your Hands

Once the slime begins to form, use your hands to knead it. This helps improve the texture and mix everything evenly. Don’t be afraid to get a little messy!

Storage is Key

Keep your slime in an airtight container when not in use. This will help it last longer and prevent it from drying out.

Safety First

Always use safe, non-toxic ingredients, and if you’re crafting with younger kids, make sure they’re supervised, especially with ingredients like borax.
