Are your kids excited about the fact that Toy Story 4 is coming out in June? We can’t wait for the new movie, and to help us pass the time until it comes, we have been be making some toy story themed slime. This Army Man Toy Story Slime is based on the green army men from Toy Story that have become so popular. It would be a great party favor for a Toy Story themed party, or if you are feeling more adventurous, you can make it with the kids at the party.
Army Man Toy Story Slime
Ingredients for making slime:
4 containers or cups
Popsicle sticks or spoons
2 cups white glue
2 cups shaving cream
2 cups foaming hand wash
2 tsp lotion
2 tsp cornstarch
Darker green paint
2 tsp baking soda
4 tbsp contact solution
Green army men toys
How to make Army Man Toy Story Slime:
To make this slime, pour 2 cups of white glue and 2 cups of foaming hand wash into a large bowl.
Next, pour 2 cups of shaving cream into the bowl. Shaving cream can be tricky to measure, so try and get as close to the measurement as you can. A little extra won’t hurt.
Mix the ingredients in the bowl until smooth, and divide the mixture into 4 smaller cups.
Add ½ teaspoon of lotion and 1/2 teaspoon of cornstarch to each cup and mix.
Use the paint to color each cup a different color. You will have a green, darker green, tan and black. Add more of the paint to get a deeper color. Stir until the color is completely mixed.
Now add ½ teaspoon of baking soda to each colored cup and stir.
Finally, add 1 tablespoon of contact solution to each cup and stir until the slime pulls away from the side of the bowl. (I recommend adding this to one cup at a time, stirring and then moving on!)
Knead each of the slime colors separately until the slime is no longer sticky. You will now be left with 4 colors of slime.
Once all of the slime is kneaded, you can stretch out your slime, lay it on a flat surface and twist to combine the colors.
Adding some army men toys to the slime makes it even more fun!
As your kids play with this Army Man Toy Story Slime, the color will start to change as the four colors combine.
Once mixed, your slime should turn an army green/grey.
This slime can be stored in an airtight container if your kids don’t want to play with it right away. After noticing my kids leaving slime everywhere and finding lots of messes, I purchased these containers and they have been a life saver.
If you are looking for more fun ways to engage your kids, I highly recommend KiwiCo. As a former teacher, I was really impressed with the quality of materials found in KiwiCo. Some moms have told me that they want to do activities like I do on Mess For Less with their kids, but they just don’t have to the time to go buy all the supplies and prepare them for the activity. KiwiCo is the perfect solution. Every month your KiwiCo will focus on a particular theme like Colors, Dinosaurs or Gardening. KiwiCo offer a variety of projects ranging from crafts, imaginative play, science experiments and more.
