How to Make Unicorn Slime
In a bowl or container, measure out ½ cup white glue.
Then add ½ cup shaving cream. Shaving cream can be a little tough to measure, so don't worry if you add a little extra.
Mix the shaving cream and glue together and add ½ cup of foaming hand wash to the mixture. Mix all the ingredients well. The slime will be super foamy at this point.
Add in ½ teaspoon of cornstarch and about ½ teaspoon of body lotion. These will help your slime stretch and be fluffy.
Next, add a few drops of food coloring. You want your slime to be pastel colored, so 1-2 drops should be enough.
Add glitter if you wish. This is optional, but if your kids love glitter as much as mine do, you'll want to make this slime very glittery. I just think it looks more magical with glitter.
Next, add in ½ teaspoon of baking soda. (Start with ½ of a teaspoon and add more during kneading if you need to.) Baking soda is what will thicken your slime up.
Finally, add in contact saline solution. Start with ¾ tablespoon. If you need to add a bit more, you can. Saline solution makes the slime less sticky. You will know you have enough, when the slime pulls away from the side of the bowl.
Knead the slime and set it to the side.
Repeat the process for the next 4 colors. You will have 5 colors in total: pink, purple, teal, yellow and white.
