Glitter Slime Recipes 

One of the most impressive slime recipes for kids is a simple glitter slime. You can use a glitter glue to “cheat” or brave the tricky craft staple. Psst: we love using glitter in our slime and it stay contained in the slime.

Tangled Glitter Slime 

This Tangled movie night Rapunzel glitter slime holds a special place in my heart. It was the first slime recipe my daughter wanted to share with you all here on Ruffles and Rain Boots. It’s a simple recipe with powerful shine and gloss.

Butter Slime Recipe

We have tried – and failed – more times with this particular slime than any other. Is it workable? Yes. Does it last? Not very long.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Butter Slime Recipe

That being said, this Teenage Mutant Butter Slime was absolutely the hit of a playdate and lasted about 2 hours with rough and tough play. The kids loved it!

Fluffy Slime Recipes

Fluffy slime recipes rely on a poofing agent – yes, I just made that up. The easiest additive is shaving foam (not gel) and we love the texture of this slime.

Moana Slime with Coconut 

The scent isn’t the only amazing this about this Moana fluffy slime recipe! It’s ridiculously easy to put together and has a texture like no other slime.

Make this ooey-gooey, oh-so-awesome coconut fluffy slime recipe as part of a Moana movie night or Moana birthday party. It's a crowd pleaser!

We used our basic fluffy slime, added in expanded water beads, and laughed hysterically for an hour when playing with this fun Inside Out slime.
