Super Slippery Slime

Super slippery slime

you will need:


  • 1 cup soap flakes
  • 4 cups boiling water
  • Food colouring or dye (optional)
  • Large bowl and whisk


This wonderful sensory experience is fun for all ages; it is also easy to make and stores in a covered container for days.

  1. In your large bowl, mix the soap flakes and boiling water.
  2. Add the food colouring/dye if using.
  3. Whisk until the flakes have dissolved.
  4. Let stand for about one hour, stirring occasionally.
  5. When ready, the slime should have cooled down and thickened. It can then be poured onto a tray, ready to be played with.

Extra ideas:

• Practising letter recognition and writing can be made fun by placing the slime on a tray in a thin layer and writing letters (or numbers, shapes) in the slime.
• For a fun and silly afternoon activity, make several batches of slime, get dressed in your togs, lay a tarpaulin outside and pour the slime on top, then go sliding/slipping across the top. Then have fun hosing each other down afterwards.
