These slime recipe ideas are fun variations of the popular fluffy slime with shaving cream with added sparkles, scent and fluffiness.

Updated June 2023

We don’t know about your household, but many slime recipes have been tried and tweaked in ours over the years. And our fluffy slime recipe is one of our most popular posts!

We suspect that many of your kids are just as crazy about making slime fluffy with shaving cream.

If you’re looking for some extra FUN fluffy slime recipes, here are some variations you might enjoy.

All of these fluffy slime recipes have the same basic ingredients—shaving cream, glue, contact solution. (One of them is a no-borax slime, the others have minute amounts of borax.*) What makes them fun and different are the themes, colors, sprinkles, sparkles, and extra fluffiness.

*If you want to read more about whether or not to use borax, here’s an article on borax safety and slime on The Chronicle Flask that is worth a read.
