What kind of clay do you use for butter slime?

Let’s make this fun and easy butter slime recipe.

Everyone will enjoy making this easy and fun kids craft. This diy slime only takes a few steps to make and then kids can play with it.

Ingredients for DIY: glue, lotion, shaving cream, clay and contact solution.
Modeling clay

DIY Clay slime ingredients:

  • ½ Cup of White school Glue 
  • 1 Tablespoon Contact Lens Solution (Must contain boric acid so the slime activator will work. Plain saline solution is not the same.)
  • ½ Cup of Foam Shaving Cream
  • 1 oz of Model Magic Clay 
  • 1 tsp Lotion (as needed)

How to make Butter Slime:

  • First, in a small mixing bowl, combine the glue and shaving cream until it’s well combined.

  • Next, slowly stir in the contact lens solution until the slime is formed. Make sure that you are using a brand that has boric acid in the solution or it will not work.
  • While mixing, once the white glue starts to pull away from the bowl and stick to the spoon, remove the slime from the bowl and knead with your hands. This step will help make the slime soft and pliable.

  • Then place the model magic clay in the center of your slime. Mix with your hands until well combined and the slime changes the color to the color of the model magic clay that you chose. Kids love to choose the color of clay and watch it turn the slime that same color.

  • Then add lotion to make the slime more stretchy.  We added a small amount (1 tsp) and mixed it in with our hands until the slime was stretchy. You might even want to start with ½ teaspoon because you can always add more.
  • If you want your slime more stretchy, mix in more lotion until the slime is consistency that you desire. I would add the lotion gradually a little at a time. You don’t want to add too much but you can always add more.

How to store homemade butter slime:

I like to store the slime in a mason jar or ziploc baggie to keep it fresh. You can use what you prefer so that you don’t air dry clay. The slime definitely needs to be stored inside an airtight container so that it stays soft and does not harden.

This slime is so fun to make to make and play with. The texture is soft and smooth just like butter.

If stored properly, it will stay soft and provide many hours of fun.
