How to make cloud slime step by step:

  • First, put the white glue in a small mixing bowl.
  • Then, stir in the food coloring if you want your slime to be colored. This is completely optional.

    If you prefer that the slime resemble snow, just leave out the food coloring. We have made it both ways so just do what you prefer. Today, we made the cloud slime blue for a change and it turned out so pretty.

Pro Tips

  • You can mix the food coloring in with the glue or the instant snow whichever you prefer.  Just do what is easiest for you.
  • Buy the white school glue in gallon size containers if you plan to make a lot of slime. You will save money and not have to buy a bunch of small glue jars. If you have kids that love to make slime, you definitely need to just buy the large size.

How long does slime last?

It will last a few weeks but the texture might change some. Try to keep it clean and free of debris so it will last as long as possible.

How to store cloud slime?

Store the slime in an airtight container. You can use either a plastic or glass container.

We have even used mason jars before. Just anything that will prevent the slime from spilling or drying out.

It is important to store slime properly or it will dry out and harden quickly. The texture will no longer be soft and fluffy to play with.
