Slime Recipe

This method makes a ball of flexible slime close to silly putty in texture. It stays clean in your hands, making it a good choice for little kids.

Makes 1 small ball
Takes 10 minutes

  • 100ml PVA white glue

  • ½ tsp bicarbonate of soda

  • gel food colouring

  • 1 tsp contact lens cleaning solution

  • glitter (optional)


1. Squeeze the glue into a mixing bowl (look for a bottle in a 100ml size if possible so you won’t have to measure it out). Add the bicarbonate of soda and mix well.

2. Add a drop or two of your chosen gel food colouring. Less colouring gives a pastel colour; the more you add, the brighter the colour. Mix until well incorporated.

3. Add the contact lens solution and mix. The slime will begin to form, going stringy before coming away clean from the bowl into a ball.

4. Once it has formed, take it out and knead it with your hands. It will be sticky at first but after about 30 seconds you’ll have a smooth and pliable ball. Add glitter at this point, if desired, and work in with your hands.


Store in a pot with a lid.

Basic Uncooked Playdough

  • Bowl

  • 1 cup cold water

  • 1 cup salt

  • 2 teaspoons vegetable oil

  • Tempera paint or food coloring

  • 3 cups flour

  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch


  1. In bowl, mix water, salt, oil, and enough tempera paint or food coloring to make a bright color.

  2. Gradually add flour and cornstarch until the mixture reaches the consistency of bread dough.

  3. Store covered.

Fluffy Sheep


  • Cotton balls

  • Polyball (70mm/30mm)

  • Wiggle eyes

  • Glue/scissors

  • Cocktail sticks/skewers

  • Funky foam – black


  1. Draw a little sheep head on funky foam and cut this out. Glue on two wiggle eyes.

  2. Glue cotton balls onto a polyball. We used two different sizes here to make a Mummy and baby sheep.

  3. Insert four cocktail sticks or skewers into the body of the sheep to make the legs. Firm pipecleaners would also do for these.

  4. Finally, glue the face onto the front and your fluffy sheep is complete!
