stretchy elastic slime, kids craft messy play idea, shaving foam and cornflour


This very messy activity makes a range of amazing sensory materials out of just a few ingredients which will keep kids busy all day. We started making a magical moldable foam, added coloured liquid to make a slippery goo then added more cornflour to make an elastic slime. After a few hours, the slime dried to create a springy putty which was stretchy but moldable.

Time: Several hours of fun
Age: Any Age
Level: Easy

Materials
Shaving foam
Cornflour
Plain flour
Squeezy bottles
Food colouring
Shallow container

Method
Sprinkle cornflour into the bottom of a shallow container. Squeeze on some shaving foam and get stuck in with your hands.

It felt slippery and fluffy


Put a few spoonfuls of cornflour into some squeezy bottles. Add a little water and a capful of food colouring into each bottle until you have a thick coloured liquid. Let kids squirt the coloured liquids over the foamy mixture and play again with spoons or hands.

Add plain flour until you have a thick stretchy slime. Have fun lifting it and watching it slide.

It was also fun to swirl the mix with popsicle sticks


Leave the mixture for a few hours until it dries to form a moldable putty. Ours was like an incredible elastic play dough which would stretch and slide but could be rolled and molded.
