To make cloud slime similar to ours you’ll need the following. We’ve linked them on Amazon to help you out. This is just plain cloud slime so feel free to add color and scent to yours. You can also adjust the quantity by dividing or multiplying the recipe.

Adult supervision is recommended.


Elmer’s Liquid School Glue, Washable, 1 Gallon

20 Mule Team All Natural Borax Laundry Detergent

SnoWonder Instant Snow

Glycerin Vegetable Pharmaceutical Grade

Lubriderm Daily Moisture Hydrating Unscented Body Lotion

JR Watkins Foaming Hand Soap Refill Pouch



Makes approximately 30 quarts of cloud slime.  You’ll mix all the ingredients together in a large mixer.  The most common mistake is not enough instant snow so don’t be shy.

Elmer’s Glue – 1 Gallon
Water – 1 Gallon (you may need more as you go – up to another 1/2 gallon)
Activator – (1 qt of hot water with 2.5 tbsp of Borax)
Instant Snow – 4-5 cups
Glycerin – 1/2 cup
Lotion – 24 oz
Foaming Hand Soap – 1/2 cup
