Butter slime is a super squishy, stretchy, soft slime that is so fun to play with! Here is how to make butter slime and have a ton of fun!
Years ago my middle son became a huge fan of slime. He tried all the combinations and made some interesting concoctions!
However, he never made butter slime.
We just recently learned that butter slime existed, and since my youngest son is now a slime fanatic we knew we needed to try it!
Butter slime doesn’t involve actual butter so don’t worry, it’s not going to create a greasy mess! It is just a basic slime recipe that is then blended with super soft clay to create a slime that is squishy, soft, stretchy, and buttery smooth… hence the name.
We looked at a lot of recipes when we were figuring out how to make this slime. Some recipes call for Model Magic and I think that it would work ok for this. However, we ordered a soft Japanese clay from Amazon.
They are similar in texture but the Japnese clay is softer and fluffier than Model Magic so it blends into the slime really easily and creates a really nice texture.
If you have Model Magic and want to create butter slime with it, check out the recipe on Crayola’s site. It is a little different than what I’m sharing here and probably going to give you a better result.
Here’s How to Make Butter Slime-
1/2- Cup White Glue (Elmer’s school glue is the best)
1/2- Cup Water
1/2- tsp Baking Soda
1- Tbsp. Saline Contact Solution
2 oz. Package of Japanese Clay
The first thing you’ll want to do is mix your glue and water in a mixing bowl until well mixed.
Then add in your baking soda and mix it in.
After you’ve mixed the baking soda in well slowly add in your contact solution, while continuously stirring. It will start to pull away from the sides and turn into slime.
No mush and mash in your clay kneading it into the slime until it is completely mixed in.
Once the clay is all mixed in your butter slime is finished! Now you can squish and squash it until your heart’s content.
When you’re done playing you can store it in an airtight container to keep it fresh.
