How to Make Floam

I can't wait for you to make this craft!

Kids love things that are squishy and much like slime, floam is a lot of fun to make and even more fun to play with.

Grab your suppllies!

– 1 cup Elmer’s Glue in clear or white – ½ teaspoon baking soda – 3 cups shaving cream (like Barbasol) – 1 to 2 cups rainbow foam beads – 1 tablespoon contact lens solution (containing boric acid)

Empty the glue into a large bowl. Whisk in the shaving cream. Add the baking soda to the glue mixture and stir to mix thoroughly.

Step 1

If you are adding coloring or foam beads, stir these ingredients into the glue mixture. Fold in the shaving cream.

Step 2

Add contact lens solution to the mixture and stir well.

Step 3

The slime will be sticky. Begin to play with the slime, kneading it as you would bread dough, to bring the slime together. The slime is ready when no longer sticky.
