We’re back with another fun slime recipe! This beautiful creation came from a multitude of colors mixed together, and it reminded us of saltwater taffy, hence the name Taffy Slime!
How to make Taffy Slime
See the taffy candy below? It’s gooey and stretchy with a cool color in the center. So after creating this latest slime craft, we decided to call it taffy slime. It is NOT edible – so please don’t eat it! It just looks like taffy candy.
Here’s what you’ll need:
Many people prefer a no borax slime recipe. Using liquid starch and glue makes this slime recipe that much easier to create! This starch brand comes highly recommended by several blogging friends, so that’s what we use.
Sta-Flo DIA13101 Concentrated Liquid Starch, 64 Oz Bottle – Pack of 1
- 1 cup White Glue
- 1/3 Cup Liquid Starch
- Acrylic Paint (amount varies depending on the desired color)
- Colors used: Red, Blue, Eggplant, and Black
How to make Slime
Because slime is a science project, we highly recommend parental supervision while kids make the slime.
- To make the Taffy slime, pour 1 cup of the white glue in a bowl.
- Then add the satin acrylic paint and mix until you’ve reached your desired color.
- Next, add 1/3 cup of liquid starch and stir until it combines.
- Finally, take the slime out of the bowl and knead (approximately 3-4 minutes) it until it combines.
- If you find that the slime is still sticky, add a small amount of starch and repeat step 4.
We laid strips of each slime color down on a tablecloth next to one another. We then twisted and played with the slime. As we did, the slime began to take on a new berry burgundy color.
We loved all the fun colors and shapes it began to take. Slime is SO fun for kids and will keep them entertained for hours!
Once the majority of the taffy slime formed into a berry burgundy color, we added a few additional strips of black slime to the mix. Doesn’t it look beautiful? We’re having so much fun with our #SummerOfSlime posts! We hope you’re enjoying them too!
We highly recommend staying in eyesight of children while playing with slime. We don’t want it to wind up in their mouths or on a surface other than a craft area.
How to Remove Slime from Clothing
If you’re wondering how to clean the slime off clothes – because it is sticky and can sometimes wind up on them – vinegar takes it right out! Just pour a little vinegar on the spot, scrub with a small brush, rinse and voila the slime is gone!
