Learn how to make Emoji Slime with this super easy DIY recipe. Your kids will love to do a craft with you!
Over the last few months we have jumped on the slime train in a major way. We’ve made fluffy slime and floam but we recently made added emoji slime to the mix. You need the same basic ingredients for all different types of slime recipes and this one is no different.
My youngest son loves to be a scientist in the kitchen. We get to spend quality time together and he gets to experiment. And make
messes. I mean memories. Drew is one active kid. He loves being in the kitchen to cook and bake with me. He likes crafting. And he is our sports guy who has about a million (only slight exaggeration) places to be – baseball practice, pitching, football practice and more. Julia is in high school and has lots of places to be too. Between Josh and I, we spend a lot of time in the car.
To be the chauffeur, I got a Chevrolet Tahoe about a year and a half ago. It’s my favorite car ever! It’s roomy, comfortable and the turning radius is awesome. I talk to everyone about it who will listen to me. We loved it so much that Josh got one as well. Yep, we have almost matching cars. I love that GM now has a card that you can earn points towards a new new Chevrolet, Buick, GMC or Cadillac vehicle. Here are some of my favorite features:
- The BuyPower Card from Capital One lets you turn anything you buy into Earnings* toward a new Chevrolet, Buick, GMC or Cadillac vehicle!
- No limit on the amount that you can earn or redeem
- The Earnings don’t expire
- 5% Earnings on first $5,000 in purchases every year. Then unlimited 2% earnings on purchases after that.
The really cool thing is that you can use the BuyPower Card to go to the craft store to get supplies for slime. Or you can use it to go out to dinner as a family. Or it can even be used on a date night to the movies. It can be used for all different kinds of purchases and goes all toward the purchase or lease of a new GM vehicle. Boom!
To make your own emoji slime, get that BuyPower Card and head to the craft store. Or you can use the card online by purchasing through Amazon too. You’ll need:
- foam shaving cream
- Elmer’s glue — you can get a huge one!
- food coloring (this is one we used but I ordered this one too)
- baking soda
- saline solution
- baby oil
- googly eyes
- heart beads
- emoji zip lock bags – I found some at Hobby Lobby
- Washable glue
- Foam shaving cream
- Saline Solution
- Baking Soda
- Baby Oil
- googly eyes
- heart beads
- Add ½ c. glue into a bowl.
- Add yellow color - just a few drops for a light color, or more for darker color.
- Stir to mix in the color.
- Add approximately 3-4 c. shaving cream into bowl.
- Stir in ¼ tsp baking soda.
- Add 1 TBSP saline solution and mix.
- Mix thoroughly and knead the mixture. This is when it turns into slime!
- Use a small amount of baby oil at the end to have the slime be less sticky!
- Add googly eyes and heart beads into the slime and knead until they are well mixed in.
Drew loves the way that slime feels so he plays with it for awhile. He loves pulling it apart and squishy it back together. I think it has a calming effect too which I don’t mind at all!
I found the cute emoji zip close bags at our local Hobby Lobby and thought it’d be fun to put the emoji slime into them. But of course I couldn’t stop there so I made some emoji labels to add to the bags. They’d be cute for a party favor or for back to school. Or just for fun!
Download a sheet of emoji printables. You can print them on a full page sticker sheet and cut them out to attach to the bags.
