13 Fun Slime Ideas13 Fun Slime Ideas

Last week Natures Garden had so much fun creating scented slime!  It was a day of slime making that I personally will never forget!  Today, let’s look at some fun slime ideas for all of the slime makers out.  Below, we are going to share some of our very favorite scented slimes using some of our most popular slime scents!  We will look at some of the key ingredients used in slime.  In addition, we will talk about some of the fun decorative things you can do with slime.  We also look at coloring options for slime making.

13 Fun Slime Ideas: A Basic Slime Recipe

Before we look at our 13 fun slime ideas or ways to jazz up your slime, let’s talk about the ingredients and some slime making basics.  First, you will need glue and shaving cream.  In addition, you will need borax and water.  Finally, the fun stuff!  You will need color, scent, and fragrance oil.

Creating the Borax SolutionA Basic Slime Recipe:  Creating the Borax Solution

First, you will need to create a borax solution.  In a bullet bottle, add 8 ounces of warm water.  Then, add 1/2 teaspoon of borax.  Place a disc lid on top, in the closed position.  Then, shake the bottle to mix the ingredients together.  Set this aside, for now, we will come back to it.

Mixing the Glue and Shaving CreamA Basic Slime Recipe:  Mixing the Glue and Shaving Cream

We found that we like adding shaving cream to ours to give our slime a nice fluffy look.  However, if you are using clear glue, you will not want to do this.  Your slime will not remain clear.  In deep mixing bowl, add one cup of Elmer’s Glue.  Then, add about two cups of shaving cream.  Use your hands to mix everything together.

Adding the Fragrance Oil and ColorA Basic Slime Recipe:  Adding the Fragrance Oil and Color

Now, we will add color and scent.  These two ingredients can be added right to the glue/shaving cream mixture.  Once you have added the scent and color, mix everything together.  When choosing a color you have a couple of options.  You can use either the FUN Soap Colorants or Da Bomb Soap Dyes.  When scenting your slime, you want to make sure you use a body safe fragrance oil and do not go over the maximum usage rate found on the IFRA certificate for that fragrance oil.  The IFRA certificate can be found in the description of each fragrance oil.

Adding the Borax Solution to the Other IngredientsA Basic Slime Recipe:  Adding the Borax Solution to the Other Ingredients

Now, you will need the borax solution you created.  Add a small amount of the borax solution to the bowl containing your glue mixture.  Then, mix everything together.  Continue to add small amounts of the borax solution and mixing until you have a fluffy slime consistency.  However, be careful not to add too much of the solution.  If you add too much, you slime will not stretch.  If you do not add enough, however, it will be too sticky.  Once you create your slime, you can package it in these jars and lids.

A Basic Slime Recipe: Decorating Your Slime

You have several options when it comes to decorations.  You can add glitter, slime charms, beads, and confetti.  The sky is the limit.  Below, we will show you some of the ways we decorated our slime to give it a fun twist.  We took into consideration the scent that we were using when creating the slime and had so much fun making scented slime!

Yummy Gummy Slime13 Fun Slime Ideas: Yummy Gummy Slime

First, we have the Yummy Gummy Slime.  This slime recipe uses Natures Garden’s Yummy Gummy Fragrance Oil.  So, what does the Yummy Gummy scent smell like?  If you guessed gummy bears you would be correct.  Keep reading for a little more about this scent.  This slime uses green glitter to color the clear glue slime.  In addition, we added gummy bear charms that pair perfectly with this fun candy aroma!  How did we make this slime?  We started with a basic slime recipe.  Then, we added the scent and some bright neon green glitter.  Once everything was mixed together, we added the adorable little gummy bears.

 Yummy Gummy Fragrance OilYummy Gummy Slime:  Yummy Gummy Fragrance Oil

Yummy Gummy fragrance oil is a Natures Garden original scent. These gummy candies are a favorite of so many.  This gummy candy is bursting with fruity flavor and goodness.  The top notes of this fragrance oil include orange, peach, and lemon.  Those top notes are followed by middle notes of coconut, raspberry, and grape that lead to base notes of plum, pear, and a sweet vanilla.

13 Fun Slime Ideas: Bacon Slime

Next, we have the bacon slime created at Natures Garden.  This slime was created using white glue and shaving cream.  It was then scented with bacon fragrance oil.  Once we created the slime, we divided our slime into three equal portions.  Each portion was placed into its own bowl.  Then, we colored our slime.  One of the three bowls was left uncolored.  One was colored with our red oxide FUN Soap Colorant.  To the third bowl, we added just a tiny bit of red oxide and a drop or two of the tomato red FUN Soap Colorant.  We mixed the colorant into each bowl, washing our hands in between mixing so we didn’t mix the colors.  Once we had the slime colored, we stretched the slime out and layered it.  Then, we placed it in the jar.

 Bacon Fragrance OilBacon Slime:  Bacon Fragrance Oil

So what does the bacon fragrance oil smell like?  Bacon, of course.    It smells just like the real thing.  Who doesn’t love bacon!

 

 

Blue Raspberry Slushie Slime13 Fun Slime Ideas: Blue Raspberry Slushie Slime

Now, we have a blue raspberry slushie slime recipe to talk about.  This is another slime that uses white glue and shaving cream.  Once we created the actual slime and added the blue raspberry scent, we added some sparkle.  How did we make this slime sparkle like an ice cold slushie?  We added a few teaspoons of the Diamond Dust mica pigment from Natures Garden.  We also added about 5 drops or so of the blue Da Bomb Soap Dye.  Once we had everything mixed together, we added some ice blue slime beads to give the slime some texture.

 Blue Raspberry Slushie Fragrance OilBlue Raspberry Slushie Slime:  Blue Raspberry Slushie Fragrance Oil

So, what does the Blue Raspberry Slushie Fragrance Oil smell like?  It smells like those super awesome blue raspberry sno cones that we all love so much.  This slushie scent is the aroma of fresh raspberries, sweet cotton candy, and the effervescence pop of crisp crushed ice.

 

Bunny Slime13 Fun Slime Ideas: Bunny Slime

This one is just in time for Easter.  Our Bunny Slime is scented with Easter Bunny Burps Fragrance Oil.  We also used both white glue and shaving cream for a nice fluffy slime.  We also added Natures Garden’s ultramarine violet FUN Soap Colorant to get a pretty pastel purple color that is perfect for Springtime!  Once we created our scented slime, we added pink, purple, and blue slime confetti hearts and topped added a bunny slime charm to the top of the jar.

 

 Easter Bunny Burps Fragrance OilBunny Slime:  Easter Bunny Burps Fragrance Oil

So, what does Easter Bunny Burps fragrance oil smell like?  Some might think an Easter Basket.  But, no, we wanted this scent to reflect any bunny’s lifestyle. This Natures Garden original scent is a vibrant blend of shimmering garden greens that lead to just a hint of fresh mint.  Then, a blend of spring flowers will hit you with green tones.  The scent is warmed with glowing notes of sandalwood and hints of musk to finish the scent.

Hot Fudge Brownie Slime13 Fun Slime Ideas: Hot Fudge Brownie Slime

So, next we have a hot fudge brownie slime.  This one not only looks AMAZING, but the scent is out of this world!  How did we make this slime?  This is another fluffy slime recipe using both white glue and shaving cream.  We scented it with Hot Fudge Brownies Fragrance Oil from Natures Garden.  Then, we colored about 2/3 of the slime with brown oxide and a small amount of black oxide FUN Soap Colorants to give it a chocolate color.  Finally, when placing it in our jar, we added the brown first, keep just a little bit of the brown to top the slime.  Once we added the white slime to the top we used that leftover brown to drizzle the top.  Of course, it wouldn’t be complete without a cherry charm on top.  We also added a chocolate bar charm.

Hot Fudge Brownies fragrance oil by Natures Garden is the aroma of scrumptious chocolate brownies smothered in hot fudge with a slight hint of warm vanilla.  Our customers love the Hot Fudge Brownies fragrance oil so much that they have made it one of our bestsellers!

Mermaid Slime13 Fun Slime Ideas: Mermaid Slime

So, next we have our Mermaid Slime.  Of course, we had to scent it with the Mermaid Kisses Fragrance Oil.  Once we created a fluffy scented slime, we divided our slime into three.  We used neon pink, neon blue, and ultramarine violet FUN Soap Colorants to color them.  We didn’t need much of each colorant, just enough to give the slime pretty pastel colors.  Once the slime was colored, we stretched it, layered it, and pressed it into the jar.  We added some fun purple star slime confetti and purple slime beads.  Finally, we added a purple shell charm and mermaid fin.

Bath Bombs For KidsBath Bombs For Kids

As a parent, I know how difficult it can be to get some kids to take a bath. It can literally become a chore for them and for you. Even if they have the tub filled to the top with toys and bubbles, it can still be just a boring chore for them. And while there isn’t anything wrong with bubbles in the bathtub they can also be boring. How about livening up bath time with a fun bath bomb just for kids? Nature’s Garden has created some Bath Bombs for Kids that will surely make bath time a lot less boring and a lot more fun!

The ingredients used in most of the bath bombs are baking soda: a natural deodorizer that helps keep your skin soft and smooth. Citric acid: this ingredient puts the fizz in any bath bomb recipe and also helps the bath bomb produce foam. Each bath bomb has a different oil used that will help keep little one’s skin soft and hydrated after the fun is over.

Bath bombs don’t have to be all girly! This Camouflage Bath Bomb will be a big hit with little boys right off the bat! The cool camo colors of green, tan, brown and black will catch any little boy’s eye right off.  We’ve chosen Deadly Weapon fragrance oil to turn this kid bomb into a big kid bomb! It has a rugged, masculine scent of spice and leather. Tucked inside the bath bomb, though, is a neat little army guy that will appear when the bath bomb has completely dissolved! How neat would these be to create these as a party favor or to just make for any little man in your life?

We’ve used baking soda, citric acid and apricot kernel oil to keep your little one’s skin soft and smooth. Butterfly Flower fragrance oil is what we chose for this bomb. A light, green floral bouquet with a touch of tang! It’s the perfect scent for any little kid wanting to get clean.

And to keep them in the bath without getting bored a surprise awaits them when the bath bomb has fizzled itself out! A tiny little cow that can hang out in the bathtub with them while they bathe!

So if you have a little boy or even a little girl that loves dinosaurs, this Dinosaur Egg Bath Bomb would be a perfect bath time treat for them. On the outside, it looks like a dinosaur egg, and each layer reveals a new color as it melts away in the bath water until out pops a baby dinosaur that was waiting to hatch! The fun part is not knowing what kind of dinosaur is hiding inside. Kids can have fun guessing which type of dinosaur will appear before the bath ends!

Hawaiian Black Salt also makes a wonderful exfoliator that is both gentle and beneficial to the skin! Even kids’ tender skin! The fragrance oil we chose was Mr. Pepper MD which smells incredibly similar to the always popular soda pop, Dr. Pepper.

Third, we have our vanilla cinnamon sugar scrub that uses avocado oil.  What else is unique about this sugar scrub?  To be honest there are a few things.  One, since this scrub is emulsified, we could layer it.  What is an emulsified scrub some may ask.  To put it simply, do you ever notice how some scrubs will have the oil separated from the sugar or salt?  Those scrub were not emulsified. This doesn’t mean there is anything wrong with them, we have made plenty like this as well.  However, one great thing with an emulsified scrub is that you can layer it.  The second unique thing about this scrub, in addition to vanilla powder and apple pie spice powder, it contains two different types of sugar.  The brown layer contains brown sugar and the white contains white sugar.  Lastly, this sugar scrub recipe uses two different fragrance oils.  We scented it with Cinnabun Type Fragrance Oil and Vanilla Bean Fragrance Oil.
