Playdough surprise eggs. Hobby Kids Tv. SaltBae. and now Butter Slime.
What do these things have in common? My son, and most kids his age are obsessed with them all! Every night he grabs my phone, goes on insta and watches "slime videos" (bizarre to say the least) before bed. I tried to figure out these obsessions way back when he would watch random people on YouTube opening toys. What's the allure???? I'll buy you your own toys, why are you watching GROWN ADULTS open them for you??!! Technology.....
But if it gave me a few moments of sanity, and a quiet house for an hour, who was I to judge his tastes, watch away......
I'm an indulgent parent, I take responsibility for the Mama's boy i'm creating. I wanted to surprise him with a jar of his favorite "slime Girl's" Slime.
Apparently there is a very high demand in the underground slime trade, every site was "sold out" of the illusive Butter Slime.
A quick google search gave us a basic recipe for Butter Slime. After 3 attempts, and a few alterations to the original, we got the perfect Buttery texture. A $20 trip to CVS & you can have all the slime your heart desires......
Saline Solution for Contacts
Elmers White Glue (no substitutions)
Barbasol Shaving Cream (any white non gel shaving cream is fine)
Model Magic Clay (preferably white)

Step 3: Slowly add the Contact Lens solution. Start with around 1/2 teaspoon. You will see a chemical change in the mixture right away. Keep stirring, until slime begins to form. Add more solution until slime no longer sticks to the mixing bowl, or hands. It will become a slightly sticky ball.
Step 4: To create the butter slime texture knead the bag of model magic clay into the slime ball. If it is still too loose or sticky add a sprinkling of cornstarch.
I bought cute little glass jars to store the slime, and put the extra in a ziplock bag. The jarred slime became puffier and less dense, while the slime in the plastic retained it's slick texture. The greatest part: it does not stick to clothing or furniture. If does get on clothing, let it airdry, then flick it off! No mess.
