Messy Play Ideas: How to make Soap Slime

Making soap slime is a lot of fun and a great sensory activity for kids. This soap slime is made with soap flakes, so at least it’s a clean messy play activity!

What you’ll need to make Soap Slime

  • A big container to mix it in
  • 2 cups pure soap flakes (eg Lux Flakes)
  • 2 L warm water
  • Food colouring in different colours (optional)
  • A hand beater, or better still an electric beater
  • Kitchen utensils

How to make Soap Slime

Mix the soap flakes and warm water together in a big container and then let stand until cool enough to touch. You could even make this mixture up in a baby bath.

Add food colouring to the mixture. Or, if you want to make rainbow slime, then separate the mixture into separate bowls and add a drop or two of food colouring to each bowl before combining the slime.

Tips for perfect soap slime

❤️ The longer you let the mixture stand the thicker it becomes. Add more water for a thinner consistency.

❤️ You can make the mixture by hand, or use an electric whisk if you’re short on time – this also makes thicker, fluffier slime.

❤️ Make rainbow soap slime by splitting the mixture into batches and adding a different colour to each batch.

❤️ Make sparkly slime by adding glitter or foil stars to the mixture.

❤️ Use on a flat surface such as a table, or put in a shallow tray.

❤️ Kids can have fun using kitchen utensils to mix the slime.
