How To Make Slime For Kiwi Kids & Adults Alike (NZ Guide)

Until recently, I’d never thought making slime was a hot topic right now in New Zealand. Fortunately Google NZ claims the term, how to make slime nz was one of the most searched phrases of the last year.

Today we’re going to show you how to make slime for kiwi kids at home using a few basic ingredients that you can purchase from your local supermarket.

As a parent myself I know just how much fun kids can have with slime and how within a few minutes you can make your very own slime. While it’s definitely an easy and messy way to play, it’s also an easy process to clean up after wards.

Your kids (or yourself if you’re an adult) will have lots of fun stretching, moulding, rolling into balls, throwing it into the air and letting it splat on the table! That’s what all the fun is about, oh and it’s a good stress reliever too.

Ingredients Required

  • 2 ¼ cups cornflour (plus a little extra)
  • ½ cup shampoo
  • 6 tablespoons water (approx)
  • Food coloring (your choice, I like red or green)
  • Bowl or plastic container for mixing in
  • Spoon for mixing.

How To Make Slime

  • 1. Mix the shampoo with three drops of food coloring together in a bowl
  • 2. Mix in the cornflour
  • 3. Add the water 1 tablespoon at a time
  • 4. Once it’s all mixed together, leave for 10 minutes and then you’ll be ready to play.

If you run into issues, the slim should easily roll into a ball, if it’s too wet then add more cornflour to strengthen, again it’s its too dry (it should be shiny and melt in your hands) add more water, keep trying until you get the right texture.

While playing inside is definitely possible, the mess will likely mean playing outside is your best bet. Or using an old sandpit.

When you’ve finished playing you can simply scrape into a lock tight container and keep it for the next few days. You may need to add some water each time you play.

I'm an adventurer, traveller and thrill seeker who loves to explore the beautiful country of New Zealand. When I'm not writing articles for Ki-Wi you'll find me driving jet boats, hiking and riding my motorcycle. New Zealand is an amazing country to live, work, travel and explore.
