Floam (Slime with Foam Beads)

Change up your slime by adding foam beads to it! Makes it so much more satisfying and distracts your kids for longer as my kids started removing the beads, cleaning the slime off with their fingers, and then readding the cleaned off bead back into the slime.

  • 3/4 cup elmer's white glue clear would be neat too
  • 1/2 tbsp baking soda

  • 1 pouch foam balls (maybe 1/2 to 3/4 of a cup)


  1. Add the glue, baking soda, and water together in a bowl and mix together. 

  2. Add in your contact lens solution and mix it together to make your slime. 

  3. Add your foam beads whenever you're ready and mix it in!

  4. If too sticky you can squirt some more contact lens solution but don't add too much otherwise it will get too hard.
