Create easy fluffy slime that is both a fun hands-on sensory activity, as well as gooey tasty play.
Hey there Juggling Act Mama readers! My name is Trish and I am excited to be sharing a guest post here on Ang’s website for the first time today. Like Ang, I also run a creative content website where I focus on all things family, food & travel. I would like to formally invite you to stop by my website, TrishSutton.com.
It is my hope that you will find a simple yet engaging and joy-filled DIY craft or project, easy recipe, free printable or place to visit. (Even if that visit is just vicariously through my lens and words.)
Today I am here to share an edible sensory project with you. My Easy Fluffy Slime recipe is made with marshmallows and powdered sugar.
In honor of the patriotic summer holidays me and my little guy created this batch of edible slime in red, white and blue with an edible silver addition. Don’t worry, the silver glitter is edible too!
Along with another colorful edible slime recipe I have a few other squishy play activities on my website in the form of play-dough, two ingredient fun foam, and an incredibly simple two ingredient edible silly putty recipe. Now, let’s get back to what we are all here for today! Edible Marshmallow Slime.

How to Make Easy Fluffy Slime:
- Start by preparing a workspace by laying a sheet of parchment paper onto a flat surface. (A baking sheet, cutting board, craft board or even the kitchen counter would all work perfectly for this project.)
- Pour 1 cup of powdered sugar onto the parchment paper then use your hand to spread it out over the paper.
- After that, add 4 extra large marshmallows to a medium to large size microwave safe bowl then heat them in the microwave for 30 seconds. (The jumbo marshmallows will expand pretty quickly and will puff up rather big.)
- Carefully remove the bowl from the microwave after 30 seconds, then spray your spatula with cooking spray and whip the melted marshmallows.
- When the marshmallow consistency is smooth add food color and stir the mixture. If a deeper color is desired simply add a few more drops of food color and stir.
- Then pour the melted marshmallow onto the powder sugar. Use your hands or a spoon to scoop up the sugar and dump it onto the liquid marshmallow.
- Finally, when the melted marshmallow is cool to the touch spray a layer of cooking spray on your hands then squish the marshmallow and powdered sugar together to create easy fluffy slime.
Repeat the steps above for additional colors of slime and, if desired, add in edible silver glitter.
PRO MOM TIP:
If your edible marshmallow slime is too sticky, add more powdered sugar. On the flip side, you can add 1/2 a teaspoon of cooking oil if your fluffy slime feels a bit too dry.
Easy Fluffy Slime
Let the real fun begin! Pass off the slime to those little hands that have patiently been waiting to stretch, shape, roll, play with and even take a bite out of the marshmallowy fluffy slime.
Add in roller pins, cookie cutters, plastic cutlery, craft sticks and straws for even more fun creative possibilities.
How to Save Edible Marshmallow Slime:
Unfortunately, this fluffy slime is not meant for repeat play past 12-24 hours. If you plan on enjoying your edible creation on day two you can preserve the slime overnight in a plastic bag or airtight container.
You will likely need to warm the slime in the microwave for 10-15 seconds before play. Just be sure it’s cool to the touch before you pass it off to little hands. If needed you can add oil or powdered sugar to achieve your day two desired fluffy consistency.
