Are your kids still obsessed with slime!?

Mine sure are! If you have slime fans at home, try making this fun and addictive DIY Butter Slime! The texture is soft and spreadable just like butter or frosting and is super satisfying to play with! Plus it’s really easy to make and takes just a few minutes.

Mix your favorite slime recipe with clay!

My 10-year-old daughter and her friends are really into butter slime made with this super soft air-dry dough called Daiso clay. It’s super fine with an almost kinetic sand feel. We buy it on Amazon, and although it appears to come from Japan, it ships through Prime quickly. There are lots of colors available, and the pigments are nice and bold. 

Our favorite base recipe for slime is the recipe we’ve featured HERE using glue and contact solution, but you can mix clay with your favorite slime recipe as well.

Daiso vs Crayola Clay

You can definitely try experimenting with other brands of craft air dry clay. We tried mixing our slime with Crayola Model Magic  to compare.  The result, however, wasn’t as buttery and soft. It was still fun if you want a more mold-able firm slime kinda like a putty, but it won’t spread like butter.

2.) Add contact solution as the slime “activator” and stir. You’ll notice the consistency start to get firm right away. Keep stirring until you’re able to build slime into a ball. Add additional contact solution if too sticky.

Butter slime is so fun and easy!

My kids beg me to make slime constantly and this idea was a big hit. We took a slime-making break for awhile, but it’s actually a pretty fun summer activity so our slime making is back on!

Think slime is just for kids?

Nope! My best friend’s daughter Hanna, age 11, recently taught a slime-making class at her great grandma’s assisted living home. The residents LOVED it. How cute is that?! 😍

  • HIP List
  • Print

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply move the post to your Hip List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the Hip List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, first head on over here and register and log into your account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back to later at a later time, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account. To remove a post from your HIP List, just click on the HIP List icon and it will be removed.

When logged into your account, you will see the HIP List icon at the bottom of every post if you are viewing in classic view.

If you prefer to view in river view, you will see the HIP List icon located on every post above the post title and to the right.

If you're wanting to print a certain deal, blog post, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. This will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include when printing from your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you! If there are deals (or portions of deals) that you are not interested in printing, just click on the red x button to remove them. To restore a section, click on the green arrow icon in the upper right hand corner.
