    Mix together glue and shaving foam.
    Add hand soap.
    Add in foam beads.
    Start with a couple TBSP of the mixture, stir into your glue/shaving foam until it leaves the sides of the bowl and begins to congeal.
    Add in your coloring by wither using a couple drops of food coloring or dabbing with markers like we did.
    Mix well until a uniform slime texture.
