Sparkle Slime

Even easier than play dough, this glittery goo is fun to make and even more fun to play with.

Mix up a stretchy rainbow of glittery colors for play time, parties, gifts, and stocking stuffers.

Prep time:

5 minutes




Step 1. Prepare the Glue

Empty the bottle of glue into a bowl. 

Fill the glue bottle almost full with warm water and shake. Empty the contents into the bowl.

Add food coloring of choice and the glitter. 

Mix well and set aside.


Step 2. Prepare the Borax

In the measuring cup, mix 1/4 cup of warm water with 1/2 teaspoon of borax until the borax dissolves. 


Step 3. Mix the Slime

Pour the borax mixture into the bowl of colorful glue. 

Start stirring until it becoming stringy. 

Keep mixing with your hands until it becomes gelatinous and pulls together.

Some liquid will remain after the slime forms. Discard.



Store in a ziplock bag or air tight container.
