How To Make Slime: My Glitter Slime Recipe
One of my most popular blog posts is my recipe on how to make slime. Not only do my readers love learning how to make slime but my kids love it as well. The great thing about homemade slime is you can make any color you want, the options are really endless. While I was at Walmart the other day I noticed some really pretty Elmer’s Glitter glue. This glue came in a variety of colors including pink, blue, purple and even green. I knew my daughter would go nuts over the pink glitter glue so I grabbed a few so we could make glitter slime.

Recipe for Glitter Slime
For this homemade slime recipe you will need a few things.
Slime Without Borax
Liquid StarchMOM TIP: This slime or any other slime can easily be made without Borax. All you need is LIQUID STARCH and glue. It’s easy-peasy. Just mix about 1 tsp of liquid starch into 4 ounces of glue. Mix the liquid starch into the glue until you get the consistency of slime that you want. Then dye the slime any color you like.
I’ll be honest though. Liquid Starch can be really hard to find in stores. You can pick up an inexpensive container of liquid starch here (the same kind I use). I also like to purchase my glue in bulk so that we can make slime anytime we want. Plus it’s a lot cheaper to buy these in larger quantities.
How To Make Slime
Making slime can get a little messy so make sure you put something down on your table so it can be easily cleaned up when you’re done. The first thing you want to do when making your slime is add 1 cup of warm to the measuring cup. Add in the 1 tsp of Borax and stir well.
In the large bowl add the entire bottle of glue together with one cup of water. If there is some left in the bottle that you can’t get out just add a small amount of warm water to the bottle, shake it and then squeeze the rest out. Don’t worry to much if there is still some glue left over. Mix the water and glue together.
Now slowly add the Borax mixture to the glue mixture and stir. You will add about 1/4 cup at at time. You won’t need the entire cup of Borax.
Now it’s going to get a little messy. With your hands stir the glue and borax mixture around. Squish it together until the glue starts to form a slimy ball. You may have excess water, you can just drain that out of the bowl and continue squeezing the slime.
How To Store Glitter Slime
You can store the slime in a plastic bag or plastic container with a lid. It will last for a few days or even weeks but I recommend throwing it out once it starts getting funky. I hope you and your family enjoy this recipe on how to make slime with glitter.
