How to do it

Step 1 Combine glue and starch

In a large mixing bowl, combine a small bottle of clear crafts glue (make sure to get it all!) and ½ cup liquid starch. Stir the starch and glue combination well; the starch will mix with the glue to form a substance that is more firm, but still gooey. Keep stirring until the glue and starch are completely combined, then add the fun ingredients.

Step 2 Add dye and glitter

To make a galaxy slime with two colors, separate the glue and starch mixture into two bowls before mixing in coloring or glitter. Add several drops of liquid food dye to the glue and starch mixture, and stir well. If you’re using a gel food coloring for this step, start with just one drop; gel coloring tends to be more highly pigmented. Stir the mixture until the color is fully incorporated, then add several kinds of glitter to the mix. We love the way the star glitter looks in the finished galaxy slime!

Editor's Tip: Wondering how to make slime with glitter glue? Follow the same process and omit the glitter when adding the gel food coloring.

Step 3 Knead to form slime

Use a spoon to stir in the glitter; the more you stir the mixture, the more solid it will become. When the mixture is solid enough to pick up, begin kneading it with your hands. Knead the mixture for several minutes to turn the slime from a gooey mess into a solid ball of slime that is firm and stretchy. When the slime reaches this point, it’s ready to play with! If you made batches in multiple colors, this is the best time to mix them together. Keep in mind that the colors will slowly start to combine as you handle the mixed-color slime.
