Glitter Slime

Science Fun

Kids love science. Kids love slime. Summer is a great time to make glitter slime since you can make this project outside in the nice weather. I recommend making glitter slime outside since glitter can be messy.

In this project the sodium borate in the liquid starch mixes with the polyvinyl-acetate (PVA) glue and forms this awesome stretchy substance.

For a slightly less messy science project be sure to try our silly putty, glitter slime, and goop recipes as well this summer.

You Will Need:

Elmer’s Washable Clear Glue
Liquid Starch
Food Coloring (optional)
Disposable Bowls, Measuring Cup, and Spoon

What to Do:

1. Protect your work surface. We recommend making this slime outdoors.

2. Add 1/2 cup of glue to a disposable bowl.

3. Add 1/2 cup of water and mix.

4. Add glitter. You can also add food coloring. Stir well.

5. Add 1/2 cup of liquid starch to the glue and glitter mixture. Mix well. Then knead the slime.
