How To Make Holographic Glitter Slime

glitter slime ingredients

  1. Measure out 1 cup of glue and pour into a large bowl. glitter slime ingredients
  2. Measure out 3/4 cup of Elmer’s magical liquid and add to the bowl. glitter slime ingredients
  3. Use a fork to mix the two ingredients together until mixed.
  4. Once mixed add a little magical liquid to your fingertips (this helps it not stick to your hands as much) and begin hand mixing and kneading the slime until it becomes the correct consistency.
  5. If your slime is still sticky after kneading for a few minutes, add more magical liquid (1-2 tablespoons at a time) and continue mixing. glitter slime ingredients
  6. Once you’re happy with the consistency of your slime, add in the glitter. You can use as much or as little glitter as you want! We used about 1 teaspoon super fine holographic glitter and 1/4 teaspoon mini star glitter. Mix thoroughly until completely combined.

That’s it! 

This glitter slime really is foolproof when you use the magical liquid. If you feel the slime is too sticky, just keep adding a little magical liquid, mix and see if the slime is the consistency you want.

Alternatively, you could replace the magical liquid with 1 tablespoon baking soda and 2 tablespoons contact lens solution. Just remember the contact lens solution must contain boric acid to work. Use the same principles of adding a liquid extra contact lens solution to the slime to make it less sticky. 

I would say that compared to the fluffy slime, this glitter slime is just stickier in general, so be sure to let the kids know they’ll be in for some messy play!

SLIME SAFETY

Please always have adult supervision when children are playing with slime.

You also want to be sure that your child knows that this type of slime is not edible. If any part of the slime is ingested, immediately call for medical advice. 

Parents or another adult should always make the slime. This type of slime should not be used with children 3 and younger.

If your child has sensitive skin use gloves while playing with the slime or watch them to be sure the slime isn’t irritating to the skin. 

Be sure to always have your child wash their hands after playing with slime.
