Galaxy slime is one of the coolest slimes we’ve made to date!
Recently we’ve created holographic glitter slime, neon slime, and simple fluffy slime, but this one has become our new favorite.
Today we’re sharing how to make your own custom galaxy slime, exactly the way you want.
And if you’re worried about it being too difficult or time-consuming, just throw that thought out the window! This slime recipe only uses 4 different ingredients and takes 10 minutes or less to make.
Read on below to see how simple it is to make this galaxy slime recipe with Elmer’s clear glue.
Also, if you love slime, you have to check out our easy slime recipes for kids page. It’s got every slime idea you want in one place.
Galaxy Slime Recipe
- 1 cup Elmer’s clear glue
- Fine glitter in multiple galaxy colors (we used 5 different colors all from this kit)
- 1 tablespoon baking soda
- 2 tablespoons contact lens solution (it must contain boric acid)
Galaxy Slime Instructions
Pour the clear glue into a large bowl.
Add in all the glitters, baking soda and contact lens solution.
Use a fork to mix everything together.
Dip your fingers in a little of the contact solution (this will help it not stick to your hands as much) and knead the slime until it fully forms. If it’s still a tad too sticky, add a tiny bit (a teaspoon at a time) more contact lens solution and knead again.
That’s it! It’s such an easy slime to make!
This slime is so sparkly your kids won’t want to put it down!
You can see we didn’t add any measurements for the glitter since you can put in as little or as much as you want. We ended up using 5 different colored glitters in pink, purplish-pink, teal, green, blue, and a hint of silver that are all included in this 30 set glitter kit.
Of course if you want to keep it super simple, you can use Elmer’s glitter glue in pink and blue and just skip the added glitter altogether. We prefer adding our own glitter so we can make it exactly how we want it!
Slime Safety Tips
Please always have adult supervision when children are playing with slime.
Be certain your child knows this type of slime is not edible. If any part of the slime is accidentally 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.
Always have your child wash their hands after playing with slime.
