I created my Easy Glitter Slime with Elmer’s Glitter Glue. This two ingredient glitter slime is so easy to make. Thanks to Elmer’s for sponsoring this post.
Let’s face it. If you have children between the ages of 5 and 10, glitter and slime make them happy. Combine the powers of glitter, slime and a hands on activity and you’ve got a winner. So heading into summer, Kayla and I whipped up some easy glitter slime using only two ingredients. As you can tell, it was a blast!
Initially I tried using regular borax, water and glitter glue and while it may work for some, I found that it often resulted in a hard blob of glue sitting in a lot of water, regardless of how carefully I mixed things. Frustrating! The good news is that my failed attempts mean you should have much easier success. So save yourself the trouble and make this easy glitter slime process EASY by getting yourself some liquid starch. Just trust me on this one.
You’ll need a bottle of glitter glue and appx 1/2 cup of liquid starch to make your easy glitter slime. Measure out the liquid starch in a bowl or measuring cup. Let your child squeeze the glitter glue into another.
You’ll want to add the liquid starch to the glitter glue slowly. I gave Kayla a tablespoon sized measuring spoon to add the starch. She started mixing it with the spoon but then I asked her if she wanted to mix it with her hands instead. This way she could get the full effect of feeling the slime.
As you can tell she was in all her glory and sensory heaven feeling that squishy, ooey, gooey, slime come together. Once we felt we had the right consistency in our easy glitter slime it was playtime! Kayla loved stretching, squashing, mixing and just getting a little more messy than usual with her glitter slime. I highly recommend throwing down some newspaper or a plastic trash bag if you’re playing in a carpeted area.
This easy glitter slime is the perfect activity to cure summer boredom, keep those little brains thinking and growing and to create some giggles together with your child. Add some little toys like these and you’ll have a whole new learning experience. As busy parents it’s so easy to get caught up in work, routines and just getting through the day taking everyone from point A to point B and back again.
Making this slime was a nice break from the usual for Kayla and it was great to see her so excited to engage in some more messy than usual play. My amazing partners at Elmer’s empowered Kayla and I to give back and create something special to share the same experience with other families over the summer. See how you can give back and share this easy glitter slime with another family.
