DIY Pink Glitter Slime Recipe
My kids love when I make slime at home and now that I’ve found a recipe that works every time, we’re having more fun than ever! Today we made pink glitter slime to play with for Valentine’s Day but you can use this recipe any time of year.
Slime ingredients can cause an adverse reaction for some people. Please follow the recipe as intended and test ingredients on skin before making slime. The Moments at Home is not responsible for any adverse reactions caused by slime or its ingredients.
Making slime at home is a great sensory activity for kids of all ages. Preschoolers enjoy using their scissor skills to cut slime while older kids just like squishing it around in their hands. Be sure to keep the slime away from clothes and other fabric surfaces because it’s not easy to remove! My kids usually sit at the table and play with the slime cutting and squishing away.
Making Slime at Home
I’ve tried a couple different slime recipes found on Pinterest and felt like I must be doing something wrong. Sometimes they’d turn out awesome, other times we were left with a sticky mess. After a little research I came up with a slime recipe that seems to work well each time we make it at home.
1/2 cup liquid starch
4 oz. white glue
2 tsp. corn starch
Pink Glitter Slime Recipe
- Using the ingredients above, squeeze 8 oz. of white glue into a bowl. Add 1 tablespoon of pink craft paint and 1 tablespoon of red glitter.
- Add 1/2 cup liquid starch. Immediately start squishing the ingredients together with your hands to mix. Add 2 tsp. corn starch and continue mixing for a few minutes.
- Drain the excess liquid and let the slime sit for about five minutes. Then squish and fold the slime over on itself until it reaches the desired consistency.
Too sticky? Add a little more liquid starch.
I usually put the slime in a ziploc bag in the refrigerator until my kids are ready to play with it. This makes the slime cool to the touch and adds to their sensory play.
