How To Make Glitter Slime

How about some glitter slime? Hi there. I’ve been so busy with my new Instant Pot (the 8 Quart Instant Pot that I just purchased) that I have neglected my other posts, slime being one of those posts. I’ve been feeling so guilty about that that I decided to make slime with a little something extra. Yep, you guessed it, GLITTER! All different glorious colors of glitter. The kids and I had so much fun making this special glitter slime and playing with it. It’s truly addicting. If we hadn’t run out of glitter glue I would still be at it I tell you.  While we were occupied making our third batch of slime the funniest thing happened. Our puppy came along out of nowhere and grabbed our big ball of slime thinking it was a bouncy ball I guess. Boy was she disappointed when it went nowhere and just dripped through her teeth. It was like some bizarre party trick. And have no worries no animals were harmed during the making of this post! 🙂 Here are the ingredients:

1 Elmer’s Glitter Glue

1 Cup Water

1 tsp. Borax

1 Tb Water

{ You can replace the Glitter Glue for regular white glue to make normal slime }

And now for the instructions:



Mix 1 tsp. Borax and 1 Cup water together.

You can find the Borax at your local stores in the Laundry section.

I do so love the box! O:)


pouring glitter glue into bowl

Have your little helpers empty the Glitter Glue into a bowl.

Can you hardly wait or what! 🙂


Add 1 TB. Water to the glue and mix it together.

This will help the glue to become a little more pliable.


Then pour the Borax mixture inside of the bowl.

Let their little bitty hands make the mixture come to life by mixing the glue into the mixture.

Right away you will see how the Glitter Slime will start to form.

This is where you’ll hear all the hoopla about their magic concoction as it all comes to life.

Isn’t it pretty?

***Special note***

Don’t leave the slime in the water mixture too long since it will make the slime too hard.

Finish mixing it in your hands.

Now there’s your magic glitter slime made all by you! WOWIE!!!:)
