Ingredients Needed to Make Galaxy Slime Recipe
- 3 – 6 oz bottles of glitter glue
- 3/4 cup water, divided
- 3/4 cup liquid starch, divided (also called laundry starch)
- silver confetti stars
- liquid water colors — we used a variety of colors: purple, magenta, and teal
- Something to stir with like a plastic spoon or craft stick
Directions for Homemade Galaxy Slime Recipe
Add the glitter glue into a bowl and stir in 1/4 cup of water and mix the glue mixture well.
Alternative: Use clear glue and add your own silver glitter.
Add a few drops of liquid watercolor to create the desired color then add in the star confetti.
Alternative: Food coloring is always an option when making slime. We liked the watercolor paint for this one because of the vibrance.
Pour in 1/4 cup liquid starch and stir to combine. The slime will start to separate from the sides of the bowl — remove it from the bowl and knead with your hands until it is no longer sticky and stretches easily.
Repeat the slime making process with the remaining colors and ingredients to create three different colors of slime: blue, pink, and purple.

How to Store Your Own Galaxy Slime
Use an airtight container to store your DIY galaxy slime. I love using leftover clear plastic food containers or a small zipping plastic bag. Generally homemade slime will last for several months if left in a sealed container at room temperature.
