The step by step instructions, slime recipe and video tutorial show you exactly how to make galaxy slime at home. Very cool for a summer day when you have heard “Mom, I’m bored. What can I do?” more times than you can stand it.

Step 2

To begin, you will need 1/2 cup of liquid starch. After stirring the ingredients, you will check the consistency. If the recipe is too thin and not yet like slime, you should add more, one teaspoon at a time. Stir each time you add and then stop when you have the right texture. Once it’s all mixed up, you can knead the dough and you’ll get a teal colored slime. Add some more color by adding acrylic paint to the mixture.

In case you’ve had trouble locating some of the supplies, or are like me and forget these things unless they’re scribbled on the back of your hand, here’s some links to help you out.

Glitter glue comes in an assortment of colors, which is really the best way to make this DIY galaxy slime. Different colors for each kid means less arguments them and less policing for me.

Liquid starch isn’t your typical ingredient in DIY kids crafts, but without it this craft would be a gooey mess. Unless you’re making this kids craft for a camp or Vacation Bible School, this should be plenty of liquid starch for your galaxy slime.
