This pink and purple glitter-filled slime is perfect for any princess. With added pearls and gemstones, your little princess will be captivated for hours while she uncovers hidden gems, makes letters out of pearls, and unsticks her Lego friends from the slime trap.
Read on to see how we put this fun slime invitation to play together (and how we snuck in a little bit of educational fun too!)
What You’ll Need
- Liquid starch
- School glue (you can use clear or regular)
- Popsicle stick
- Bowl to mix in
- Food coloring
- Pearl beads
- Storage container
What to Do
Begin by gathering your materials.
Next, pour one bottle of glue into your mixing bowl. You can use either white or clear glue (we used clear). Fill your bottle of glue halfway with water and pour it into your bowl. Add one drop of food coloring and mix thoroughly. Next, sprinkle in some glitter.
Next, add 1/2 cup of liquid starch and mix thoroughly with your popsicle stick until it forms a glob. The picture below shows what the slime should look like about halfway to becoming a glob.
Now for the fun part! 🙂 Knead the slime together in your hands for a minute or two until it is no longer sticky. We added a picture below of the final product along with the bottle of glitter we used just for good measure. 🙂
Tip: We discovered that if the slime was still sticky or not globbing together after adding all the ingredients and kneading it a while, rinsing it in a bowl of water helped. Also, a minute or two of kneading the slime after rinsing it does wonders for it as well!
Now it’s play time! Set the slime out for your child along with some pearl beads, gemstones, and whatever other sparkly princess objects you can find.
First, we invited our children to make letters in the slime with the pearls.
Then, they buried pearls and gems and then excavated them.
Their Lego friends even took a quick dive in the princess slime.
After the kids were done playing, we put the slime in airtight containers for next time.
That’s it! While it may seem intimidating at first, it really wasn’t as messy or as difficult as we first thought and after a few trial-and-error batches, we had it down to a science! We made a batch of purple and a batch of pink and it was just perfect for an afternoon of fun.
