Unicorn Slime

Have you ever made homemade slime before? It’s actually quite fun to do! If your kids love unicorns and they love slime, then they will absolutely love this unicorn slime. This unicorn slime can be adapted to your favorite colors too! We picked our favorite colors of a unicorn being – pink, blue and gold. But you could make it rainbow colored or add purple or green too! When you’re done making it, just twist the colors together and you can turn it into unicorn poop! (Silly we know but the kids will get a kick out of it!).

Ingredients Needed to Make Unicorn Slime

Repeat each of the below for each color (you’ll need to make 3 batches of the glitter slime to form your unicorn slime)

Per batch: 

  • 1 bottle of Elmer’s glitter glue (6 oz) – we used pink, yellow, and blue and repeated the recipe 3 times. Note: we made this with Elmer’s glitter glue. Do not substitute with other glue as the make-up may not be the same and the recipe may not work
  • Pink, Gold, and Blue Glitter – use lots of glitter to get the same shiny effect. We like this brand of glitter.
  • 1/2 TBSP of Baking Soda
  • 1½ TBSP of Contact lens solution. **Important: your brand of contact lens solution must have boric acid in the ingredient list. This is what interacts with the glue to form the slime.
  • Optional: add 1 TBSP of water to your glue if you’d like a stretchier slime

6.  Now mix until your slime forms and begins to harden. Take it out and knead, knead, knead. You may be surprised how much you need to knead to really make the slime form. If it’s not the desirable consistency keep kneading. If you find it to still be too sticky, add a bit more contact lens solution.

    1. Janice the contact lens solution is what turns the glue into slime. Make sure yours has sodium borate and boric acid in it. If it’s still too runny, add a little more in a teaspoon at a time. Too much and it may become too stiff.

  1. Awesome! It’s cold in Minnesota so we do a lot of indoor activities and art. My daughter and niece loved their slime! What a cool cheap activity!
