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!).

So now on to make this amazing glittery unicorn slime!

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 teaspoon of Baking Soda
  • 1½ TBSP of Contact lens solution. **Important: your brand of contact lens solution must have boric acid and sodium borate in the ingredient list. This is what interacts with the glue to form the slime.
  • Optional: add 2 Tablespoons 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 little bit of lotion or baby oil to your hands.

Now you’re done and you can play! Mix the colors together or play with them separately.

  1. can elmers clear glue and no Glitter be used as well?

  2. Have you tried making this slime with half a bottle of the Elmer’s glitter glue (for each color)? If so, did it turn out ok? Did you cut the other ingredients in half too? 
    Looking forward to making this for my daughter’s Bday party but want to spread out the supplies as much as possible!

  3. Can you use normal glue and normal glitter

  4. Can you put just regular glitter in this instead of using glitter glue

  5. Mine keeps turning out wet and not stretchy ..help please

  6. HELP!! Loved the recipe! What should I do if it’s too stiff and doesn’t really stretch much before ripping? Please help save my slime! Thank you!

  7. How long does it last for in a plastic container?

  8. Can you add food coloring if we can not find colored glue that is affordable?

  9. Great idea, going to try this with the kids I babysit for tomorrow. Thank you for sharing this recipe!

  10. Pretty slime. But once twisted and played with, won’t it all just blend and become one color?

  11. Mine doesn’t go hard it’s still really runny?? What can I add to make it harden?

    • 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.

  12. This was perfect! So easy and really fun!
    How do you recommend that I store it? Ziplock bag? Baby food jar? Thanks 🙂

  13. 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!

  14. tried 3 recipes and threw it out. This recipe worked perfect!ly!! thank you!

  15. Just made this slime with my kids came out perfect!
