This recipe for making glitter galaxy slime is so simple, your kids will want to make it over and over again! All you need to get started making the slime is contact solution, clear glue, and baking soda.
This is so pretty and sparkly. I just love the color!
How to make slime with contact solution
If your child loves to make slime, you probably already have all the items on-hand that you will need to make galaxy slime. But just in case, here’s a list of the items that you will need:
- clear glue
- baking soda
- contact solution
- large paper plate
- plastic fork or spoon
- glitter—silver, gold, purple
- food coloring—blue and red, to make purple
- plastic bag (for storage and later disposal)
Directions to make Galaxy Slime:
- Mix 1 cup of clear glue with a ½ teaspoon of baking soda.
- Sprinkle in the glitter. Anything silver, purple, gold.
- Add contact solution, 1 tablespoon at a time.
- Combine on the plate until the mixture is somewhat stiff, yet gooey.
- Add a couple drops of blue and red food coloring until you get the desired color of purple that you’d like.
- This is where the get-your-hands-dirty part comes in… now you need to pick up the slime and kneed it with your hands— and pull it and stretch it until it is very elastic-y.

Slime recipe with clear glue
This slime recipe is what I like to think of as a base recipe. Using this basic recipe to make the slime, we can alter it for other holidays and occasions. In fact, we have used this same recipe before to make Glitter Slime using red food coloring and some pretty pink, red, and silver glitter and even heart-shaped glitter around Valentine’s Day.
Making slime with cornstarch is even easier than using this basic clear glue and contact solution recipe! However, cornstarch slime is more of a science experiment because it acts as both a solid and a liquid—it’s actually pretty cool! I’ve even included the scientific explanation if your child wants to use this for a science project for school. But, I will warn you that this is very messy.
