Kids will love making this glow-in-the-dark slime. From the moment we made superhero slime, our family found ourselves wanting to experiment with other fun ways to make slime. This kid’s craft is incredibly simple to make and requires few ingredients.
How to make glow in the dark slime
Grab neon-colored or blue glow-in-the-dark glue to make a one-of-a-kind slime!
What ingredients are in this dark slime recipe?
This slime recipe requires no borax! It’s also the softest slime recipe we have tried so far.
- 5 fl oz Glow in the Dark Glue – Blue (a bottle of Emler glue that is glow in the dark)
- Baking Soda
- Contact Lens Solution
Glow Slime ingredients
Pour out an entire bottle of glue into a container or mixing bowl.
Add stars, glitter and mix together.
Pour ½ tbsp of baking soda. Mix.
Add 1 1/4 tbsp of contact lens solution.
Mix until mixture begins to get harder to mix and slime begins to form.
Knead the slime with both hands.
If it’s too sticky, continue adding ¼ tbsp contact lens solution and knead.
Let sit for a few minutes and feel the slime mold into shape.
The slime is pretty as it is with the different stars shining through and the glittery blue color. But, the fun isn’t over yet.
We placed our slime creation directly into the light for a few minutes. Then, we went to a dark room to test it out.
Sure enough, our galaxy slime glowed in the dark! My daughter couldn’t get enough out of it. We later made another glow in the dark slime using the red glue.
