DIY Valentine’s Glitter Goo Recipe

blessed beyond a doubt affiliate disclosure2


We all became addicted to homemade slime and glitter goo this past year.  It’s so simple to make and it’s absolutely so COOL to feel and touch.

So EASY DIY Valentine’s Glitter Goo Recipe

It’s simply relaxing.

So of course, we had to make some Valentine glitter goo to celebrate God’s love for us on Valentine’s Day. The kids have just as much fun making it as they do playing with it.

We just store it in a plastic baggie for later use.

How to Make Valentine’s Glitter Goo Recipe

  • 6 oz bottle Elmer’s Classic Glitter Glue
  • ¼ cup water
  • ¾ cup warm water
  • 1 t Borax


  • Pour the  bottle of glue into a large bowl
  • Add ¼ cup of water and mix together
  • In a separate bowl, mix together ¾ cup of warm water and the Borax.
  • Next, pour Borax mixture into the glue bowl.
  • Mix the glue and Borax mixture together and once it comes together in a clump or ball.
  • Knead and remove it from the mixture.
  • Continue kneading until it is a rubbery substance.

I usually double the recipe for my 3 kiddos because they all enjoy it so much. Ok, I like to play with it, too.

  33. Nice! When I taught preschool, I’d make a “slime” from plain white glue and liquid starch, but I like this one better because it looks a little more ‘solid.’ Thanks for the recipe!

  34. I remember years ago when slime first came out. It was that awful green color. I don’t recall what we did with it at the time.

  35. laura rubenstein says:

    YAY GOO!! I love glitter so it’s doubly cool

  36. Yes this looks fun, and it looks cool, but I fear it would not look so cool all over my house. I’d be afraid of the mess that would follow!…lol!

  37. Laura Grace Andry says:

    My kiddos love playing with slime and such. I bet this would be a big hit. Does the glitter come off and get everywhere or does it stay in the goop?

  38. oh how I love this for me forget the little ones lol

  69. greentopiaries says:

    What a fun activity for the little ones this Valentine’s! I remember I always loved anything gooey when I was little so this would also take me down memory lane, lol. 🙂

    Something for the grandkids to make and play with at home. No mess at grandma’s house.

  84. I would make home made play-doh. Less messy. The goo is a good idea. It’s just gooey.

  85. I’m a grown up and I would probably have just as much fun as the kids would playing with that stuff!

  86. Wished this was around when my daughter was still small.

  87. I will have to try this ty

  88. Susan Broughton says:

    Boy. what I wouldn’t have given to have a recipe for something like this in my childhood, I would have spent all day playing with it!
