We have a new love at our house! Slime! Since we’ve been living overseas where I couldn’t get the ingredients for slime, we were excited to try it out now that we are in the U.S. Because my daughter’s are obsessed with all things ‘princess’ I thought that pink princess slime would be a great way to introduce them to this super fun sensory experience.
We combine the wonderfully gooey texture with lots of pink and purple sparkles creating a great time of exploration for a few super crazy, princess-loving kiddos.
Materials needed to make Pink Princess Slime:
- 1/2 cup liquid Starch (Sta-flo)
- 1/2 cup school glue
- 1/2 cup water
- Pink gel food coloring
- pink and purple glitter
- Princess gems and buttons
In a medium sized bowl combine the water and school glue until they are thoroughly mixed. This is the time you will want to add any food coloring and glitter. The more food coloring you add, the darker it will become.
Now, add the liquid starch.
The slime will start to come together almost instantly. Stir until you can no longer stir it with a spoon. Then, knead it for a couple minutes with your hands.
We set ours aside for about 10 minutes and it turned out to be a wonderful texture. You can play with it immediately, but it tends to be less sticky if you just wait.
Then the kids played it for a while exploring the texture and the super stretchiness.
We also made some designs with the gems and buttons. The girls loved how the buttons would sink in, but they could still pull them out. They had some fun playing hide and seek with the buttons.
If you remove the gems and buttons after you are done playing, they will come clean with a good soak in warm soapy water. That way you can use them again in the slime or in another project.
Check out the glow in the dark slime, too!
I hope you enjoy the Princess slime as much as we did!
