If you’re looking for an awesome sensory craft that your child will love, look no further than these Celebration Slime recipe! It’s ooey, gooey fun that’s fun of cool colors and glitter. What’s not to love?!
When it comes to creating crafts in our home, slime is one activity that is always on our radar. And honestly, it’s understandable. Slime is fun, it’s stretchy, and it just feels…good.
Contrary to what you might have heard, not all slime has to make a big, sticky mess! Some slimes are great to make and have fun with! And this celebration slime recipe is one that you won’t want to miss!
I actually love this slime recipe for many different reasons. First off, it looks really cool.
And secondly, it’s versatile to be able to create as use. As most of you know, we like to make things in our homes that are around seasons, holidays or events. This Celebration Slime is perfect for the 4th of July, summer birthdays or just as a fun sensory activity that we’re going to work into our summer curriculum.
I often get asked if there can be too much glitter added to this slime recipe…and is there really a “thing” as too much glitter? While the recipe calls for a certain amount, you can alter that depending on your wants.
And if you don’t want to have any glitter in your slime, you can take it out completely if you want. It’ll change the appearance but your child will still get to have fun with the slime!

Now, slowly stir adding in your liquid starch, constantly stirring as you do.
Once done, knead and mess with the slime to get it to a good consistency. (See? You get to have fun making it as well!)
Your slime will last longer if you store in an air tight container when not being played with!
