Unicorn Hair Slime

Unicorn slime has to be one of my favorite versions of slime we’ve ever made. It’s the 2nd time we’ve made it now and one of the biggest lessons I’ve learned is that this works much better making smaller portions of slime, it’s much harder to control the results with large amounts. There are so many batches of slime in this one that it also really saves glue and money to keep it small, because you still get a good amount anyway with so many colors in it. It takes a while to get it prepped but once you do it’s a lot of fun to see the way the colors blend and twist!

To get started you will need:

  • Clear elmer’s school glue
  • White elmer’s school glue 
  • Liquid Starch
  • Water
  • Pink, purple, blue, and green food dye 
  • Iridescent and/or holographic glitter
  • A bowl for mixing
  • Popsicle sticks or spoon for stirring 
  • Paper plates 
  1. We’re going to start with making the 5 batches with the white school glue. In the mixing bowl, add 1/8 cup of glue and a table spoon of water and thoroughly mix until it’s milky with no chunks or strings of glue 
  2. Add food coloring and mix until totally blended
  3. Add 1/8 cup of liquid starch and immediately start mixing quickly in a circular motion. I have found if the liquid starch stays in the glue mixture for too long before mixing it really affects the texture of the slime. Mix quickly in circles until it starts wrapping itself around the stick like it was whipped
  4. Grab all the slime off the stick and any large clumps in the bowl. It will feel pretty wet and slimy, so to get the right texture start smashing it back and forth between your hands, and stretching and kneading it. This will get the excess moisture out and get it ready to stretch. 
  5. Place it on a plate, and repeat with the 3 other colors. Repeat once more but without food dye to create a plain white batch (I like to wash my hands before I start kneading this one so it doesn’t pick up any color off of my hands)
  6. I’ve found letting the slime sit for a few minutes also improves its texture, so lay all 5 batches made from the white glue out on paper plates to rest while you begin with the glitter slime. Make sure the batches are layed out in a way they won’t run into each other. 
  7. To start the glitter slime, the steps are very similar, except we will be making a larger amount and using the clear glue. Add 1/4 cup clear glue to the mixing bowl and add 1/8 cup water, and mix all the way until you no longer see clear streaking in the mixture 
  8. When it’s all the way mixed, add whatever blend of glitter you prefer, we used iridescent and holographic glitters. Add a little at a time, but make sure the glue mixture is pretty saturated with it.
  9. Once the glitter is completely mixed in, add 1/4 cup liquid starch and immediately begin stirring quickly in circles, same as with the first batches. Once it’s solidified and wrapped itself up in a lump in the middle, remove and squish and knead and stretch until it no longer feels wet and is nice and pliable, and let it rest on a plate for a few minutes.
  10. Now that all the batches are finished and they have sat for a few minutes, lay them across a new paper plate in thin stripes, then allow them to sit for 5 minutes to blend into each other.
  11. Once the slime on the plate has flattened out and the colors have began to melt into each other, pick it up, stretch and enjoy watching the colors swirl and blend into each other!
