Surprisingly, this is my first time making slime. I have no idea how I have a 9, 5, and soon-to-be 4 year old without having made slime yet. They simply haven’t asked to make it.
I have a feeling that is all going to change now. Still, you see all of these fun and colorful slime recipes on Pinterest. At some point, you just have to give them a try.Moms and kids alike will love squishing this easy patriotic metallic stars slime through their fingers! Click To Tweet
The Inspiration Pin
Technically this is one of many inspiration pins. There are so many fun slime recipes and it feels like I have pinned them all. Also, I was going to try a traditional slime recipe but found this awesome Elmer’s slime mix and decided to give it a try.
Glittery Patriotic Slime Ingredients
- Clear Non-toxic Liquid Glue (Here is a great deal on Elmer’s Brand)
- Elmer’s Slime Solution
- 1 tbsp. Cornstarch
- Star Confetti
First, pour your entire bottle of glue into a glass mixing bowl.
Next, add 1/4 cup of Elmer’s Slime Solution and stir together.
- You don’t need to dirty a measuring cup to complete this step. The bottle comes with a handy guide on the side. Pour in small amounts at a time until you reach the first line.
Add 1 tbsp. of cornstarch to your slime and mix it into your slime by kneading it.
- The recipe doesn’t call for this on the slime solution bottle. We found that the slime was too sticky without it.
- You can see that our stars are already added in the photo (because after about 10 minutes of kneading it was still super sticky) but I recommend adding it now.
Now sprinkle 1/3 to 1/2 of your stars confetti onto your slime.
Then knead in your stars until they are spread throughout your slime.
Remove the mixture from your bowl and knead until you have reached your desired consistency.
Store in an air tight container when the slime is not in use.
I have to say, I’m kind of loving this slime. It’s cathartic squishing it through your fingers over and over. Looks like this easy patriotic metallic stars slime is going on the favor list this Memorial Day weekend! Oh, and the kids love it too. Shock, right?

I’m a nerdy, crafty mom of three adorable little kids. I love writing and creating, but in my non-existent free time I also love karaoke, taking my kids to the zoo, and reading. I got my degree in Science (no idea how that happened) but I took every English class I could get my hands on because, yeah, I’m that girl.
