This glittery, glow in the dark Galaxy Slime is absolutely mesmerizing! And so easy to make!
Have you noticed that many stores have a “slime section” lately? Whether it’s labeled as such or not, craft stores and grocery stores alike usually have a shelf or display filled with glue, glitter, and even activators like contact solution and liquid starch!
On one of our most recent Target trips, we couldn’t resist stocking up on all kinds of glitter glues and sequins. We’ve been using them for lots of different slime recipes!
My choice was black glitter glue because I knew it would be just perfect to make Galaxy Slime!
What is Galaxy Slime?
Galaxy Slime is sort of a catch-all term for slime recipes that remind you of outer space. Deep blues, purples, and even black colored slimes set the stage of the night sky, then are mixed with sparkling glitter and sequins to resemble stars.
There’s no “right” way to make Galaxy Slime – but some recipes are more complicated than others.
For our Galaxy Slime, we use a simple 2-ingredient slime recipe base, then added our glittery mix-ins.
Once our Galaxy Slime was ready, we added a batch of our Glow in the Dark Slime so it would really light up!
Here’s a behind-the-scenes look of my daughter and I making our glow in the dark galaxy slime recipe video:

How to Make Galaxy Slime
First, watch our quick video demo to see exactly how we made our easy Galaxy Slime! Then keep reading for photo step-by-step instructions and prep tips.
Click video below to play recipe tutorial:
Pour an entire bottle of black glitter glue to mixing bowl.
TIP: Skip the generic brands of glue and stick to name brands. We find that generic glue formulas don’t usually work as well (or at all).
Add 1/3 cup liquid starch to mixing bowl and stir briskly with a spoon until slime begins to clump together.
Finish kneading slime by hand, until it is no longer sticky. If slime does stick to hands, add a splash more liquid starch until it pulls free from hands.
I think this black galaxy slime is just gorgeous on it’s own, but we decided to mix in different colored sequins for even more sparkle.
We also made a batch of our Glow in the Dark Slime to add to our Galaxy Slime. You can make this glow in the dark slime with Elmer’s Magical Liquid or with the liquid starch recipe here.
How to Store Your Galaxy Slime
Store your galaxy slime in an airtight container or plastic zipper bag. If slime sticks to bag when you’re trying to get it out again, simply add a little liquid starch to release the slime from the sides of the bag.
To make your slime last longer, wash hands before playing to prevent as much contamination as possible and return to airtight container immediately after play.
