Oh my goodness, I was trying to get this glow in the dark slime recipe up on the blog before Halloween, but life got the best of me. Things just were busy last week just like everybody else. Halloween slap dab in the middle of the week seemed to throw me for a loop. The weekend before we just did a Halloween party with family and friends that happened to be super fun! Anyways, I am going to post this anyways and hopefully; you can give it a try even though Halloween has passed us by quickly! Its relatively simple and doesn’t take too many supplies to make. This slime recipe the kids loved to create and checked it out glowing in the container daily. I still get asked often to go into the dark to see it glowing!
Glow In The Dark Slime Supplies:
Liquid Starch –Sta-Flo DIA13101 Concentrated Liquid Starch, 64 Oz Bottle – Pack of 1
Clear Glue –ELMERS 2024691 Elmer’s Liquid School Glue, Clear, Washable, 32 Ounces – Great for Making Slime
Glow In The Dark Craft Paint – DecoArt DS50-10 Glow-in-the-Dark Paint, 4-Ounce
- Pour 1/4 cup liquid starch into a bowl and stir in 2 Tablespoons of the glow in the dark paint.
- When it is thoroughly mixed – pour in 1/4 cup of clear glue.
The slime, when done like the recipe above should be a great consistency but may change depending on the brand of paint you used. We had to do no extra steps, but I have seen others need to dab off some excess liquid after mixing. We bought these cool containers on Amazon for all the slime we tend to make here recently so we can keep it together and not use up all my plastic Tupperware for food. Here is the link if interested.

When the slime is of perfect consistency, you will need to “charge” it under a light before taking it into a dark room. You may use a black light if you have one or we just used a flashlight to charge it and test it in our bathroom. Any light will do for this project but the longer and brighter light the better it will glow. This project is perfect for kids of all ages and no matter what time of year. I know it seems much more Halloween related, but we will probably make this often since the kids love it so much. If you give it a try, please comment and let me know how it goes for you!
