We like using this easy liquid starch slime recipe!

There are so many ways to make slime, and today I’m sharing how to make clear slime using Stay-Flo liquid starch and Elmer’s Clear glue. You could try other brands, but I know for sure that these two will work well together from past experience! My kids make this liquid starch slime recipe all the time because it’s so simple to mix together.

The combination of clear glue and liquid starch produces a nice clear slime that allows you to embellish with glitter and confetti. These embellishments really stand out inside the clear slime, and the end result is so festive! You could also use white glue if you prefer and the result will be similar, but your base slime will turn out white instead of clear.

In a bowl, mix together glue and water using a spoon.


Add in the desired amount of confetti and glitter. No need to measure as there can never be too much glitter – ha!


Mix in liquid starch. You’ll notice it start to activate right away and start turning into slime. Keep stirring for several minutes and then eventually use your hands to manipulate into a big ball of slime. Enjoy!

Are your kids obsessed with slime and excited to stay up on New Year’s Eve? If so, this glittery slime NYE activity will keep everyone busy and feeling festive.

Keep in mind that slime can last for weeks when stored in a tightly covered container, but it won’t last forever. Be sure to toss it if it gets moldy or develops an unpleasant smell. Keeping your slime cool can extend its life even further, so consider storing it in the refrigerator inside an airtight container for extended use.
