Make Your Magical Fluffy Unicorn Slime Dreams Come True

Make slime with the kiddos! 🦄
This colorful and fluffy unicorn slime uses just three main ingredients, and it’s super fun to knead and play with.

This very basic slime uses Elmer’s glue, liquid starch, and shaving cream. Then you divide the slime into a few small bowls and add food coloring and glitter. My daughter calls these shiny cellophane flakes “unicorn skin”, and we used it in white slime for a pretty, iridescent effect.

Hip Tips:

Make sure to grab Stay-Flo brand liquid starch as I’ve tried other brands that haven’t worked out.

This can be a messy craft because of the glitter and food coloring, so protect the surface and clothing. I’d suggest this slime for older kids.

Apply hand lotion to your hands if the slime is too sticky at first (it’ll soften and become less sticky).

Keep in mind that once these colors are all mixed together, they’ll have a cool striped effect for a minute, but then will turn into a solid color if you keep kneading – in our case a brownish purple. 🙂

Slime can be stored in a covered container to make it last several days or even weeks. Just toss if/when it molds or dries out.

You can find the cute unicorn cake squishy toy pictured throughout the post on Amazon.

DIY Fluffy Unicorn Slime


Supplies Needed

  • 8 oz. Elmer's Glue in white, clear, or glitter variety
  • 1 cup shaving cream
  • food coloring and glitter for embellishing
  • 6 tablespoons liquid starch



Pour glue into a mixing bowl. Also add the shaving cream, and mix using a spoon until combined.


Divide the mixture into 3 different bowls.


Squirt a different color food coloring and/or glitter into each bowl. Just a few drops will do. Mix well. Make sure to use 3 different spoons for mixing, so the colors don’t combine.


Mix in 2 tablespoons of the liquid starch to each bowl. Stir and you’ll notice slime start to form. Keep stirring, then eventually use your hands to knead each bowl.


Lay slime side by side, and you can braid and twist it into pretty colors. Store in a covered container.

What fun unicorn slime! 
My daughter is 11 and still into creating slime with her friends and watching all the slime videos online. This is fun for summer break or a unicorn-themed birthday party activity! We made several batches just to create different colors. So cute!

I love that you can really be creative and add all the glitter you want. I wasn’t sure that the gold glitter would turn out, but and that ended up our favorite color!
