Your kids will love making this Fourth of July slime to celebrate the holiday.

My kids love making slime. Even though we have quite a collection of slime in our house, we are always looking for new ways to make it. Making slime is such an easy activity that makes my kids happy. My oldest daughter is eleven, she loves thinking up ways to make the slime different each time.

This time we decided to make red, white and blue slime, since the Fourth of July is just around the corner. We added in some silver glitter to the slime this time. We did have a few problems with the glitter. My oldest accidently poured most of the bottle of glitter into her first color, then knocked the remaining glitter over. Oh glitter, how I despise you. Dyson handheld to the rescue.

One of the great things about making slime is that all the supplies are available on You don’t even have to leave the house to get them.

If you’re looking for more slime recipes here’s a few.

The ingredients for Fourth of July slime are:

Making the slime:

Each color is made separately then braided together.

  • Pour 1/2 cup of school glue into a bowl, add 1tbsp of water and stir

  • Now add in your food coloring and glitter and stir. For the white slime we didn’t use any food coloring.

  • Slowly add in 1/4 cup of liquid starch. I had my kids keep stirring while I poured it in. The slime will be very watery at first, but after you stir and kneed it for awhile it will turn into a normal slime consistency.

  • Put the slime you just made aside and repeat the process for the other colors.

 My kids had so much fun making this. The finished product is so awesome.
