Milky Way Slime
Step 1
PROJECT NOTES:
   -  You can mix and match any type of Elmer’s® glue for this recipe.
   -  This project is intended for ages 4+. When you’re crafting with kids, keep an eye on the sequins, since these may present a choking hazard.
   -  When making slime, be smart and protect your work surface with wax (or parchment) paper. You also may want to wear an apron (or other protective garment) to avoid slime-related accidents.
 
This galactically gorgeous slime is made from one batch of glitter glue slime, so start out by finding your favorite glitter glue slime recipe. You’ll follow your recipe’s instructions for making the slime, then add mix-ins according to our instructions below.

Step 2
Follow your recipe’s instructions to make one batch of black glitter slime.  
Step 3
Flatten out your slime on a piece of wax (or parchment) paper and sprinkle on your favorite colors from the set of glitter shakers. Fold the slime’s edges in toward the center to blend the glitter into the slime. 
Step 4

Repeat the technique in Step 3 to blend some sequin stars into the slime. Continue folding and stretching until all the stars are evenly distributed throughout the slime.

TIP: We have all kinds of fun star sequins in our kids’ department, so be sure to pick out any others that you’d like to light up your Milky Way slime!

Step 5
Place a handful or two of your slime into a treat bag, so that it’s filled about halfway. Use a twist tie to close your bag. Now, stick some gold glitter stars onto your bag – you can never have too many stars!

TIP: If you plan to keep your slime for more than a few hours, be sure to store it in an airtight, sealable container (or a re-sealable plastic bag).
