I always thought liquid starch slime was too difficult to make, but then I tried it! Now we are hooked on it. Grab some liquid starch and glue and get started! We have even made it with a small group of kids for a science party!

Rainbow slime is amazing. It is simply the best slime experience we have had! And oh my gosh we LOVE easy HOMEMADE SLIME! There’s nothing better than whipping up a quick batch of our simple slime recipe! Our beautifully colored, shimmery rainbow slime is perfect any tine of the year.


 5 bottles of clear Elmer’s Washable School Glue
Liquid starch
2 bowls and a spoon for each batch {or wash as you go}
Liquid food coloring

I used 4-6 drops of food coloring per batch. The red and green required the larger amount. To make the secondary colors I mixed three drops of yellow and two of red to make orange. Purple was three red and two blue drops. Green was it’s own color but needed 5-6 drops. You can play around with the colors as you like. Our red was on the lighter side, but he wanted it that way! I love how clear glue makes this rainbow slime shimmer and shine.

If you can’t get your hands on clear glue, try white! Your rainbow slime might be a bit more on the pastel side depending on how much color you use. I have tried dollar store and generic brand glues and they just aren’t as good. I suggest sticking with the good stuff if you want to make it right the first time!

My son loves to help measure and mix the ingredients but prefers to wait for the less messy end product. Our slime, once made, is not sticky or messy! The mixing is, so that’s my job. We played with the slimes individually and talked about coloring mixing. He could not wait to mix the rainbow slime together.

We were able to stretch out the rainbow slime colors and place them next to each other to build a rainbow. At this point, the colored slimes could easily be separated. Once the real hands on play started, the colors really started to mix in beautiful ways.
