Directions for Making Galaxy Slime
The best part of this galaxy slime is that it looks like stars and the solar system, so you can teach about this as you go along in the process of making it.
Add your glue to a bowl then add the color. You want to mix as you go and make sure everything is blended well before adding the next ingredient to the mix. Then add the glitter, as much or as little as you think you need. You can usually tell how much by looking. Then slowly add the starch into the mix as you stir.
Once you get a certain way into it, you will need to knead the galaxy slime like dough. You may not even need all of the starch that the recipe calls for. It all depends on how stretchy you want the slime to turn out.
This is also a great craft for those kids with sensory learning. You can teach them through fun and crafts!
