Today I am sharing a super easy slime recipe that acts like a solid and a liquid at the same time!

With just 3 ingredients you can make this super sensory activity that will leave your toddler mesmerized! – and you probably already have the ingredients in your pantry!

Sparky Glitter Slime – Ingredients:

2 ½ cups Cornstarch

½ cup Shampoo

¼ cup Water

Glitter (or food coloring)


  • Place the cornstarch into a mixing bowl and add shampoo.
  • Mix well with a spoon until mixture is crumbly.
  • Add water 1 tbsp at a time, until desired consistency. If you make it too runny, just add a tablespoon of cornstarch, or if its too dry, just add more water.
  • Add glitter (or food coloring) and mix well!

Not too keen on mess? Me either! There are 2 ways we do this that easily contain the mess. Indoors in the bath, easy clean up and perfect for a rainy day or outdoors, in a tub or washing basket.

Slime will keep for a few days stored in an airtight container. It will dry out over time, so you will need to add a few teaspoons of water to rehydrate.

It’s that easy! I know you’ll want to get your hands into it too!
