Galaxy Slime & Galaxy Playdough

Updated: Oct 28, 2020

Galaxy Slime: 


Add the glitter glue into a bowl and stir in 1/4 cup of water. Mix well.



Add a few drops of liquid watercolor to create the desired color. Add in the star confetti.


Pour in 1/4 cup liquid starch and stir to combine. The slime will start to separate from the sides of the bowl — remove it from the bowl and knead with your hands until it is no longer sticky and stretches easily.



Repeat with the remaining colors and ingredients to create three different colors of slime: blue, pink, and purple.



Stretch the layers together to create a gorgeous galaxy effect!


So cool, right? We also really love to play with magnetic slime. There are so many different variations that you can make!


GALAXY PLAYDOUGH

We are just a little crazy for kid’s Galaxy crafts and activities and this galaxy playdough is no different. From Galaxy Slime to The Galaxy In a Bottle, the glitter and vibrant colors are simply engaging.

Kids will love this soft sparkly playdough, it’s a great boredom buster! It is also educational in its own right and can teach about colors, shapes, and astronomy.


This galaxy play-doh is one of my favorite crafts. The beautiful colors and silver sparkles are mesmerizing.

Paired with star cookie cutters, rolling pins, and silver pipe cleaners, it will keep little hands busy for hours!


SUPPLIES NEEDED TO MAKE GALAXY PLAY-DOH

The supplies aren’t too crazy and the best part is, most of them can be found in your cupboard. That makes this amazing beautiful galaxy play-doh craft ideal.

MATERIALS: 

  • 1 cup flour

  • 1 cup water

  • 1/2 cup salt

  • 1 TSBP vegetable oil

  • 1 TSP Cream of Tartar

  • Purple, turquoise, and pink food coloring

  • Pink, turquoise, and silver glitter

  • Silver glitter stars

Note: The recipe above makes 1 batch of playdough. To make Galaxy Playdough, you will need to make 3 batches (pink, purple, and turquoise).


It will be easier to make 3 different batches in rather than one big batch to break up as it gets very dense.

HOW TO MAKE GALAXY PLAY-DOH

DIRECTIONS:

Stir all of the ingredients (except the glitter) together in a saucepan. Cook over medium heat until the playdough mixture thickens and clumps together. Dump the playdough onto the counter and cool.


The colors are so vibrant.


After the playdough is cool to the touch, combine all 3 colors together. Knead gently to create a beautiful, marbled effect.

It may take you a few minutes to get the desire effect you’re looking for, but be careful about overmixing by twisting right off the bat or you will end up with a single color.


I love the swirls in the “galaxy”.

Pour the glitter onto the playdough and gently mix it in. This is my favorite part! I love glitter of all types.


To avoid a mess you can do this part over a paper plate or like a cookie sheet so you can dump the excess glitter in the trash instead of it sticking to every surface for all eternity.


Look how shiny!


Kids can use small cookie cutters to cut star shapes from the playdough. You can also use circle cookie cutters to make moons! Take a plastic knife and cut the moon in half to make a half moon or cut a sliver off to make a crescent moon.  I found this really cute set of space cookie cutters on Amazon!



Make as many stars and other shapes as you want!


Adding silver pipe cleaners will turn those stars into shooting stars! You could also add gold, pink, blue, or purple to make it a little extra.

If you leave them out you can have hardened little stars.

Or take it a step further and poke a hole in the tip and let it harden and you can tie a string through it and you have beautiful ornaments or decor to hang in your room!


Star light….star bright


Kids love this fun playdough!

I think this playdough, combined with small space toys and books, would make an adorable birthday present for curious kids.
