Confetti Slime is so fun, it may have won over my heart as my new favorite slime. Normally we are used to regular slimes like rainbow slime or striped slime, but this confetti slime makes it extra fun by adding not only gorgeous confetti but a new texture to squeeze and play with.
Confetti Slime without Borax
That being said, it can be pretty hard to find liquid starch, so pick this one up here (it’s the one I use) as well as a huge thing of glue so you can make tons of slime for all occasions. Buying this way is a lot more cost effective and once you start making slime, you will def want to have glue on hand!
When it comes to the gallon size glue, if this one is out, go to the “Available by these sellers”. Due to the popularity of many of MomDots recipes, stock seems to come and go on this item. If you see one, grab it! Its IMPOSSIBLE to find gallon glue in the stores!
Learn how to make slime here! I made this super short video to show you how to make slime and see some of the stages! Check it out~
- First lets talk about supplies. I use liquid starch in nearly all of my slimes. I used to use borax but balancing out the right consistency is hard and not kid friendly. Using liquid starch is safer (says GRETA FOR CRAFTS on the bottle) and has results you can trust. This makes sure your kids are not disappointed when creating this project.
- GLUE! I highly recommend just buying a gallon of glue from Amazon so you don’t have to be stingy. Plus if you make a mistake, you have extra to counter balance or create more. There is nothing worse than wanting to start over and you don’t have the glue on hand. A 4oz bottle of glue won’t net you much more than about 2/3rds a cup (I believe) and adding confetti like this is a one time play.
- COLORS! To get bright beautiful colors you can use Wilton’s Color Right Performance Color. I like it because it doesn’t water down the glue and provides bright vivid colors. You can grab a set here and its what I will be using for all my slime recipes this point forward.
Here are some tips on creating a good slime to play with.
- Normally the ratio to a good slime is about 1/2 cup white glue and 1/3 cup starch. You simply mix the two together and start kneading it back and forth until its no longer sticky.
- The more starch you add, the thicker and more low flow your slime will get. If you add too much starch, it can become hard as a rock. While 1/3 starch works for us, I recommend putting a bit less (try 1/4th) and check out that consistency and see if its what you want before adding a little more.
- One thing that works for us is to do about 1/4th starch and mix and then let the slime sit in the bowl for a few minutes. It allows the glue and starch to work together. The real issue with slime fails is that most people do not knead it long enough. Treat it bread dough- it takes a little bit of time.
In Confetti slime, make your orange (or whatever color you want) slime and then add foil confetti. Fold it over, throw confetti at it and feel the crunch through it! Its so much fun and the kids love it.
Stages of Slime
So many people message me and ask me how I get slime so perfect…..well, it goes through stages and some people quit before they get to the slimy stage! I did a video showing you what you can expect when you create your slime. It’s a lot easier than you think. Yes, there are two ads in this video near the beginning, which help pay for all this slime recipes and ideas that are provided here and we appreciate your support in keeping those costs down. I think you will like this video and it will help get you less frustrated in creating slime and figuring out the direction you are going. Please note this video is specifically about using WHITE glue. Clear glues and glitter glues are a different consistency.
