If you are on a sprinkle slime recipe whirlwind, you will find this slime tons of fun and one that you will want to put on the forefront of all your slime making! I adore making sprinkle slime and it has manifested itself in many ways around here. From birthday cake slime to rainbow explosion slime (both listed below), adding sprinkles to your slime brings a certain amount of magic and wonder to this awesome science project.
NOTE: This slime explodes with mini rainbows using my very simple sprinkle tip! And while it looks good enough to eat, it most definitely cannot be eaten. Please make sure you only play science projects like this with kids of an age that can tell the difference in food and slime.
Sprinkle Slime Recipe
Lets get started on making your sprinkle slime recipe! First you need a base and to create your fluffy slime! Leave it without coloring at all so you can see the magic of the sprinkles. For this, you will just need your glue, starch, and shaving cream!
Fluffy slime has a poofier more dense slime and the shaving cream additive makes it less sticky and more fool proof to original slime recipes. Its also less sticky and easier to maintain a consistent result.

- White school glue – I always use GALLON SIZED GLUE. Slime projects always lead to more slime and you cannot get a gallon in the store. I highly recommend just getting the big one as a more cost effective strategy.
- Liquid Starch – This can be impossible to find, so also better to grab online
- Nonpareils – You need tiny round sprinkles
- Shaving Cream: I like the puffy white shaving cream
Ready to make your slime look amazing with sprinkles?
- Start with about 2 cups of white glue and pour into a bowl – you don’t have to measure it, just eyeball it.
- Add about 1 cup of shaving cream. I like the puffy kind like Barbasol. If you need another full recipe on how to make fluffy slime head there.
- Now its time to make your slime. Add about 1/3rd- 1/4th cup liquid starch to the bowl and stir. You do not need to measure it, just pour and stir. Its a science project after all. You will immediately see the slime form up. Continue stirring a minute or so and then pick up and begin kneading your slime. I have added a video on the article below on how to make slime and can help you if you have questions.
- Once you have your white fluffy slime made, you can spread it out and add your sprinkles. Wait about 15-30 seconds for the sprinkles to sit and then slowly stretch your slime to see rainbows and streaks left behind. The sprinkles leave dye behind and eventually turn white themselves.
