I admit it, naming this slime recipe Unicorn poop slime gave me pause, but my kids insist – because, well, unicorn poop. Because unicorn poop is silly and slime is totally awesome and together it’s like mixing rainbows and kittens.

You may be asking yourself, what exactly IS unicorn poop. Well… according to about every major source out there, unicorns poop rainbows. Therefore, anything with rainbows is unicorn poop by default.

Unicorn Poop Slime Recipe
Now before you get started, you will need a few things to learn how to make slime.
Unicorn Poop Slime Ingredients
- White school glue – I always use GALLON-SIZED GLUE. Tiny bottles do not produce a lot of slime and this is an addicting project. Go ahead and get the gallon size. I have only seen gallon sized in craft stores like Michael’s and on Amazon (free shipping with Prime!)
- Liquid Starch – This can be impossible to find, so also better to grab it online
- Food coloring – I use Wilton’s Color Right for the best and brightest results – do not use gel coloring, because it’s hard to break up. This is a liquid colorant and does not dilute the glue.
How to Make Unicorn Poop Slime
Making unicorn poop slime is more of an art than a science. There is so much that goes into the making of the slime, that merely measuring out is not going to solve all your slime issues.
This recipe will work out really well, I promise, but you’ll have to finesse it to get the texture just the way you want.
- First, pour approximately 1 cup of white glue into a bowl.
- Add your Wilton’s Food Colorant and stir.
- Now add about 1/3rd- 1/4th cup liquid starch to the bowl and stir.
You will immediately see the slime form up.
- Continue stirring for a minute or so and then pick up and begin kneading your slime.
I have added a video below on how to make slime and can help you if you have questions.
Once your slime is made, sit down and let it flatten out.
Combine your slimes for this pretty Unicorn Poop striped look. You will need 3-4 colors.
Unicorn Poop Slime without Borax
So why no borax in this poop slime?
PRO TIP: Many people do not like to deal with borax and water when making slime. You can also make slime by using LIQUID STARCH and glue.
It’s a ton easier. Simply use about 1/3rd cup starch in 1/2 cup glue (do this per color) and add starch little by little until you get the slime consistency you want.
Once it’s set, then separate the white slime and dye the colors you want in solo cups.
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!
