Learn how to make an easy glow in the dark slime recipe! This DIY slime is basic to make and big fun to play with! Plus, it doesn’t use any borax or contact solution!
My son and I love to make slime of all sorts because it’s FUN! Glow in the dark slime is ooey gooey messy play without much of an actual mess for mom to clean up, making it an official #momwin.
How to Make Glow in the Dark Slime
Glow in the dark slime is easy to make! It’s made up of two easy to find ingredients and a few minutes of kneading- the perfect recipe for a kid to do almost completely by themselves!
In a bowl, mix up equal parts of glow in the dark glue and liquid starch.
Knead the ingredients for a few minutes until a blob of slime forms. If it seems too sticky, knead in a small amount of liquid starch until slime has reached your desired consistency.
To make 1 cup of glow in the dark slime, we mixed 1/2 cup of glow in the dark glue with 1/2 cup of liquid starch.
Just like most glow in the dark things, your slime will glow the most if you “charge” it in direct sunlight before taking it into a dark closet or room- the darker the space, the brighter the glow!
How to Store Glow in the Dark Slime
When it’s time to store glow in the dark slime, it will keep very well in an airtight container at room temperature for about 3 months. If it sits in the container for awhile, sometimes the slime will separate back into its original parts!
Just squish and knead it back together- it’ll be good as new!

If after kneading the slime is still sticky, pour a tablespoon of starch into the bowl and drag the slime through it. Knead until well combined. Repeat as needed.
Take into a sunny room or outdoors in full sunlight to "charge" and then take it in a very dark space and see what happens!
