There is something magical about unicorns and unicorn poop! For generations, kids have been in love with unicorns. Today, make your kids the happiest on the block when you learn how to make unicorn slime using the unicorn slime recipe! Kids will love the pretty blended colors that sparkle and shine in the light. Keep the colors separate for long-term play, or mix them together to make a solid purple slime! You won’t believe how easy it is to make this version of unicorn slime. Check out all of our slime recipes here.
Making slime is a favorite in our home. We have made butter slime, fluffy slime, how to make slime without Borax and how to make slime without glue. Yes, slime has even gotten on our clothes and we learned how to get slime out of clothes too.
When we were doing a Unicorn Theme week, we had so many fun activities to choose from. I wanted to incorporate some science into our lesson plan. We did the Letter U for Unicorn craft and created Unicorn yoghurt bites too.
We are also always looking for ways to make slime clean up easier. By using plastic cups and sticks to mix you can literally make this slime and throw away all of those mixing cups! All that would be left to clean is just putting the glue and laundry detergent away.

UNICORN SLIME RECIPE
Set out 3 bowls on a table.
In each bowl, add 1/3 of a cup of water and a 1/3 of a cup of glue.
Add glitter into each bowl.
Put the tiniest bit of food coloring into each bowl. The more food coloring you add, the darker the slime will be, taking away some of the “unicorn” effect.
Add 1/3 of a cup of starch to each bowl and stir until the slime is no longer sticky.
Pull a piece of each color of slime and stretch it slightly.
Twist the three strands of slime together to make unicorn slime!
Add little unicorn figurines to the slime for even more fun.
You can also use this time to work on a bit of color mixing theory. These three colors can be mixed to make purple, orange, and green! Check out even more unique slimes! I love the unicorn slime colors!
