Ingredients to make galaxy slime:

½ cup water

How to make Galaxy Slime without borax or liquid starch
To make this DIY galaxy slime recipe, you will pour the entire bottle of black glitter glue into a bowl.
Next, you will add a ½ cup of water to the bowl.
Then add in ½ teaspoon baking soda and stir.
Finally, add 1 tablespoon of contact solution. The slime will instantly begin to form.
The diy slime mixture will be sticky, but don't worry, you haven't made it wrong. Mix the solution in the bowl until it starts to pull away from the edges of the bowl. Knead the slime until it is no longer sticky. Set it to the side.
In another bowl, pour 5 oz of clear glue.
Then add ½ cup of water and stir. Pour a few drops of purple food coloring.
Now comes the fun part - adding the glitter! Don’t be shy! I combined light purple and hot pink glitter.
Mix in the glitter and then add in ½ teaspoon of baking soda and stir. Add 1 tablespoon of contact solution. Knead the slime until it is no longer sticky. Set aside the purple slime.
Follow the same steps you used to make the purple slime to make the teal slime. Only, instead of using the purple food coloring, you will use the teal food coloring. Then use teal and gold glitter instead of the pink and purple.
Now you will have 3 colors of sparkly fun slime. The real magic happens when you swirl all three colors of slime together.

Frequently asked questions
This slime can be stored in an airtight container if your kids don't want to play with it right away. After noticing my kids leaving slime everywhere and finding lots of messes, I purchased these containers and they have been a life saver.
Don't mix it too much. When you start to mix it a lot, it will turn black, which is still really pretty and sparkly.
