We love crafting with our kiddos. It’s a fun way to help pass the long summer days and when you’re done, they still have something to do… win-win! We were asked by the cute Rachel from R&R Workshop to participate in her month long Disney series. Who doesn’t love Disney?? We are taking our kiddos to see Maleficent for family night tonight and are so excited! They’re old enough that they won’t be too scared and are stoked to see a twist on the classic, Sleeping Beauty. Of course we had to accompany the movie with a fun themed craft and hope you love our Maleficent glitter slime recipe!
The recipe is easy to make, we followed this tutorial but changed it up a smidge after trial-and-error. Here is your list of (affiliate link) supplies:
- 1/2 teaspoon Borax (laundry aisle)
- 1/2 cup warm water
- mason jar
- medium size bowl
- 8 oz bottle white school glue
- Empty glue into bowl.
- Fill the empty glue bottle with water, shake, add to the glue in the bowl.
- Add food coloring *optional
- Add craft glitter *optional
- In mason jar, add warm water + Borax, shake well.
- Slowly add Borax mixture to bowl and stir with a spoon until it thickens.
- *More Borax will lead to a firmer slimer, less Borax will make it stringy.
- *It’s fun to knead with your hands too!
That’s all there is to the recipe. My 11 year old daughter made another batch of pink glitter slime just for fun, super kid friendly and easy to make.
We agreed it looks like Sleeping Beauty so we put them in two mason jars and decorated the tops to keep with the theme.
For the Maleficent horns, just trace a shape on black scrapbook paper and cut out. Using purple embroidery floss, wrap the floss around the ears and tape to the backside. Then tape them to the top of the mason jar that you paint black with DecoArt’s chalky finish. For Aurora, we added a Loopsy crown but you can make one from yellow scrapbook paper too.
Don’t forget to check back with Rachel to keep up with all the new Disney projects coming out all month long!
