Boys Fluffy Glitter Slime Recipe
Not all glitter slime recipes are the same! By using shaving cream, you can make your glitter slime recipe fluffy and more fun to manipulate!
Boys Glitter Slime Recipe with Liquid Starch
Keep in mind, all glitter slime recipes using clear glue will require double the amount of Liquid Starch than a normal slime recipe (which you will see with the recipe below). Clear glue is actually stickier than white school glue. As a result, your glitter slime recipe needs more starch to counteract that.

Boys Glitter Slime Recipe Supplies
You’ll need a plastic container and spoon for each color you mix. (I like using Glad containers myself.) I find metal spoons work best (and they come clean easily).
Making Glitter Slime for Boys
In your container, mix about two or so cups of your white glue. This isn’t an exact science, think of it as a recipe where you have to add a little dash of this or that to make it just right!
Carefully spray shaving cream into the bowl, about one cup to start off with. Mix well and add more shaving cream little by little, but do not go over the amount of glue that you have in your container or it’ll become too hard.
Once mixed together well, add your first food coloring into the mixture, about 2-3 drops, and blend until well combined.
From there, add in 2-3 tablespoons of Liquid Starch. As you begin to stir you will notice it begin to form immediately – great! Stir, stir, stir! Get it good and gloppy and take it out of your container to knead in your hands before you set aside to work on your next color.
Repeat the same steps with a different color – easy peasy!
Once all your colors are made, lay them out side-by-side on your work surface, like below.
Twist your colors together to get started. Gah, isn’t that stunning???
From here, the sky’s the limit? Make a rope? Make a knot?
Get stretchy with it! (Said in her best 90’s rap gangsta mom kind of way.)
My boys sure love making “Slime Fingers!”
The more you manipulate and knead the slime colors together, they will begin to form a new color!
NOTE: To make slime, you have to understand that it isn’t an exact science. I can give you basics as to what to start off with when learning how to make glitter slime, but you have to add a little here and a little there in order to get the desired result, ESPECIALLY when it comes to glitter slime, because glitter glue is sticky.
- To make the silver glitter slime, use the recipe found here.
- For your first color, pour about 2 cups of white glue into your plastic container.
- Carefully spray in about 1 cup of shaving cream into your container; mix well. (If you feel you want it fluffier, you can go up to 2 cups, but if you add too much, it’ll get too hard.)
- Add in your first color, stir until well-colored.
- Add 2-3 tablespoons of Liquid Starch and stir – you will notice as soon as this ingredient is added, the mixture begins to form immediately.
- Mix until well blended and “goopy” and remove from your container to knead – set aside to create your next color by repeating the above steps. (We created two solid colors here. You can find the glitter slime recipe to add here.
