Create your own red, white and blue slime to play with on Independence Day!

Create some patriotic slime with red, white and blue clay stars mixed in. All the kids will love playing with it while waiting to see fireworks.

I have recently gotten into making slimes and wanted to be able to combine my love of polymer clay with my new found love of slime. I was brainstorming for a patriotic craft idea and I thought about what can I do with my mini star cutter and that’s when the lightbulb went off.

What you need:

Start with equal parts of red, white and blue clay.

Pix the clay till you have a nice marble look. Don’t over-mix, or you will just have purple clay.

Flatten your clay. I used a clay machine at setting #1. Use your star cutter to cut out some stars. For easy cut out removal, I like to dip my cutter in corn starch before use. Bake all your stars at 265 for 15 minutes.

Dissolve 1/2 teaspoon in 1/2 cup warm water and set aside.

Pour the entire 5 oz. bottle of clear glue into a medium sized bowl. Try to get all the glue out.

When the water is room temperature pour it into your bowl with the glue. Mix the water and glue together with a plastic spoon.

Add your choice of glitters and mix well.

Slowly add contact solution by adding a little at a time then mixing. I added a total of 3 1/2 teaspoons to my mix. if you add too little, it will be too sticky and too much makes the mixture rubbery.

Create your own red, white and blue slime to play with on Independence Day!

Take your mixture out of the bowl and knead it a little. Place your stars on top of the slime.

DIY your own slime for patriotic fun!

Fold and mix your stars into the slime. Store in a plastic container or bag. I put mine in 2 oz. plastic containers and the slime mixture filled up 6 of these.

    I know I could Google it… But I’m confused… What is the purpose of the slime? I think in your article you should include why someone would make slime. Is this like a silly putty type thing for kids to play with or something? I saw a link to your craft in an email and I had to come look because I had no idea what it was… But I’m still not all that clear after reading your article… Help?

    Talula,
    I was confused myself the first time I started seeing things about the slime craze. I had to try it for myself and I really enjoyed making it. It was so satisfying to be able to create my own slime. It is more stretchy than a putty and can be stretched into thin transparent sheets. It is so fun to play with. I gave some to my 5 year old and, my sisters that are teens all 3 of them had a blast playing with it. I think my 16 year old sister had the most fun with it out of all of them. It was both fun for me to make and fun for the kids to play with so I plan on making more. I hope that helps and thank you so much for checking out my blog post.
