Mess-Free Glitter Slime

Mess-Free Glitter Slime

Oh Slime! That sticky, gooey, and stretchy fun stuff. It’s all the rage with kids these days. It’s all over social media, and every other kid has probably tried making their own, at least once. We’ve tried several recipes ourselves. Most with simple ingredients that can be found around the house, and all pretty easy to make. They all made slime, but every one included a pretty messy process.  While the recipe with the household cleaner Borax seems to be the more popular one out there, we’ve stayed away from using it due to safety concerns.

Zoë has been bugging me to let her make more slime for weeks. I’ve been giving her silly excuses and putting it off, because in reality, this momma just can’t deal with all the sticky mess. The last one we made left me cleaning up slimy residue for a while, and worse, it left some food coloring stains on some of her clothes, too! Which is why I was ecstatic to find this new recipe. No Borax, no detergent, no shaving cream, and no food coloring, this 3-ingredient slime recipe is not only easy to make, it’s also a mess-free and safer alternative for kids! And the absolute best part? It’s sparkly and glittery, too. Perfect for my glitter-lovin’ princess!

Make way! Make way! Zoë turned 6!

When it came to pick a theme for her Birthday party this year, Zoë didn’t have to think twice about choosing a Moana inspired celebration. She has been obsessed with the movie ever since we watched it in the cinema, so it was a no-brainer choice, really.

With less than two weeks to plan the house party and work on all the DIYs, it was a mad rush to get everything done, but I think we pulled it off. Come check out what the ocean breeze swept into our little party!
