My mini me and I like to make galaxy slime.  He thinks it's some magic, complicated, amazing feet that we've acomplished and I get to sate the insatiable attention seeker for a few minutes so it's a win-win for everybody.

Looks like....well snot, what did you think I was gonna say?

If you're like me and don't have the time to search through the internet to find directions that you have to read an entire lifes works to get to, below I've listed the simplest, most direct instructions on this super cool, super easy project that will impress your youngens and go so far as to mildly entertains your broody teenagers too.

Tawny and Bryson's Glow in the Dark Glitter Goop

(we usually double the ingredients for a bigger Goop but you do you boo boo)

1/2 cup Glow in the Dark, Glitter, Clear, or Clean Colored Glue of pretty much any kind.

1/2 cup room temp water

1/2 cup warm water

1/2 teaspoon Borax powder (you can find it where the laundry detergent is in any grocery store pretty much)

Saline solution or eye drops


1. Poor the contents of a regular sized bottle of the clue of your choice in a clear glass bowl (doesn't have to be clear it's just funner if it is)

2. Add 1/2 cup room temp water and mix

3. Get a cup and fill it with warm water then mix in the 1/4 teaspoon borax powder

4. After the Borax powder is visible dissolved in the warm water add it to the other mixture of glue and room temp water and get to mixing.

If you have really small kids you're going to want to help them with the mixing.  I usually hold the bowl at a slight tilt and get busy whisking like I would if I was making fluffy scrambled eggs.

When you feel like there is no more mixing to be had, add in some of the eye drops or saline solution (contact solution).  It helps to relieve some the the stickiness. Just start adding a few drops at a time until the Goop is where you want it and BAM! GOOP!

When your'e done playing with your Goop for the day keep it in a ziplock baggie or some type of Rubbermaid container with a lid that seals well.  It should last a good long while, or at least until it's time to try another project.

Keep it tight
