Earth Day Slime aka Stripped Slime
The Earth is the best planet to live on! Yes, I said it. This fun slime reminds me of Earth with the nice blues and greens. Make this Earth Day slime to celebrate Earth Day or any other time you want to make striped slime. (You can use this same recipe for any slime!)
With both blues and greens, you can’t help but think of the Earth when playing with this slime.
How to make the striped slime aka Earth Day Slime
Instead of messing with food coloring, markers or dyes, I found Elmer’s Washable Color Glue (that comes in a ton of colors) to start with as my base! It’s going to save you time and headaches! You will also need some liquid starch and water. If you want to jazz it up and add some pixie dust (aka glitter) that would be a fun addition, too! This glue really is slime-life changing.
You will pour one bottle of blue glue into bowl. Add warm water to glue and stir to mix. If you want to jazz it up, you can add glitter and 3 drops of essential oil and mix. While stirring, slowly pour in liquid starch until desired consistency is achieved. Pull, stretch and play with slime with hands to get it good and mixed. Repeat again with a bottle of green glue.
Once the two slimes have been created, separate them out into lines and line them up side by side to make the stripes.
From there, the sky is the limit. You can roll it up and twist it onto each other.
Or you can stretch it between your fingers.
Or go for the smash and slide on a fun surface.
Make this slime to celebrate Earth Day or while you are watching Peter Pan.

Great design for the kids. My only question is, instead of using green/blue glue, could I still use white Elmers glue with these colors?
Hi Christian. Yes, you can absolutely use traditional white Elmer’s glue. You could either keep it white, or use food coloring to color the white glue. It’s totally your preference.
