Unicorn Slime is one of our favorite borax-free slime recipes. My kids are obsessed with slime and unicorns, so what’s better than combining their two favorite things in a colorful ball of happiness!

We’ve partnered with Elmer’s glue to bring you this fun kid-friendly slime project! Elmer’s School Glue is the secret to making perfect unicorn slime. It brings out the pastel colors that make this slime so beautiful.

How to Make Unicorn Slime

We used a kid-friendly slime recipe with no harsh chemicals. That way, kids can get in on the mixing and help create this fun slime!

Slime Ingredients

Here’s what you need to make unicorn slime:

  • 6 bottles of Elmer’s School Glue (4 oz each)
  • 3 TBSP baking soda, divided
  • 6 TBSP contact solution, divided
  • Food coloring (blue, green, yellow, purple, pink, red)
  • Wooden craft sticks (for stirring)
  • Bowls for mixing


Empty a bottle of Elmer’s School Glue to a small bowl. Add 1/2 TBSP baking soda and stir until combined.

Add 1 drop of food coloring to the mixture and stir. You want a light, pastel color, so be sure not to add too much food coloring. We decided to make blue, green, yellow, purple, pink, and orange slime. For the orange, we added 1 drop of red food coloring and 2 drops of yellow, but all other colors required just one drop.

Pour in 1 TBSP contact solution and stir. The mixture will start to clump together and pull from the sides. Remove it from the bowl and knead it with your hands until it is no longer sticky and is pliable.

If the slime remains sticky, you can sprinkle some more contact solution to the outside of it.

Repeat with all of the colors, until you have six separate colors of slime.
