Polka Dot Slime

Slime never gets old around here! Here is a fun variation on an easy slime recipe. The added pom poms adds a a pop of color and also some great texture for sensory play. Plus, Polka Dot Slime is perfect for BIG WIDE stretches. For those with older children, here’s how to make your very own batch of ULTRA fun Polka Dot Slime:


  • 2 five ounce bottles of clear school glue
  • Liquid starch
  • Pom poms


  1. Pour two full five ounce bottles of clear glue into a cup or bowl.
  2. I recommend adding a little bit (on the order of tablespoons) of liquid starch at a time and stirring well in between each addition of liquid starch.
  3.  You want to keep adding until the slime is no longer sticky/stringy/sticking to the sides of the bowls.
  4.  Once the slime is formed and you’ve kneaded to make it uniform, add your pom poms and knead them in.
  5. Keep your slime in a sealed container or bag.  It will keep for several weeks of play!
