Galaxy Goo

Updated: Jul 20, 2020

This dough is absolutely beautiful and fun to make! It has tons of glitter, so that might be something you want to add outside. If glitter is not your thing, feel free to leave it out. You can use only the confetti and it will work just fine with less sparkle.


2 cups white flour

2 cups water

1 bottle black food coloring

1 T cooking oil

1 T cream of tartar

1 cup salt

glitter and/or confetti stars

To Make:

Mix water, food coloring and oil in a medium saucepan on medium-low heat.

In a separate bowl, mix cream of tartar, flour, and salt.

Slowly add the dry ingredients to the saucepan. Stir until mixture begins to thicken and form a slight sheen. Remove from heat and cool for a few minutes. Then begin to knead and combine to help it reach the proper dough consistency.

Give each child a paper plate or pan (cookie sheets with sides work really well!) with glitter and confetti stars.

Roll the dough over it to begin incorporating the sparkles. This really helps keep the mess to a minimum! Once it's mixed, you're ready to play with it however you want!


Galaxy Slime

If slime is your thing, this one is super cool and easy to make!


5 oz bottle clear glue

one bottle Elmer’s Magical Liquid

black food coloring

glitter and/or confetti stars

To Make:

Pour the bottle of clear glue into a bowl. Add a few drops of food coloring and mix. Then add the glitter and confetti stars. Begin adding the magical liquid a little bit at a time until your slime begins to form. When it starts to become more solid, you can take it out of the bowl and continue mixing with your hands. Add in more confetti and glitter if you want and keep mixing. The slime is done when it easily pulls away from your hands without being too sticky.

Be sure to let me know how this project worked for you! I would love to see your photos/videos!
