Even in the dark you will be sure to see your kids smiling faces as they play with a homemade batch of Glow in the Dark Slime! We love this recipe because the slime glows without a black light, doesn’t require us to make a borax solution, and is super fun to play with! It’s so easy to make and it glows without a black light (but you could always turn one on to make it even brighter). This glowing activity certainly makes it to the top of our list with our Glow in the Dark Puffy Paint Paintings.
My kids have fun with this slime with the lights on and off as you can see in the pictures. Now get ready to make your own Glow in the Dark Slime and take your own pictures of your kiddos having as awesome time playing with this cool sensory activity!
This recipe does not call for borax or glow in the dark paint. With that said you should always make sure to supervise any child activity including this one and make sure all participants know that the supplies and slime are NOT edible.

Amazing piece of information. I’ll definitely teach my kid this. I can’t wait to see my kids making glow in dark slime.
I tried this out with my kids and we indeed had a glow experience, thank God for your warning though that they are not edible my four year old attempted trying some out. A very educative piece .Thank you.
