Night Sky Activities for Preschool: Galaxy Slime

We are really digging this night sky theme! My kiddos and their classmates are really into sensory exploration right now, and the starry night sky lends itself to so many amazing sensory activities. Today we delved into the world of slime and gak for the first time, and I’m SO glad we did- the kids played with this for hours, and Daddy even joined in the fun! I can’t wait to take this to school with us to see how the kids’ classmates react- I’m betting they’ll love it just as much as we do!

Making the slime was pretty easy after I figured out the nuances. Yes, there are nuances to slime making- I’m as surprised as you are ANYWAY, to make our cosmic slime we built upon the tried and true recipe of equal parts Sta-Flo Liquid Starch and Elmer’s Clear School Glue. I wanted our slime to consist of several galaxy colors so I could swirl them into a big spiral for the invitation, so I made smaller batches of black, turquoise, violet, and white/silver using the following proportions (I used the recipe below for each different color):

Make this beautiful, sparkly, stretchy slime that looks just like the swirls of a galaxy and keep your preschooler entertained for hours!
