But you know us, we can’t get away from making slime out of something. We have tried so many slime recipes, I knew we had to make this Sofia the First slime!
Bo isn’t the most princess-oriented girl in the world; you’ll find her just as happy to watch Puppy Dog Pals and The Lion Guard as she is watching princess programming, but she is still a sucker for all things sparkly.
She LOVES Sofia the First because of her sparkly necklace and frilly dress.
Our inspiration behind this slime is Sofia’s purple necklace, the Amulet of Avalor. I wanted to mimic the sparkly, glittery feel of the necklace, and I think we captured it perfectly!
Once I made up this Sofia the First slime, I realized it would make the perfect party favor at a Sofia the First party. Little girls and boys will love how stretchy, sparkly, and purple this slime is!
How to Make Sofia the First Slime
Slime is made when boron mixes with the polymer chains in the glue, creating strong, but flexible bonds between the molecules. There are so many fun tweaks you can make to a basic slime recipe, like my kid’s favorite, fluffy slime!
Since this slime does contain borax, if you have a sensitivity to it, you may want to try our baking soda slime instead.
How to Fix Ruined Slime
If you don’t want to waste a lot of ingredients, try mixing up a small batch first to make sure you won’t have to tweak it before you make the larger version.
We always stock up on gallon sizes of glue and the large laundry starch just in case something goes wrong (but it almost always goes smoothly).

Sofia the First Royal Jewel Slime
Follow these simple directions to make your own Sofia the First slime!
- Clear glue
- Liquid laundry starch
- Purple food coloring
- Silver glitter
- Pretend pearl necklace (optional, but fun!)
- Small craft containers (if you want to turn the slime into party favors)
We always use the same slime recipe. Add equal parts of clear glue and water (we usually use half a cup). Add your purple food coloring and glitter to the bowl and stir.
Add an equal amount of laundry starch to the glue mixture (half a cup in our case). Stir with a fork. At first, the slime will look cloudy, but the more you stir it and stretch it, the clearer and stretchier it will become. When it is stretchy, clear, and no longer sticky it is ready.
If you’re just making it to play with, you can give it to your preschooler at this point. I also had a pretend pearl necklace that I gave to Bo to play with along with the slime. It added to the “royal” feel of the slime.
To make the slime into a party favor, just add it to a small craft container. I found a Sofia the First sticker on the Disney Junior website and printed off some copies for the top of my containers.
I was so tickled that the label was the perfect size for my containers!
I glued the paper to the top of the container and wrapped a bit of pearl ribbon around the jar for extra flair.
It’s such a simple and low-cost party favor, and makes a wonderful alternative to candy.
