Tangled Movie Night – Fun for All
We whipped up this Tangled glitter slime as part of a family movie night because Rapunzel is one of my daughter’s favorite characters. If you haven’t seen it, this is one kid’s movie parents actually enjoy.

The kids gobbled this Tangled popcorn recipe up (go figure) and it took seconds to put together.
This Rapunzel braid bookmark is the perfect fine-motor craft for early readers. Watch the Disney Tangled movie and then read Rapunzel’s story. Win-win!
Is Slime Safe?
By now, you might have noticed the slime craze. Influencers on YouTube and Instagram went CRAZY for slime in all forms, textures, colors, and amounts.
But there have also been those who question if using Borax (and other chemicals) are safe when touched repeatedly. The answer regarding Borax, boric acid, and sodium borate: it is safe.
This recipe is borax powder-free, however, we are using contact lens solution which contains boric acid.
That being said, anything has the chance to irritate sensitive skin. For young ones (or mouthers), put any slime in a sealed zipper bag for play. If a friend or little one manages to consume it, however, do call the American Association of Poison Control Centers at 800-222-1222 immediately.
Note: if you see “borax-free slime recipes” like this one, they will still need an activating agent (which will most likely contain sodium borate or boric acid). NEVER SUBSTITUTE LAUNDRY DETERGENT OR OTHER CHEMICALS IN SLIME RECIPES.
Tangled Glitter Slime Recipe
We whipped up a quick batch of glitter slime in true Rapunzel fashion! This recipe uses contact lens solution, though you can use a recipe with borax if you’d like.
- 6 oz purple glitter glue
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon contact lens solution (plus a bit more to reduce tackiness)
- flower buttons, jewels, or other tidbits of their choosing
This is the easiest slime to put together and the best part is that kids can do it themselves! Dump the glue into a bowl used for crafts and add the other ingredients. Stir until incorporated, adding contact solution in small amounts to minimize the slime sticking to hands.
My daughter added some daisy flower buttons to her slime to “up the Rapunzel factor.”
