A few weeks ago we bought a 20 pound bag of sand from Home Depot for $5, and we have been having so much fun creating sand play recipes and activities. So far we have made colorful MAGIC Sand and whipped up some super FUN quicksand. Today, we are sharing another fun way to PLAY with sand.
Sand Slime Play Recipe
We love SLIME and have created so many fun slime recipes. This time we added sand to our slime to make a super fun and stretchy sand. We began by whipping up a batch of basket slime.
Sand Slime Recipe
- 3/4 teaspoon of borax
- 1 & 1/3 cups very warm water
(Combine in a small bowl)
In a separate bowl combine
- Two cups of glue (we used glitter glue to give our sand sparkle but next time I would just use white school glue. The clear glue makes a stickier slime)
- 1 & 1/2 cups very warm water
Mix the ingredients of both bowls well and then combine the ingredients of both bowls. Use your hands to knead the slime. It will be very sticky at first, but it will lose a lot of it's stickiness as it is handled.
After kneading it a bit, begin adding sand
Continue to slowly work in more sand until you have the desired consistency. It is totally up to you how sandy you want your slime to be. We added a lot to make a super stretchy slime that felt very much like sand.
Add buckets and shovels and the fun can begin!
Rosie and Jewel love their sand slime! It is stretchy and oozy just like a good slime should be, but it feels like sand. Sand Slime is truly a fun way to explore sand in a different way this Summer!
