Sand Slime

Sand Slime DIY

We love everything slime! Check out our 15+ Silly Putty & Slime Recipes post to catch up on many other fun recipes we have made!

We live near the beach so we are always surrounded by sand. We successfully made ‘Sand Foam‘ before which was a huge hit in our house (and across the net) so I thought I would try my hand at some ‘Sand Slime’…it turned out wonderfully it’s very easy to make!

To make your own you will need:

I bottle of Clear Elmers Glue (118ml)

118 ml of water

* 1/2 teaspoon of Borax (I bought mine at Bunnings Hardware store for $8)

1/4 cup hot water

1 cup sand

Step 1

Pour your glue into a bowl

Step 2

Fill the same bottle with water and add to the glue

Step 3

Stir until well combined

Step 4

In a separate cup, add 1/2 cup of hot water

Step 5

Add 1/2 a teaspoon of the Borax to the water and stir until dissolved

Step 8

Pour this solution into your original bowl with the glue and water

Step 9

Pour in your cup of sand and stir…this is where the magic happens! It looks so cool when it all combines to become slimy slime!

Step 10

Enjoy this fun, sensory activity!
