DIY Sand Slime


Slime is so hot right now (any Zoolander fans out there?), and it’s so great for sensory play. We’ve tried several different slime recipes, some were more successful than others, but this is definitely the best slime we’ve ever played with!

Here’s what you need:

  • 1/2 cup clear washable school Glue
  • 1/2 water
  • 1/4 cup sand
  • 1/4 cup liquid laundry detergent (must contain borax – we used Bio-Vert)

Here’s what to do:

  • Mix water and glue thoroughly
  • Add sand and stir
  • Add laundry detergent and stir until it’s thick enough to knead with your hands

My daughter LOVES this slime. She played with it for a solid hour right after we made it, which is a really long time by three year old standards, and has pulled it out at least once a day since. We store it in an airtight container and it has held up well for over a week so far.
