Fluffy Sand Slime Ingredients
Preparation goes a long way! Before you get started make sure you have these things on hand so you are not stopped mid project
- White school glue – I always use GALLON SIZED GLUE. Slime projects always lead to more slime and you cannot get a gallon in the store. I highly recommend just getting the big one as a more cost effective strategy. Amazon has free shipping and will be there quick!
- Liquid Starch – This can be impossible to find, so also better to grab online.
- Shaving Cream
- Fine Sand – I find fine colored sand at craft stores, but you can also buy Terrarium Sand on Amazon.
Fluffy Sand Slime Recipe
Ready to make your fluffy sand slime? When you make it this way, it comes out more like a flubber. The sand slime is soft and rubbery and has a low flow. If you want a faster flow, LEAVE OUT SHAVING CREAM but otherwise use the same instructions. Shaving cream makes it slower as it is and sand even moreso, so when you combine the two its not sticky. If you prefer a faster slime that oozes, leaving out the shaving cream is a must.
- Start with about 2 cups of white glue – you don’t have to measure it, just eyeball it into a bowl
- Now add some poofy shaving cream, I like the dollar store kind. My estimate is about 1 cup worth. Stir. If you want a faster flowing slime, leave this out!
- Now its time to get bright. Add color! I only use the Wilton’s Color Right for the best results. Its a super bright dye (can be used in foods too) and doesnt mess up the consistancy of your slime.
- Now add your find grain sand. I added about 1/2 cup worth. Stir really well into the bowl.
- Starch time! Add about 1/3rd- 1/4th cup liquid starch to the bowl and stir. You will immediately see the slime form up. Continue stirring a minute or so and then pick up and begin kneading your slime. I have added a video below on how to make slime and can help you if you have questions. The slime in the video does not include the shaving cream or sand but will show you the overall process of making slime if you need help.
- Once your slime is made, sit down and let it flatten out. You can fold it a few times like you would bread dough until its cohesive. Now you can play.
- Remember that this kind of slime is not as stretchy as regular sand slime, its more of a flubber, which is due to the additive of shaving cream. If you prefer it to be a quicker slime, you can leave out shaving cream and just use the sand. Its super fun this way as well and the kids loved it.
Tip: Try to turn it into rainbow explosion by doing this.
