Kinetic Slime Recipe that holds shapes, Kinetic Slime DIY , a perfect slime for cookie cutters, use over and over for tons of fun!
Now that Summer is out, Charlotte and I are back in the craft room hoping to provide you with some new ideas that take your sensory and slime play to a whole new level. We love to experiment on how to make slime because isn’t that what crafting is about? Today we wanted to see if we could take our sticky sand slime and turn it into more of a kinetic slime that could hold long term shapes but still go back together as slime for more play. I think we had a success making our kinetic slime and here is what we did.

Kinetic Slime Ingredients
Before you get started, its good to be prepared! I hate getting through part of a slime recipe or craft and realize I am missing something. I personally order all my craft supplies online because they tend to be cheaper and I can sit back and wait for things to arrive in a day or too. Plus, you don’t burn gas and you don’t have to drag the kids around- win win.
- White Glue (I buy by the gallon)
- Fine Grain Sand
Kinetic Slime Recipe
Just like a diy kinetic sand recipe, we first took about 1 cup of sand.
Second, add about 1 spoonful of cornstarch to your sand and stir until combined. Now add about 1 spoonful of soap and stir. You are halfway there!
(scroll down for rest of recipe and video)
Now that you have your sand and cornstarch mixture done, its time to add the slime. Most slime recipes, ours included, are very easy to make but giving you measurements can be a bit tricky. IN general, 1 cup of white glue and about 1/3rd cup starch works well, adding additional starch and kneading until absorbed. In this case, we did exactly that, adding additional starch as you can see in the video.
NOTE: The sand will give you plenty of hardness, so you do not need to over add starch. If you do, you will be left with a hard rock of sand. Once your glue and starch is added, try kneading it for a bit prior to adding more.
Once your mixture is done, you can use cookie cutters or play dough cutters to make shapes!

Sometimes it really helps to SEE something being made, so check out this video Charlotte made showing how we created the recipe and then what it does when you use it! Enjoy!

I have attempted your sand slime….With mixed results. What would really help would be the amounts of the particular ingredient….for example 1 cup sand , 1/2 cup cornstarch, etc. One of my batches turned out okay with some tweaking… but when I tried to half a batch- – – bleh.
Hi Michelle, if you watch the video we show what we did on it (its below) When it comes to making slime, you have to balance out the glue and starch. Some people like it to be more runny and some to be harder so every time I post the measurements WE use, people change what they like so I stopped posting them and more try to explain the process. A good rule of thumb is that you can always add more starch but not take it away. So I add about 1 cup of glue ( I just eyeball it) and about 1/3rd cup starch to the mixture, then knead till its not sticky anymore. If I find its not unsticking after about 2 minutes of play, I add a tiny bit more starch and reknead. I think of it as bread…you have to knead it and add just a tiny more till you get the results you are looking for. I hope this helps – Oh and I have a video on how to make slime that may be helpful. If you head to my YouTube channel and go to slime problems and how to fix or the easter slime, it helps walk you through it https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCFnlGLEEJR2hs1XvT7KzMww
