  • 1 Bottle 5 oz Clear Glue
  • 1 Cup Liquid Starch
  • 2 Lbs. Ultra Fine Sand


  1. Bake the sand for 4-5 hours at 120 degrees. You want as much moisture out of the sand as possible.
  2. Pour a bottle of glue and the liquid starch into a bowl. Mix together.
  3. You want your slime to be a bit on the runny side. If it is too stiff slowly add in more liquid starch.
  4. Add a spoonful of slime at a time to the sand until you have a consistency that you enjoy!

Recipe Notes

**Do Not Use ALL The Slime that You Made!
The more slime that you add the less it will behave like kinetic sand.
If this does not work out for you experiment with different grain sizes of sand.
