- Elmer’s 4 oz White School Glue
- Elmer’s 8.75 oz Magical Liquid
- 1 tbsp of water
- Small bowl
- Fine art or play sand (about 2 pounds)
- Shaving cream
- Bowl and spatula for mixing
- Measuring spoon (tbsp)
Combine 1 tbsp of Elmer’s White School Glue with 1 tbsp of shaving cream in your small
Add in a few drops of Elmer’s Magical Liquid to your glue mixture – do not pour in. You
want to create a slime that is just activated, meaning it will come together and not stick to the bowl,
but will still stick to your fingers.
Add in about 1 tbsp of water to your sticky slime to create a jiggly slime. Your slime
should continue to not stick to the bowl but will still stick to your fingers. If adding the water made
your slime deactivate, add a few more drops of your Elmer’s Magical Liquid to reactivate the jiggly
Add the sand a little bit at a time – about enough to just cover the top of your slime in
your bowl. Thoroughly press and knead the sand into your slime until it’s completely mixed in.
Repeat step four until your mixture no longer sticks to your fingers, and instead feels
soft like a sandy dough that is not tacky, but still stretchy. You will likely use almost half of your
2lb bag of sand – be patient!
Once your slime no longer feels like slime, and is stretchy, soft, gritty, spreadable, and
mouldable, you’ve sufficiently turned it into a Satisfying Sand! Have fun playing!
